haiku

the fish eagle soars
above the still blue lake -
light fades to dusk.


This is my second poem for this week's Read Write Poem prompt which suggests using any form of poetry to rework another poem in another form. This haiku uses the six repeated words from yesterday's sestina to recreate part of the scene of that sestina.

Gets a lot of the essence, doesn't it.

What a fantastic portrait in words. I can see it! A joy to read your work again.

This carries the weight of that cyclical movement in the other poem. Well done.

This is a lovely, lean distillation of the sestina.
