let the ravens come
let them smile as they pick the flesh
from the battlefield
whisper to you?

this smiling raven poem is quite possibly the most powerful thing I’ve read in the haiku genre. will try to answer re carpe diem. doubt i’ll get anywhere close.
Beautiful words – sorry about the delay in replies. I saw some wonderful tan renga built around the haiku I must say, am getting comments to all.
haven’t written it yet!

Very nice set of haiku … that first is really my favorite and I love to use it for one of our Tan Renga Challenges …
The first one is deeply profound. And the second one has a touch of the romantic. Well done dearest ‘enemy’!
