It's still not quite right, in my opinion. Anyway, here's a better version, I think:

starling multitude
murmurates ---
I get mesmerized

(Sorry for being so fussy. I would have preferred to have just edited my original post, but after a certain amount of time has elapsed, I guess you can't do that anymore.)

Ger Jonker if you'd like to watch the video in the previous post, then just click on "You Tube" in the olive green rectangle above the video.

Ger Jonker I screwed up the punctuation in Sunnyside Troll's poem, "Chicken in a Cage". Therefore, I am going to post it again. This time though, I'll add a youtube video at the end of it to show viewers what the debeaking process on a factory farm looks like.




Chicken in a Cage



I - 'm inside.
N - o room.
S - uffering with
A - ss wounds,
N - o beak.
I - nhumane torture
T - raumatizes me.
Y - are you doing this?

I started feeling a little guilty about posting Imai Sei's haiku shortly after I posted it. I was feeling guilty because I am vegan and baseball gloves are usually made out of leather. Then I started to wonder if leather-free baseball gloves exist. Woohoo! Apparently they do.
