Year of Grace, Day 69. Two magpies

A Haiku —

Two magpies perched on a birch

One winter morn

Bathing in the rare sun!

 

 

`

 

Lemon blossom scents the sitting room,

In the garden  — orange-throated nasturtiums,

Nasturtiums

Gaudy cyclamen and spindle berries,

Hydrangea flowerheads in purply-pink and a rare late-blooming blue bellflower,

Sights on a forest walk in the afternoon — orange fungi and enokidake (Flammulina),

Filmy foliage against the white and black trunks of birches.

Dinner of porcini soup, garlicky roasted broccoli with parmesan, turkey saltimbocca, and caramelized apples —

For all these blessing today, I am thankful!
