Landscape


sparks from embers fly
above the tattered landscape
howls rise on the wind

  1. I was going to ask how you were doing, but this does not sound like the haiku of a woman whose body is treating her kindly. It is excellent, but it is as harsh as the lazy winds which spear through you in winter.

  5. So evocative. Would a torrential downpour clear the smoldering fire? Or would a soft misty rainfall be better? I am just not sure any of those would quiet the howl, eh?

  8. I want to reiterate what Elephant's Child had to say...the haiku speaks to me of both warmth and cold...and I thought of Dr. Zhivago of all things!

  14. Wow. I love this. You create an vivid picture, tugging at our imagination to fill in more and know more about it. Great job!
