gogyohka for wind-hawk

For Frank Tassone’s haikai challenge, a gogyohka


I can see the wind

it swoops and glides

slides silent and feathered

grips sharp-beaked and taloned

its name is hawk

  1. You bring out the hawk’s lithesome and perilous (“sharp-beaked”) qualities. I’m happy you get to see hawks to behold them, express them. I see a hawk on occasion, always a surprise and a delight.
