Today is also ending--
at the bottom of the snowstorm
the gigantic sun



The Hunter.

brown-white wings beating
a barn owl hunting above
Orion looks on

'beside Orion
a barn Owl

Hi David,

Thanks for your comment. Being new to Haiku, I had not heard of Basho until this morning and therefore look forward to reading his work.

I was, however, reading the bible and came across this passage;

'What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.'
Ecclesesiates 1:9
