CROWS AND BLOSSOMS

A summer hokku:

Sunrise;
From near and far,
The sound of crows talking.

Yes, crows talk.  They talk in Crow — which can be rather raucous.

And another for summer:

Summer heat;
Suddenly the Poet’s Jasmine
Has blossomed.

Poet’s Jasmine is the common name for Jasminum officinale, which fortunately will grow here in the Pacific Northwest.  My vine was covered with its blossoms this morning; they just appeared overnight.
