    They do look as if they’re meditating; what they are really doing is plotting their next bit of mischief…

    Now crows meditate, but soon will caw for snow 🙂 This is what they do. Nice poem, Ashi ❤

    A lovely haiku. Crows are quite fascinating, one of the smarter birds :).

  4. I love the contrast of the crows, often, but not always, so noisy, and the meditation.

  5. Is there a cultural significance to crows in Japan? I ask because my friends here in Korea have a much different symbolic view of crows than my friends in the US did.
