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

Thank you all for your kind comments.Best, Frank...
__Ahhh... the sheen of that crow as seen through the streaks of rain drops running down the window glass. A grand sight. _m
I'm sure that he enjoys, I love the rain, so this beautiful Haiku is very touching :)
