They call them cattle
egrets sit upon the cows--
black and white pictures

   There are black Angus cattle in the fields next to my house. It makes a very stunning picture when the graceful white egrets rest on the cattle's back.  This poem meets the 5-7-5 requirements of a haiku, but I was playing with the line breaks to get some enjambment.  I'm not sure the poem is successful.  What do you think?  Can you try writing your own haiku today?  Have fun writing.

Give yourself a hug. You deserve it.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I'm not sure this is a successful haiku, Some of the cows have interesting faces. I need to get my camera out to see if I can capture some of them.
