micropoetry by david serjeant
I know chinooks as a special sort of helicopter. So to me your haiku is a very pointed remark about the relation between nature and man, strength and violence. Good one.Best wishesRalf
My first thought was: that's a bit of an odd winter kigo, especially for the UK. Then I realized you were talking about the man-made one. ...and then I heard the sound.
thanks for alerting me to the possible season-word confusion.Yes, I meant the double-rotor-bladed military helicopters. I often see them in pairs on manouvers.I guess, apart from the point Ralf raises, this poem is also about concealment, both aurally and visually. But as you don't see the chinooks until the last moment, it's a reminder that there are greater forces at work - the chaos of nature, if you like.
