Haiku challenge: Super & Strange

For Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge. I have used super in the Latin sense of above, and unexpected for strange. The form is gogyohka, a new one to me, like a tanka but without the syllable restrictions, one phrase per line.


crow wings stretch

above the red sunset glow

unexpected messengers

from beyond the horizon

from beyond this world

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

        Had N.I not ever said that my former Latin teacher had called me a “poet” because I was so creative in translating. 🙂
