clearing fog--
reds, yellows and blues
dot the sled hill

—Mike Farley
        

About the author: I live with my wife Shirlee on a cattle ranch near the little ski town of Red Lodge, Montana, and have been loving and writing haiku for several years now. I draw my inspiration from the images of the high-plains, mountains, weather, wildlife, livestock, ranch work and outdoor recreation which surround me daily.

    it was a good poem but it was hard to understand.
    the different colors of the fog was a good detail of the poem.

    skiers on the hill
    colorful apparitions
    peering through the fog

    steam rising
    from Lake Michigan
    eastern sky

    cool dreary day
    continuing to bloom --
    the bougainvillaeas

    Really enjoyed "clearing fog," Mike. Very nice!

    rolling fog---
    a colony of gulls
    haunting the breakwater

    upon the lake
    lone boater rows on ...

    breath of spring
    hyacinths blooming
    in grocery stores

    the red sky
    which it had been
    before the white-white snow

    absence
    of water-sounds
    the icebergs

    ta'neisha, you've given me a new read; rather late, yet better than never. wondering what gave the fog it's hues.


    -

    those reds, the pinks, the orange
    these bougainvillaeas i love best--
    snowcone white

    -

    wondering how orange(s) would
    have worked? and why i always think of the cone in snowcone white?
