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.

Questions for a Silhouette

Questions for a Silhouette

Do the answers to life’s
imperceptible fade
lie in your eyes?

Tell me, if you know.
On the edge of this coming
darkness, will we be reunited?

I know the night is
unending, but their presence
would be a comfort.

And those left behind
in the light, will I see them
in their darkness?

Do you know?

This is my response to Thursday Photo Prompt – Crow #writephoto, by Sue Vincent at Daily Echo, with her photo.
