Writing My First Haiku Poem

Haiku

We live along side a dairy farm. Have, for the past forty years. On the last day of the year, the youngest of two aging Brothers was killed, when cutting down a tree went awry. The landscape has been empty.
:(


The empty landscape

drifting lazily along

Minus Calvin's tracks.

Thanks, everyone, for your kind replies. Here is a picture of Calvin a couple years ago, after a July storm came through.

Aww, such a void, but he left a plot of God's creation a better place and cared for it as God intended. He left you a nice view. Your poem is poignant and with only 17 syllables in true Haiku form. Well penned my friend.
