    Works for me as a poem, just curious if the minnow is a fishing lure, or the actual fish.
    Terrific haiku!

    A one-bun, a term created by Jim Kacian:

    Blackbird singing

    and a long long walk to be brain-tired out to avoid the internal black dog and survive each footfall at a time

    boys fishing
    a pointillism of raindrops
    dotting the river

    leaves begin to fall this face too evolves from fish

    __My inerudite echo._m
    Sunset; this mountain stream's minnow; stretched shadow.

    I had never heard of the term 'alpenglow' – what a beautiful word. I love how nature is embraced in this haiku, Bill.
