storm ripped him from branch
but gave him wings to soar, then
softly laid to sleep

Sharmistha is a prolific poet with many collections. Her latest project is a magazine called agnishatdalezine.
I liked the contrasting beginning and end and the perpetual motion in the haiku.
This haiku is part of my LEAF series.
