This sweet bushtit landed on my path while I was visiting Redding, California this past spring.

After playing with the image, what emerged was a forlorn little fellow for whom I wrote this haiku.


My heart goes out to all those in Redding, and elsewhere in the world where forest fires are ravaging lives.
