Myth - OSI


One Single Impression says, 'Thanks to Mary at Answers to the Questions for this week's prompt, myth.'








icarus-like hawk
dives from a sunbound thermal
talons hook fresh prey

Oh, this gave me shivers. Well done - very visual. At least for me!

I have to admit I have to look up icarus, good descriptive words and usage

This is a scene I see almost daily along our river and your words have described it perfectly. Osprey!

I saw this happen once while eating at a restaurant across from a salt marsh. Very startling! You matched your myth well.

Beautifully done! Reminds me of our Red-Tailed hawks at the Swamp!

Sue,
Thank you for this.
Made me think of the hawk who frequents our neighborhood. I have named him "Kamikaze" for his reckless abandon and surrender to the dive. (and I fear for my dog).

I like the movement, it's a very dynamic haiku.

I could actually see the hawk doing that. I'm glad that I'm not the prey!

Those first two hyphenated words set the scene with a powerful force! Wonderful!
