Snap of an Icicle

muffled and silenced
the snap of an icicle
engulfed by fresh snow

the quiet whiteness broken
by a robin’s burst of song            Kim M. Russell 13th May 2019

My response to Carpe Diem #1663 Tan Renga Challenge Month May 2019 (10) snap of an icicle

In today’s episode, we are creating Tan Renga with one of my own haiku – I’m blushing with a mixture of pleasure and embarrassment. Thank you Chèvrefeuille!

  1. I do love the song of happy birds in the morning. Sometimes when I was working nights and they were still singing away when I got home, I have to admit that my thought was “shut up, you idiots!”
    That being said, there are fewer and fewer birds here in the city. I rarely hear them sing anymore.

    1. We’re so lucky to live in the countryside, where there are so many birds and so many different species. Morning birdsong is wonderful!
