Haiku (Warmth of Summer's Green)

by Just2Write

Warmth of summer's green
is mirrored in cool lagoon -
lynx has made his bed

stalks of grass trampled
beneath oak's refuge.
Today's hunt is done.

Broken eggshells speak
to life's eternal cycle;
contented cat purrs.

Robbed of unborn chicks
frantic caws begin to fade;
fear diminishes.

Calmer now - crows wait
safe within Peach tree's branches,
gentle breeze consoles.

Buzzing flies and bees
hum song of serenity.
Peace returns at last.

Heron's watchful eyes
keep vigil in the forest;
Lynx is now asleep.


My thanks for the use of the beautiful graphic:
beauty at its best by Breanna M McKelvey on

While walking on a path called Peach Creek Trail a couple of summers ago, I spotted a Lynx stealing eggs from the crows. The crows were frantic -but soon after the deed was done - the crows and the lynx carried on as though nothing had happened.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
