Ronovan’s Haiku challenge: Red & Bird

Painting by Pieter Bruegel

Blackbird sings his song
Rippling liquid through green shade
Until red sunset.

Black feathered bird lies
on the white snow stained with blood
red as lover’s lips.

Redbreast in the snow
singing winter firebird songs
magic conjures spring.

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.
