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.

  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
