Disguise Haiku




***

outsize eye tattoos
warn off nearing predators
wings of jezebel

***

black nose, spots of pink
white fur glistens in the snow
hungry polar bear

***

brown river creates
ripples around a faux log
cranky crocodile

I like the idea of using camo to inspire this verse! The cranky croc made me hoot. Great.
