Grey Cloud Trail

lost eagle
tracks talon prints
on the grey cloud trail

on the grey cloud trail
between thunderclaps
murmuring wings

murmuring wings
in a flash of light
the colour of fear

the colour of fear
against the grey
lost eagle

April:#41- 28/30

  1. I like your chained haiku story .. the eagle hunts in all elements … is the eagle lost or has it wisely gone to its nest .. a question without an answer.


  2. These chain haiku not my favourite form, I’ll admit, but here polished off with style. I do sometimes wonder why people repeat their verses after the image, as I feel this lessens and even destroys the experience….just a heartfelt opinion…!

    1. Thank you Hamish. My understanding is that there are two reasons that make it practical – text embedded in the image doesn’t render well on some smaller devices and also is not accessible to screen reader software….suggestions / more info welcome.
