dull rainy day
through my window
the sheen of a crow

Well written. The rain certainly does bring out the sheen.

Your lovely poetry mimics my day perfectly! Well, except it was a squirrel instead of a crow. :)

I like the imagination of sheen on the feathers of these dark birds in a dark season in a dull day. Many people cannot realize the beauty of crows. So your ku is a tribute on crows. You know there is a haiku of Basho about autumn and crows. Too late now for a research. Will do it tomorrow. And in classical German poetry the crow was the "Totenvogel" - an animal like the vulture. Your ku is a good contrast to that bad view.
And the juxtaposition dull day / sheen of a crow is surprising and comforting.
A positive autumn haiku!

Best wishes

__Ahhh... the sheen of that crow as seen through the streaks of rain drops running down the window glass. A grand sight. _m
