    Perhaps … notes on a tangled staff. Notwithstanding, a great image.

    This has been an inspiration to me to think of the presence of birds in haiku.

    Such a sharp image! Just have been working on a poem in response to seeing a dozen robins sitting in a tree filled with berries on Christmas day. A stark winter view come to life. And your's came through in three lines!
