Hardened lava flow, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, Northern Arizona

When the ravens cry,
lava hardens into stone—
wings fall from the gnat.

  2. The green pine and blue sky …..perfect framing…….I’m there… almost…..if only I could catch a whiff of the pine! What an eye you have, Teacher….you see with the eyes of the heart! Thank you for sharing.

  3. Transformation… sometimes I am that gnat and sometimes that lava… today I believe I am that raven cry…

  4. very creative and contemplative haiku and lovely photo for HMH ~ xoxo

  5. the piercing cry of that raven in the wilderness caught me, you have introduced sound and taken us a level higher in your haiku appreciation. Have a nice Friday

    much love…

  6. Can’t express how this penetrates my soul.

  7. ‘Caw caw’, stone hardens, gnats grounded.

  8. So provoking, divine!

  9. I see Yul Brynner in the wingless gnat. My weird imagination….

  10. so many unexpected things happen when the raven sings, i’ve been listening all day.

      And don’t you sometimes wish that the raven would just shut up for a while? I know I do! 😉
