Sinister Spring Heralds

My response to the Tercet challenge with Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond

 

Jackdaws sailed in on a brisk breeze

Descending on bare branches of tall trees

(Paused in black parentheses)

 

Jackdaws flocked in drizzly weather

Yapping and flapping off together

(Sharp of beak and ragged of feather)

 

Jackdaw lovebirds entwined and perched

Like gargoyles on a nearby church

(Sinister spring heralds in the silver birch)
