Resolution

high resolution -
the unknown bird in the bush
becomes a brambling


the brambling is one of the birds I most want to see every winter

Hi There, what a beautiful resolution, mmm, brambling, I have never seen one I think, would love to though...Happy 08 to you.

Dave said...

A fun take on the prompt! Hadn't heard of that bird - I love the name.

polona said...

oh, this is clever!
we have a number of chaffinches here but i don't think i've seen bramblings...

Crafty Green Poet said...

Polona - have you looked very closely at your chaffinches? The two are more similar than you expect!

Dave - I like the name too

UL - they're lovely little birds, happy 08 to you too

Avery refreshing post after all those New Year's resolutions! Nice haiku!

i like how you went at the word from a different perspective.

Your poem caused a flashback - a cardinal on a branch from the corner of my eye. Split-second stuff.

Janice Thomson said...

Excellent Juliet - love the word play!. We don't have those here. They're very colorful.

Dale said...

No bramblings this side of the Atlantic, alas!

Lovely haiku.

Crafty Green Poet said...

paisley - now I'd thought of that and provided a crafty link to the RSPB page about the brambling!

Linda - yes I didn't want to write about new years resolutions and was glad to find a different angle...

mariacristina - cardinal - now there's a bird I'd love to see!

janice, gautami, sb - thanks

dale - well we don't get cardinals this side!
