Hi Jan, I’m just coming back to say congratulations on your win. I wasn’t aware that our final line was so similar. I guess we both had “ robins” on our mind:-)Alexis

This is such an inspiring, imagination driven Haiku Jan, Winters in Europe and America are cold but beautiful, I didn't were a coat this Winter for, temperatures were 21, 22 degrees, but night time used to go down to 0 -2 sometimes. Good luck in the contest my friend. Blessings and hugs, Jennifer.

we had a dull misty drizzly day, we walked to see mum then on our way back a rotund robin hopped down from the wall onto the pavement in front of us and then flew back up so i had to do a poem:-) hugs jan xx
