haiku for the day: sparrowhawk

I often use photographs for my morning prompts. The first thing I do is get a cup of coffee and sit down and open up a blog called Monochromia. Monochromia is a group of photographers who post black and white photographs. In all this world of color, you’d think black and white photography was a dying art. But it isn’t. It’s alive and well. And Monochromia is proof of that. The photograph that inspired this haiku was not from Monochromia but from my wallpaper. Each day a program down loads a new photograph to my desktop.

with wings like a fan
