Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge – #Haiku with a twist – by Sally Cronin

This week in the challenge, Colleen Chesebro has offered us the chance to create our own form of syllabic poetry...Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge 232 – specific form

Here is my take on the challenge a Sanhaiku.… (San being the Japanese for three) I am sure there is an official name for it…

a sudden silence
descends upon the garden
as birds cease to sing
a flutter of wings
heralds the arrival of death
to sparrows who stir
nature holds its breath
as the hawk enjoys his game
deadly hide and seek.
