winter haiku d’hiver – great horned owl = grand duc d'Amérique 

great horned owl
eyes on the snow,
out on a limb *

* pun

great horned owl haiku

grand duc d'Amérique 
scrutant la neige,
royauté d’hiver 

Richard Vallance

The texts of the English and French haikus are entirely different, because it is impossible to render the pun “out on a limb” in French. Les textes des haikus en anglais et en français ne correspondent pas du tout, car il est impossible de traduire l'expression “out on a limb” en français.
