Space Enough For More Than One

She comes every year. She doesn’t come for an hour or a day, she comes for a few months. She’s a snowbird. My husband and I are her summer solace. She is originally from here in the Northeast, but has resided in Florida for some time now. No, you can’t live with everyone, but so far it works for us.

When she first came she was a visitor. My motto is, once or twice you are a visitor, after that, make yourself at home. Respect it as you would your own and don’t complain if I don’t have your kind of coffee. So if your in my vicinity, come on by and visit. I’ll leave the light on.

Birds at my feeder
Come and go when’ere they please
Friends in all seasons


dVersepoetspub prompt is use the word visit. I love visitors and I love to visit. I guess that’s why I’m a caregiver. Visiting is my job. So many times just a visit, long or short, can change your life, and sometimes save your life.

    Oh how I’d love to have a snowbird visitor! It’s interesting….I just read your haibun again and I’m taken by a double meaning for “snowbird.” The feathered type….and the human type that resides in Florida in the winter and in a cooler place in the summer (New England?). Ah yes….I often say that to guests who stay with us for more than 1 day. First day, you’re a visitor….second day, you’re part of the family. Help yourselves to toast, coffee, cereal etc. We are sympatico in our thinking on that! Love the haiku.

    Nice celebration of a friendship with someone who moves to Florida when the seasons get cold. The haiku brings out the “bird” aspect of snowbird well.

  3. My aunt and uncle started out as snowbirds but then settled in Florida… I understand this happens a lot.
