fresh snow -
two magpies bicker
in a silver birch.

A brilliant image - we don't get magpie's on Islay but your haiku makes me see them. Thanks

Oh yes, Juliet, magpies are really good at bickering.

No snow on my part of the world today, but I love the shining image in this poem.

Great one. Showing the strength that careful word choice can achieve. Love 'bicker' - such a brittle winter sound.
