(g) Game Sky (haibun Elfje) (9.1)

Game Sky
(haibun Elfje)

During my morning walk
I spy the hawk chasing
A vulture away.

I did not realize how much
Bigger the vulture was…
Out of the two birds of prey

There up on Pheasant Hill
I can only wonder if
Any pheasants remain…

*****
Who
Will dominate
The September sky?
Two vultures, one hawk –
Soar

Note: actually no pheasants remain because a few years back there was
an avian flu of some kind which more or less wiped them out. There are plenty
of small critters up in the woods on the hill – I’m sure enough for all the large birds…

Also note: I went and looked at silhouettes both birds and they don’t look all that different to me.
But the hawk seemed twice as small, maybe it was a juvenile.
