Robin welcomes the day

robin bright s

song remains as light–
an aural after-image
reflected in green

opening the door to spring–
releasing the burdened night

I missed Draw-a-Bird Day yesterday (again!) but Colleen’s words for Tanka Tuesday were just right for a tribute to the earliest singer of my neighborhood’s dawn.

    I love your poem–“light–
    an aural after-image”–opening doors to spring. And the robin!

    Happy to see you are painting! Nice Robin. I dismantled my art room so E could have a room. She finally agreed to let me do it.

    Like how you painted its red breast! 😃 And I enjoyed your poem too – a welcomed sign of Spring is a Robin’s song… One was trying to pull out a worm today in our yard, looked like a tug-of-war! ☺️
