Daily Haiku, Cycle 13, Week 3, Haiku 3:
I wrote this haiku back before the red-tailed hawks in our area started nesting. Yesterday, I was regaled all afternoon by the cries of the hungry fledgling hawks in our neighbor’s tree. I saw an adult hawk take down a robin in our backyard last week, and while I understand that this is part of nature, I keep my toy poodle grandpuppy close by my side when I am out in the yard. I can’t believe the size of the adult hawks, when I see them up close. Haven’t spotted the babies yet, but I sure do hear them.
