Autumn haiku

October 5, 2010


Wind whisks the sea white
Whipping sand at face and hands,
Turnstones circle low.



The haiku is yesterday’s; the photo is from February 2009. I’ve shown gulls circling low because I don’t seem to have any photos of airborne turnstones.

[Edit: After reading the haiku on Twitter, Tom Guadagno sent me a link to this lovely video of turnstones and other birds on the Welsh coast.]

Feel free to add an autumn haiku in the comments section.

Stan Carey - seagull semiotics

If I were a gull, I would probably puzzle over this sign too.
