The snake crawled fearfully over the railings and the walls. All creatures were hostile to him and he feared their fear. Then, he felt his beloved tree and leapt over it effortlessly. The king had reached his state at last. The tree relaxed and the snake nestled in the warmth.

Destination bound..

restless fear follows

his every movement

  1. And you see all those trees in the background? He was leaping all over those too.
    Slight correction: The snake catcher informed us that he was a she. πŸ™‚

    So happy you found a photo to give you a wonderful post for a ligo haibun. I first read that as HaiRbun. lol

  2. Your rhythmic flow is spectacular here Nightlake. your words matching the movement and feelings a snake might indeed have. Excellent haiku as a close, so very well done!

  3. I like the king has reached his state – and the tree relaxed – I love that -particularly the idea that the tree relaxed. Restless fear follows his every movement – indeed. I feel bad for them, killed out of fear. Very nice feeling to it all.
