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.
sing it loud and clear
rejoice, bring peace to the world
embrace your blessings

magic is an illusion
but there’s always hope
The above poem is Senryu Poetry, not a Haiku poem.
Here is an in-depth description of Haiku – Senryu (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge – 126 – Pet & Play
Last Sunday I spend some family time at the Brooklands Zoo in New Plymouth NZ.
It was my youngest great-grandson 1st birthday, we had a wonderful time, the animals were the highlight of the visit for many but to me, it made a perfect day, as I had not been to the zoo for many years.
This photo was taken with my cell phone of the monkeys, so “Ronovan Haiku Poetry Challenge”, with the prompt “Pet & Play” is a wonderful opportunity to share a photo of a day I will never forget.
Brooklands Zoo Haiku
wild animals play
but never pet a monkey
just look and adore
