house sparrow calling
by my rooftop, cheep cheeping,
spying down on me.

Sharing this dashing house sparrow, who I heard singing sweetly in the beginning of the week. When I have time in the morning, I usually check my windows to see if there are any sparrows fluttering around. I couldn’t see or hear any, and took off to work on something in my studio, and that’s when I heard this fellow calling to me. I had to go up a ladder, and peer out at him through a small window to capture his image. I made a quick sketch, (before he darted off) and completed the watercolor and ink as the week progressed. I wrote the haiku right after I sketched him. I’m happy to hear any birds songs in the month of February, and thankful for their nature distraction!
