between the cold of
late autumn and the warmth of
early winter = leaves
cling to the branches – a crow
caws and no bird answers

Haikai Challenge #17: Hawk

cold misty dawn – hawk
flies silently overhead
black against grey sky

 

For Frank Tassone’s Saturday Haikai Challenge #17 using the kigo, hawk.  #Haikai Challenge #17 (1/20/18): hawk #haiku #senryu #tanka #haibun #renga #haiga

 

寒雀

Kansuzume perched
On wall, fluff feathers for warmth.
Cold rain falls. They watch.
