Many a bird of Prey will await and take their opportunities to survive. Us humans will do this, for the sake of it. This act, lowers us down the species list, where we belong. <*> Images of reality emit strongly in this short poetic piece Kim, many congratulations are in order. Have a most lovely weekend :) xx

Kim, thank you for your very good haiku entered my contest. Competition was stiff, and on another day, this could have been number one. I look forward to seeing many more of your poems.

It is fun to see all these "moment's captured by haiku. Was the tiny dog the prey? or was he just barking at what was happening?
