Fragmented Heart – CD Special

 

Carpe Diem Special Challenge:
Compose an all new haiku in the same spirit as Shiba Sonome’s “longing for someone”

longing for someone
I sit by the gate and draw
eyebrows on a melon

~~~~~~~~~~~

fragmented heart
silhouetted in moonlight
haunting screech owl calls

    The lonely heart beats
    In cadence with the one need
    Waiting on the song

      In the 20+ yrs I have lived here — I have heard this type of owl one period over two evenings — it was the most eerie sound I’ve ever experienced … I was alone, my husband was somewhere — I froze initially because I didn’t know what it was. Turned all sounds off in the house — then figured it was in the front of our home. Took a flashlight — and finally discovered it deep within the branches of our 100+ yr oak. Heard it the next night. Have not heard it since. Don’t know why it is called a screech owl — but the sound is memorable and haunting.

    Those heart fragments might be attractive to the hunting owl (although I hope not).
