the fall

weightless red wings soared
a thousand sacred rhythms
death by shattered skies

Beautiful write, Phil. The bird thing is strange, don't you think? Kinda Hitchcock-ish.

like vagrant hailstones
hurled by angry goddesses—
five thousand blackbirds

Dramatic picture, and your haiku is such a compliment to it too.

All the best, Boonie

Exquisite image - words reflecting the sad mystery - but Magical Mystical Teacher has the best comment.

It is an amazing image and the verse is striking and mystical. I love the "sacred rhythms" piece and "death by shattered skies". I think that it shows the connection between death and the natural world.
