Haiga – egret symbolism

My random net browsing led me to an egret picture and an interesting write up on the symbolism of egrets. I was wondering if some or all of them were even true, the theories around what they suggest when they appear in one’s dreams in specific ways. Like an egret in flight, an egret on one foot etc. Hope this link works for an interesting read

That I could not decide whether to go with the totems perhaps reflects in my haiga. Read from the beak I get one dimension, and from the feet another!

happy mondaying around a mundane 🙂
