Years ago, I had a haiku book, and remember this poem. When the snake flees The eyes that glare at me Remain in the grass. Wish i could find that book! Also How white the peonies When I open my eyes And see

I like short poems, this one is also very nice. There always remains the final predator. The story of snake ended, but eagle...

The imagery is so discerning and the words are so powerful that the entire sequence comes alive before us like a video film. Thanks, Kok Yee.

I LIKE THIS ONE TOO! welcome to PoemHunter! ! ;) bri nice photo! (Kim Barney is another fine PH poet who shares 'cool' photos) . ===================================== an offering from Bri: Morning Alarm has gone off I turn over in the bed What a sleepy head! (October 12,2015) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - as i wished to check on Haiku form, i Googled and found this: Traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression. Haiku began in thirteenth-century Japan as the opening phrase of renga, an oral poem, generally 100 stanzas long, which was also composed syllabically. The much shorter haiku broke away from renga in the sixteenth-century, and was mastered a century later by Matsuo Basho, who wrote this classic haiku: An old pond! A frog jumps in— the sound of water. [ a coincidence? an inspiration? ] I won’t be trying any “renga” any time soon! this will also go to MyPoemList. :) bri
