how tenderly
the hawk feeds her young -
who are we to say

autumn melancholy--
the shadow connects
the trees

I love this page, Don.
well done.

Reading Padhy's haiku I was reminded of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, who said, "You may call a tree a standing man, and a man a walking tree,”

Ultimately the oneness of all things

Thank you so much, Kala - the ultimate goal (and ground of being), the oneness of all.

The predatory hawk caught in a tender moment is a stirring image.
