Day 139 — Sound of Woodpeckers — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty comes the form and sound of woodpeckers. From my studio I can hear the kwirr of the red bellied woodpecker. I keep hearing knocking at the door and make several trips to answer it. No one was there. While outside I hear the chirp of the downy woodpecker and see him drink from the hummingbird feeder. In the distance i hear the pileated woodpecker’s distinctive knocking. Back up in the studio, I hear knocking again. I look out the window and see the red bellied woodpecker knocking on the aluminum siding.
