Read introduction

This Haiku was published in 50 Haikus Issue 5, Volume 1 many thanks to Ashley Capes for comments on the original. The impetus for this poem come from the flocks of magpies that come and sit under our veranda in the summer heat and drink the water we leave for them. They have a beautiful bird call which I decided was their water song.
