Fair Dinkum Haiku 014: Bone.

Vulture spies jackal.
Gnawing on Bone stripped of flesh.
Vulture swoops to pinch.

the sound or shadow of a vulture gives me shivers.

Love the vultures up here in South Carolina, they are nature's cleaning crew.

G' Day LIFE RAMBLINGS, There not the prettiest of birds so i don't blame you for feeling that way :-).

G' Day Beach Bum, They are the scavengers of the skies :-).

This one packs a punch.

I was going to write something about a group of vultures but thought I better look up the collective name for them ... it's a "wake of vultures" or a "committee" now that's telling isn't it?

Excellent. Just as it should be done.

G' Day JANE HEALY, What's stopping you from writing a story about vultures go for it. :-).

G' Day DAVE KING, I try to make it realistic as possible :-).

G' Day CLOUDIA, Never thought of it that way :-).
