quiet morning . . .
some of the fence
still standing

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.

    tsunami
    a wooden elephant's raised trunk
    amidst the debris

    night-storm passed, morning sun
    footsteps in the smooth new snow --
    cat and squirrel!

    -or-

    bright morning
    footsteps in new snow --
    cat and squirrel!

    quiet evening
    warmed by the fire --
    click of her key

    Beautiful!
    The silence that this haiku evokes is profound;
    I can almost hear/feel the wrath of a storm the night before, and the stillness and quiet of the morning after affects the senses with as great an impact. You are a keen observer...a gifted poet.

    Just wanted to say well done - simple, quiet, stark, evokative. Wish I'd written this one!

    quiet night--
    through the wintry blackness
    "somewhere down the crazy river"
