darkest night – senryū

 

 failing 

your failing breath
through a broken window
moon shadow
                    Rachel Sutcliffe

darkest night
like your breathing
lost moonlight

Rachel Sutcliffe, an accomplished and recognized haiku poet,
died this past week. My senryū is a response to
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #70: Rachel Sutcliffe,
which asks us to use one of Rachel’s poems as inspiration.
