winter storm rages

winter storm rageswinter storm rages
crow takes flight from howling wind
leaving leafless trees
a lone crow circles
a tempest tipping its wings
leafless branches sway

I have created two different “fusion” haiku for the challenge at
Carpe Diem’s Crossroads #6 A Leafless Tree,
inspired by the words in the following two haiku by Soseki Natsume.

the crow has flown away:
swaying in the evening sun,
a leafless tree.

over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.
