Vacation on a Limb

#Haiku Happenings #3: Dwight’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!

Roth Poetry

Two lovebirds resting

Spring nest building pauses

Resting from their work

Homebuilding can be tiring

Vacationing together

EER_0934

This tanka was written for Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge. We are to use the word Vacation/Holiday in our poem.  I finished this Photo painting of these birds today. I am stretching the prompt a little to give them a much needed vacation on a limb!

This Photo was shot out my back window with a 200mm zoom lens. I got lucky on this shot. Only one chance for the photo and it turned out great. Printed on canvas then painted with acrylics.
