Morning Snow

icy flakes flutter
feathering an eagle’s nest
early morning snow

My response to Carpe Diem Crossroads #12 young birds are raised

For this episode of Carpe Diem Crossroads we have two haiku written by Ryokan (1758-1831):

river in winter
soaring over peaks
an eagle spots its prey

hedge branches
young birds are raised
morning snow

The challenge is to create a so-called ‘fusion’ haiku from these haiku, creating a symbiosis between them.
