Robin Haiku

First snow of winter.
As if on cue, a robin
glows from my table.

How lovely, Clare, amazing that you managed such great shots, he must feel very confident and "at home".

Thank you Maxine! I took lots of pictures in the hope that some might turn out more or less in focus - and a couple of them did. I was very pleased.

Very pretty haiku and robin. Haven't seen a robin for decades, though they were prevalent in the country town where I spent some of my childhood.

Best wishes for Christmas Clare, and a splendid New Year.

Thank you, Anne! Maybe no robin - but I expect you have a plethora of other birds to make up for this.

Ah, he is so sweet and tiny compared to a North American robin! Happy Christmas-to-come, Clare!

Oh this is SO sweet! Lucky,lucky you. I adore robins and they are an abiding fond memory for me of our visit to Britain - so long ago now. What a treat for you to have this robin visit and for you to be able to capture it so perfectly in both word (I LOVE the haiku!) and picture.
