Written for:  Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #23, Crows


on a bare branch
a crow lands
autumn dusk

autumn departs
between bare branches
crows nest abandoned
after the cold dark winter
it will be inhabited again

Here is my attempt:

Eating crow
unfamiliar with saying,
a murder moves on

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
