Haiku challenge: Fast & Lane

For Ronovan’s weekly challenge.

Dec sunset


how quickly

night falls in the dark lane

where shadows grow

folding wings spreading wings

feet pad between dusk and dawn


Tanka Tuesday: Hunt & Find

I finally caught sight of a couple of deer down by the stream. They crossed to our side and ran through the trees to where next door’s meadow begins. A tanka for Colleen’s Tuesday challenge.


Through the trees, deer leap,

red light in green shade flickers,

then in silence, gone.

I search the still branches, find

memories of wild beauty.
