MLMM Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille — HAWK

hawk

This week’s Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille has the inspirational prompt of hawk.

i

Perched, her red tail wags,

head swiveling to decide

which snow drift to glide.

ii

Brown wings glide over

white drifts; talons clutch the hare;

sub-zero dinner.

iii

Winter hawk calls in

the morning; there will be grief

in snowy kingdom.

iv

Her sharp eyes see all,

and her strong talons serve her

life through the winter.

v

Hawk waits for me in

the leafless winter birch tree,

nodding as I pass.
