Anguished  Land

 

Shamans dressed in rabbit's fur and tanned buckskin call upon Mother Earth for healing; elderberry-stem flutes chant harmonious refrains. Robins, mockingbirds, and gray catbirds gather in birdsong, acid rain descends; the lone eagle cries in disbelief as Mother Earth thunders her answer.

 

Earthquake undulates

A slithering mating call

And swallows it's prey.

A Haibun is short very descriptive prose with a Haiku attached  to bring it all together
