mysterious crossing


Shiki, one of the Big Five haiku poets, wrote this in classical style:


when I looked back,
the man who passed
was lost in the mist

© Masaoka Shiki


his haunting haiku inspires my attempt as follows:


glance out my window

cloud wisps pass before half moon

glimpse coyote shadows

    Interesting that you mentioned coyote shadows. I have been hearing coyotes a few times in the middle of the night. Eerie.
