dark, raven, scavengers, war
Carpe Diem Prompt Raven. My haiku today is a bit dark. But realistic I dare say. 🙂
darkness sheaths the skies
flapping wings create death dance
we scavenge the spoilsCopyright © Celestine Nudanu (13/05/14) I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom

The hair in the back of my neck is standing! This one is terrifyingly, deliciously dark!
Oh Parmis, thank you. 🙂 I could think of no other words when I saw the prompt!
….or just steel your pretty baubles 🙂
🙂 That’s another way of looking at it Jules. 🙂

Absolutely right. Dark but realistic. Good work. The crows scavenge the battle fields.

Never mind, Celestine, more sinister activities takes place in the absence of light!

Brooding, I like your range of writing styles from light, to sensual to dark…I never know what you will write and that is one of the joys of coming here.
Ste J, your compliment means a lot to me! 🙂 I thank you!
I think that’s what poets must do: scavenge spoils.
I like that. 🙂
Great haiku … darkness as meant in your haiku is also part of life, part of nature, and so it’s also part of haiku. Well done.
PS. I like your new lay-out!
Oh, I’m still experimenting and may change this one soon! 🙂
Thank you Kristjaan. 🙂
