the white blossoms drop
as rainy season deepens -
yellowed the leaves too

if foxes could write
surely then would be their choice
feathers to quill haunts

teeth clasped feather
there is a hunger for more
daylight progresses

daylight
the one that got away
or the one eaten

always in the wild
with the catch of predators
unanswered questions

The predator and the prey and the one that got a way. I imagine that fox would have a
lot to say.

Happy Sunday!

I'm loving my visits to your Sunday Smiles. (Especially love the Psalms scripture).

Sherry Blue Sky said...

And if foxes could speak, I wonder what they'd say? Lovely, Gillena.

Your first haiku reads like a glimpse of fall. In the case of my bit of the world, without the rain. Still, the blossoms are falling and the leaves are yellowing.

Hope all is well with you, Gillena.

Wonderful intermingling of white blossoms dropping with the rain - as white blossoms are often a metaphor for youth and purity and rain is often a metaphor for hard times ... The message being, of course, that all actions are connected, in one way or another. A very profound and nuanced haiku, Gillena.

The fox no doubt returns home feather in mouth and explains "I nearly got it!"
