I hope you find
something here that will touch your heart. The poems here will all be very short, some will be a Haiku style, and were prompted by the 'a river of stones' project: http://ariverofstones.blogspot.com/2011/01/what-is-small-stone.html

31. A joy of magpies (haiku)

A joy of magpies
cackle their chatty gossip
fishwives in the tree.

Q.  Why ‘joy’ when that’s not the collective word for magpies en bloc ? 
A. From the rhyme : ‘one for sorrow, two for joy……..’   (wikipedia)
