haiku or pseudoku

So many anglophones have murdered haiku. There are specific 'rules' around it. I loath the murder of it, and try to follow the style. Forgive me for my sins!
No titles, they must contain nature images, seasonal references, and a twist at the end.
And on that note...
I know they are crows... but...
ravens land in skeletal trees
a chill foreshadows winter
wolves howl in the distance

yellow and black stripes
slither from under my feet
hawk flies above

forest calls in gentle dusk
Bambi's mother nibbles
wolves howl in the distance
