Frank say’s write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, tanka, haibun, renga/renku, haiga, etc.) in which you name or reference Hawk.
Sad to say we don’t see many New Zealand Hawks. Living on the farm in Okoki you would see them occasionally circling around the ranges looking for food, then along would come a half-a-dozen Magpies attacking them, the hawk would try to fly away, many times the magpies would bring them down.
walking around bush
there on the ground a dead hawk
magpies won again
