talons grasping prey

talons grasping prey

talons grasping prey
eagle rises from river
snow quietly falls

This fusion haiku is my response to Carpe Diem’s Crossroads #12 “young birds are raised”
inspired by the words in the following two haiku by Ryokan.

river in winter
soaring over peaks
an eagle spots its prey

hedge branches
young birds are raised
morning snow

               Ryokan (1758-1831)
