I like the drawing and the verse written by you. It is amazing how you pointed out the little feathers just by some pencil strokes. By the darker more intensive colours of the branches and the lighter background, the sparrow is really put into the focus. You have also centered it in the drawing and that highlights it still more.

Concerning the Tanka you have strictly kept the Tanka verse rhyme (5-7-5-7-7) concerning the syllables. And it refers to human nature as haiku is more refering to nature outdoors. You have stuck to this as well.
I like the message you have concealed in your written work. The appearance does not matter nor the first impression but what is behind all that is the essence of a personality. In combination with the sparrow: It looks rather simple as a bird but can be so beautiful in playing and being around. Also when other birds might sing better, I like the tunes a sparrow sing. And those birds show their gratitude by singing the whole day in front of my window for having them fed all over the winter time :)

At first appearance it looks cute and happy. But there is some kind of apprehension and sadness in his eye expression...anyway another nice animal drawing!

That's only because, unlike you Chris, I can't really draw all that good. :rofl: (any expressions which land on the faces of anything I might draw, is purely accidental! :lol: )

Thank you. :) :hug:!!

Nope. Don't even have an account. (I can barely keep up with this place! :rofl: ) I think the whole world is there though...or that's the feeling it paints. We will all get nuked one day because everyone will be engrossed there when it happens. LOL

I've only just started on there because my closest friend is there..... I'm on my cell phone right now, tomorrow I'll link u her DA page... She's a absolute treasure.... I just adore her... I met her in very early 2009.. I was her very first watcher and it developed into a very close friendship which goes beyond DA. She'd love to meet my genuine friends... U know what I mean Linda.... And I know that u guys will love her....

Thank you! I'm hand picking who I want to introduce her to. I only want genuine people to be her friend, we have had a belly full of false people . and my friends and her deserve so much better!  It's funny cause I've kinda had a bee in my bonnet about false people here at DA for ages...So many fake people... "Oh your art is magnificent"  Oh really? Why Arn't u watching me then? Or faving and commenting?  Or they only comment or fave once I've faved their piece..... Omg..... I'm tired of the bullshit and so is Morgana. :iconmorganavasconcelos: here's my girl!

"...we defy augury: there's a special Providence in the fall of a sparrow " Much learn-ed, great work Jack Sparrow LA emote by jacksparrowlaplz

Is God the almighty one
Providence everlasting
To all creatures
Is it that the sparrow so falls
Yet such a care is given [inspired by Linda]
