haiku - warning

storm dark skies -
a raven's loud croak
from the tower.

warning for Mad Kane's Haiku Prompt. Inspired partly by Mad's own haiku and partly by the ravens at the Kitchener Memorial in Orkney

Janice Thomson said...

I love this - it reminds of the crow who announces my presence every single time I go to the forest - you'd think he'd know me by now :)

Ooh, I hope we don't hear a knocking at the chamber door.
