Ephemeral art on a rock

A flock of finches
lands on a jagged river boulder,
painting it buttery yellow.

Dr Sunwolf (WordWhispers)

Not sure Dr Sunwolf considered making these words a haiku. In point of fact, I’ve chopped off his his second sentence and turned it into a title.

And no – it doesn’t quite scan. If I’d needed it to scan, I’d have removed three words: “lands”, “a” and “buttery”.

Wait a minute!

Barbra Streisand … a song in A Star is Born … What was it?

Ah yes! Everything:

“I’d like to plan a city, play the cello
Play at Monte Carlo, play Othello
Move into the White House, paint it yellow.”
