MLMM Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille — HAWK


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


Perched, her red tail wags,

head swiveling to decide

which snow drift to glide.


Brown wings glide over

white drifts; talons clutch the hare;

sub-zero dinner.


Winter hawk calls in

the morning; there will be grief

in snowy kingdom.


Her sharp eyes see all,

and her strong talons serve her

life through the winter.


Hawk waits for me in

the leafless winter birch tree,

nodding as I pass.
