onto the lawn -
blackbirds wait.

I love your Haiku...and thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I visited Edinburgh a few years ago and really enjoyed the city and loved all of Scotland. Best wishes for a happy Christmas celebration!

Great to remember the birds at this time of year - we will be giving them some edible presents tomorrow morning.

Best wishes for your christmas time.

I have no lawn but I throw raisins out all the time, the blackbirds are always first about in the morning, and usually beat the starlings to them! x

All the joys of the season, Juliet, and best wishes for the new year.

Your raisins make a nice metaphor for haiku.

Just beautiful, so simple in its elegance. I hope your Christmas was equally charming.

I still don't really know how you do a haiku-but yours sounds nice.-If I threw raisnins on the lawn-the neighborhood kids would probably get to them before the blackbirds did!
