Flitted and Flaked | Haiku

Good morning readers. Haiku today as follows…



Tractor-trod ridges

‘Round crow-flitted wheat stubble

And sun-bleached scarecrows.




Desultory lick

Along frail, white-flaked hawthorn.

Shivers blue, then out.


Thanks for reading, folks. Photo credits are ‘Wheat Fields’ by van Gogh and PxHere.

Not necessarily in that order.
