#Writephoto ~ Harbinger

Thursday photo prompt: Harbinger #writephoto

My friend, with his dark black feathers

and royal blue and white flash of colour

Visits my garden most weeks.

He particularly likes my apple tree to perch in

He stays a good while, watching me

washing up at my kitchen window.

One for sorrow, what nonsense

His visit means good news is on the way

I hoped it would be the same today

And mark the visit on my calendar.

Within three days good news will arrive.

Sure enough on the second day after his visit

my daughter rang me to say I was about to become

a grandmother for the first time.

What great news heralded

by my fine feathered friend…?
