birds on wire

Cold, tight wires loosen.

Relaxed wire makes springtime swing,

As birds bask warmly.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you.

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

    Thanks, shoreacres. We have had wonderful temperatures here for about ten days, but the winds have been notable to say the least! They could give our birdies a great adventure on their wire swings. Someone was telling me about watching a crow rise in the air but it was blown backward when it tried to fly, so it landed and walked. Sounded funny. See if you can hang on and make fun out of it. Won’t be much of an option, huh?

  3. They look happy too. Well written.

      Thank you. I don’t remember having contact with you before. That might mean you are especially fond of haiku, and found me because of that. I’m coming to check your space. Hope to see you more.
