Cardinal in December Haiku

Image of a red cardinal sitting on a branch against a gray background

a flash of red wings
sudden against the gray sky
buoys my winter heart

  1. Really nice. I love cardinals also, and they have special meaning for me (state bird of Ohio).

    Hope you’re doing well…Janet
