Fiery robin haiku sequence

In the golden tree

a bird red throat full of song

summer’s sweet fire

*

In dark winter’s depths

red throat pulses fierce defiance

singing to the sun

*

Black tree bare branches

fire heart sings of summer

winter not so cold.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
