One haiku, one tanka

May 23rd, 2011

Here’s an example of a haiku that I continued as a tanka. It’s also something I actually encountered during one of my evening walks.


pack of coyotes
yapping across the cornfield
police sirens


pack of coyotes
yapping across the cornfield
police sirens
and the scent of skunk
scar the moonlit night
