Little Haiku

flustered chickadee
tail feathers akimbo
with each gust

not flying but carried
by the storm

(Thanks to the women of One Deep Breath
for their continuing inspiration.
I mis-remembered the prompt,
so wrote about something small and pretty,
rather than tiny and pretty,
but what the heck.)

great imagery in both of these. i can see the poor little fellers trying to steady themselves in the wind. :-)

Really like both of these, but especially the first -- tail feathers akimbo -- fabulous image.

Nice images. I can see the little things working out passage with the invisible carrier...
