Next in the Post-it note poetry 2014 haiku series. Inspired by one of those truly odd occurrences. I was sitting on my western facing verandah one afternoon and a heron alighted on a branch of our beloved gum tree that had sadly seen the last of its 40 odd years. Here was a waterbird, some 30 km from any water, perched in a leafless tree. I thought to myself that maybe he was lost. So in this haiku, using the technique of comparison I wanted to present the image of the dead tree, now lost to us and the heron perched, also lost.
