The Crow #haiku #poetry


kare eda ni karasu no tomarikeri aki no kure

on a bare branch
a crow has stopped
autumn dusk

~Basho

your cries fill the sky

leaves shudder from the chill

red and gold bonfires

fire

The bird that best represents autumn is the Crow today’s Carpe Diem prompt.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. __Moonie… Nifty! Crows are one of my favorite birds, such survivors. I refer to them as “street cleaners,” or “commuters” as they travel on to the next farm fields; your poem so fits, as around the camp-fire we sit. This, my old minded and humble echo… the harrow waiting to smoothen next spring’s pre-planting furrows .

    crows perch
    on an abandoned harrow
    this harvest
