neighbours

people hide
to sunbathe and swim
birds don’t care

An interesting comparison at the Middle Brighton Sea Baths in Brighton, (Melbourne) recently. Behind that screen and under the umbrellas were people who had paid to use the facilities . At the adjacent seawall some Cormorants and a Seagull rested up in the sun before taking to the water at their leisure. Same sun, same water. Isn’t the life of a bird so much less complicated?

open beach
calls birds and people
free for all

    1. Thanks for your astute observation Magarisa. I nearly always have a photo first then create the haiku even though a possible haiku causes me to take the photo on many occasions. In this instance I took the photos as part of Photography workshop exercises, the haiku urge leapt out later.
