Haiku

Haiku

My first three attempts at Haiku –

A falcon flies fast
In a line above the ground
And swoops on its prey.
*
Bees buzz in a swarm
High among the tree branches
Gathering nectar.
*
Grey clouds in the sky,
Heavy-laden with water –
Rain falls on dry earth.

The Hunter

 

THE HUNTER

 

The branch reaches down towards the stream,

Cool, clear and translucent.

All is silent save for gurgling and soft splashing

As the wavelets pass obstacles in their course.

A peaceful, serene and tranquil scene.

 

A flash of red, a dash of green,

A streak of colour, bright as paint,

A bird alights back on the branch,

Water dripping from his wings.

And in his beak a small fish wriggles.

 

With a stretch of his neck, the fish has gone,

Swallowed whole, while the bird sits still,

Motionless, as the keen eyes scan the water.

A frozen image of a hunter seeking out his prey

While the fish, unaware, continue to play.
