Frank J Tassone Haikai Challenge #17 Raven – Haibun

Frank say’s write the haiku poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, tanka, haibun, renga/renku, haiga, etc.) in which you name or reference Raven.

The Common Raven is a Northern Hemisphere bird.

There are many species and can live some twenty odd years in the wild.

The New Zealand Raven has been extinct since the 16th century, so I have not had the pleasure of ever seeing one.

known to be pests
are very intelligent
mimic many sounds

I haven’t been writing for a few days, the weather in New Zealand has been very hot and exhausting to an old body. Cheers happy days.
