December Haiku Share

Red-tailed hawks are a common sight around these parts, although I actually wrote this haiku when I was visiting Arizona two summers ago. This haiku combines two of my favorite subjects: hawks and clouds. It is also a hay(na)ku– a poetry form having three lines, consisting of one, two, and three words respectively. So share a haiku about hawks, other raptors, air currents, clouds, and/or try your hand at a hay(na)ku.
