crow on branch

Chevrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai offers us a beautiful haiku by renowned Japanese poet Matsuo Basho to “photoshop” (tweak) a little. Here’s my attempt:

 

kare eda ni karasu no tomarikeri aki no kure

on a bare branch
a crow has stopped
autumn dusk

© Basho (Tr. Stephen Wolfe)

bare tree branch sways with

dark crow’s weighty silhouette

autumn flies away
