Haikai Challenge #18 Crow

#Haikai Challenge #18 (1/27/18): Raven #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #renga #haiga
across the snowy field
the sound of a lone crow floats –
coldness overwhelms

silent neighborhood –
distant crows break the silence –
cold and still today

    If I step outside right now I’m almost sure I could hear a crow break the silence. They are so powerful and they caws do communicate.

    I like your contrast of black and white, hoarse cry and silence.

    Last eve at dusk driving, as hundreds of crows settled… Like Hitchcock’s the birds…
    though noiselessly ominous they were.

    I’ve two this week:
    ego, id, superego; raven
    The later is three separate verse – visit either or both 🙂

    I like the spareness of these–like a cold winter morning.
