young birds

Written for:  Carpe Diem Crossroads #12 – young birds are raised
“For this episode of Carpe Diem Crossroads I have another nice set of haiku for you to work with, but let me explain the task again for Crossroads. The task is to create a so called “fusion”-haiku from the given haiku. With that task you create a symbiosis bewteen the two haiku. Every set of haiku used here in Crossroads are always by the same haiku poet, because I don’t think it’s possible to create a “fusion”-haiku from two haiku by two different haiku poets.”

Here are the two haiku to work with and create your “fusion”-haiku:

river in winter
soaring over peaks
an eagle spots its prey

hedge branches
young birds are raised
morning snow

© Ryokan

first snow falls
old birds nest covered with a blanket
the eagle without vision

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

spotted by eagles
young birds in hedge branches
peeping from under snow

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.
