#Haiku Happenings #8: Merril’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!
Vincent van Gogh, “Wheatfield with Crows,” [Public Domain] Wikipedia Commons
crow calls, beckoning,
rosy-robed sun arises,
new day awakens
with murdered conversation,
echoes in black-winged flutter
I’m still waiting for the sun to rise. This tanka is for Frank’s Hakai challenge (crow) and Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. And another van Gogh–because you can feel the movement and hear the echoes in this one.
