View From a Tropical Hospital


The View From a Tropical Hospital Room 1964
(written 1970) Found in an old notebook.

Emerald hills rise
From the indigo channel
Soaring hunters pass

This is one of my first attempts at Haiku. Don't laugh please, at least not too harshly. I had reason to visit someone at a convalescent hospital overlooking a channel between islands. The wind coming from the sea hit the hill on which the Hospital perched and caused an updraft that local hawks used to soar on, round and round, back and forth, 'till the dove into the jungle and sometimes arose again with a small rodent in their claws. I have an alternate version written a few years later.
