silent (pause) paws

 

shadowed rabbit tracks

blue moon illuminates snow

coyote’s eerie howl

 

keen nose follows scent of prey

end is mercifully swift

 


Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai invites us to find a haiku from our archives and re-write it. I decided to post a haiku I submitted to a poetry contest last year…and make it a tanka.  Death is part of life in our natural world.
