Quiet Haiku

( renga with linked haiku )
 
   
🐅      
a tapir stays low   
holds its breath in the stillness    
—motionless tiger      
       
🐊      
a crocodile slips      
soundless into the river      
—startled cranes flying   
       
🌌      
from steamy night’s heat      
a full moon shimmers brightly  
—the sleeping village

Author's Note
Renga also consists of linked Tanka, with as few as two, or hundreds.

•The tapir is a large, herbivorous mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile nose trunk.
