    Well, when you are gifted by a Chad Lee Robinson haiku you know it will take you on a journey that will stay with you a long time.

    Robinson somehow makes us have an incredible tale by our own fireside, but we still get to taste his part of the world:

    from the harmonica . . .

    And a wonderful alliterative boost adds to the musicality of the piece.

    warm regards,

    Alan, With Words

    You know you reading a truly great haiku when you are literally pulled into a different place and time. So it is with this poem.

    Chad Lee Robinson delivers us into his world through this rich, multi-sensory poem. The smell of the dust, the open horizon with the twilight stars first appearing, and the sounds… oh the musicality of the sounds. Chad literally invites us to "tap" along with him as he conjures a virtual campfire and plays for us on his harmonica. Magical poem.

    what transpires in this haiku is truly magical without making it cynical even in the slightest way. The haiku has almost been plucked out of a Neil Gaiman universe. What you treat us here with is a lasting legacy of a delicately unfolding magic.
