Haiku Challenge (Nature)

feather powered flight
soaring through the moonlit night
talons muffle scream

one ends, the other endures
survival gives no quarter

A Prairie Rose


Live life like a prairie rose,
Thriving in the roadside stones.
Cast away in your own paradise,
Fighting countless unknowns.

Sharing your beauty and splendor
With whatever happens along.
A solo act in nature,
Like a descant in a song.

How brief your role in nature,
Spectacular in our sight.
You’re just one part of creation,
Outstanding in the light.
