The eagle has a reputation for seeing so much and they are clever and intuitive birds and I enjoyed your Haiku about them, good luck with the contest, love Dolly x

"Eagle sat thinking", is short, succinct and very much to the point. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. I look forward to seeing your next post.

Loved the illustration and I do like eagles - we have many where we live. As I understand the haiku, I sense it's the eagle that has taken a resolve to face the storm whereas the other birds were too "chicken" (pardon the bird joke.) It's a good message for us to be noble and brave like the eagle.
There are many rules to haiku that I haven't fully mastered but I can recommend reading Gloria's notes in her post: https://www.fanstory.com/displaystory.jsp?id=969391

I think you do have elements of the kigo (the seasonal reference in your storm) and the satori ending can be found there.

This isn't really about birds, is it? I don't think eagles can fly that high. I'm not sure I totally understand it, but I think it's about rising above the 'storm.' Good luck in the contest.

Hello, Sanku,

575
The first two lines connect grammatically.
the satori is okay. The presentation is nice but the font is hard to read. I would make it bigger and white. I wish you good luck in the contest.

Yeah, I like that. Why fear the storm and turn back when you can soar high above it, looking down at it. I believe that this is what that majestic bird would do. I love the message of this and enjoyed reading this well written work. Well done!

Thank you for sharing this haiku. I was told recently by a publisher than English haiku do not follow the 5-7-5 syllable format. That is not what I was taught. Anyhow, it appears this poem has the correct conventional number of syllables. Good luck with your contest entry!

A very well-written haiku about the birds struggling to fly away from the storm while the eagle watching them he sat and thinks that he will fly above the storm.
