Aubrie Cox is the new incoming editor of Frogpond, the journal of the Haiku Society of America, starting with vol. 39 : 1 Winter issue 2016 (printed Spring 2016).
She suggested poets take a snapshot of the magazine in various surroundings. What better than when two iconic British icons are involved! That of bluebells, and a robin.
It was only fitting that today, when I received my copy of Frogpond, where my crow haiku was published, that another bird, a robin, came visiting. The European Robin is a Winter/Christmas image in the U.K. and other parts of Europe.
The robin haiku is unpublished, produced in honour of Frogpond being visited by this most friendly and iconic of birds in Britain.
