silver flash in stream


silver flash in stream
eagle strikes from lofty height
ripples slowly fade

During Carpe Diem’s December 2016 Let the Music Inspire You, Kristjaan introduced me to some new (to me) composers.  This haiku is inspired by Oltra Mar, by Kaija Saariaho.

    • Thank you.
      The music was on an early list of prompts for the month and I wrote the haiku before the prompt was changed. It’s not a piece I would listen to very often. It’s rather dark and many of the movements rely on a choir.
