the brittle call
of a skylark –
still no rain

    Really appreciate the word "brittle."

    seed parachutes
    onto unwatered ground—
    a fruitless journey

    Your haiku, Vincent, generated another look within that hopeful sky _m

    the hawk soars
    below this skyborn gate
    a rain cloud

    The word 'brittle' is an excellent choice to echo the dry season or drought, a really lovely haiku.

    black cockatoos
    coming down from the hills
    unseasonal rain
