Haiku Heights: Hunter



Inspired by the theme at

Father and hunter
providing and protecting
keeping the child safe



Keeping the child safe
using ancient strength and skill
taking what they need

Taking what they need
an ever-lasting resource
hunt will never end

Hunt will never end
the family hunts together
 for generations
For generations
teaching wisdom and respect
hunter and Mother

  5. The Dad's role -
    Father and hunter
    providing and protecting
    keeping the child safe

    The Mum's role -
    teaching wisdom and respect
    hunter and Mother

    think we all have our fair share in both parts :-) - so liked this Sam, again with the repeated lines make it strong.
