Nicely done.
Last night, we were wearing winter coats and gloves at midnight as we were shooting fireworks (Victoria weekend here in Canada).

Happy Victoria weekend, aurora.

And thanks to all.

Yesterday was a lovely fall day here.

Only trouble is, it's supposed to be spring.

As the publication date indicates, polona, this was written right at the transition from winter to spring. The robin may have been a bit premature. This has been a relatively cool spring around here, though.

anyway, i do like the haiku :)

Robin: Turdus migratorius? Listened it's singing from net also... The bird, whether too early or not, is not said to be nervous; perhaps looking a good tree for making a net? Snow falls in flakes, some of snowflakes visible, but not too much snow in the air because robin is seen flying among the falling snow. Pretty, beautiful. And warm, too?
