February 27 Haiku

icy branches, red column 2

a cardinal calls out:
ice covers the cherry tree
start the day slowly

The prompt this week from One Deep Breathe is "color". We have woken up to ice several days in a row lately, and today it is all fog. February is fading away into a wash of gray. It's nice to remember that Chinese New Year is full of red colors this week too...

I'm envious of the photo. I wanted to take one like that, but I just didn't have any "branchy" bushes in my yard or the neighbor's...

The lacy ice pattern in the branches is so lovely, as is the poem. Very well done!

Ice has it's own color, here the red shines through.

Great shot with the red background making me think of the Robin singing.
