sleeping cat--
a soft curl of fog
over the ridgetop

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.

    mike,
    your poms are consistently the best
    showcased on this site. this piece
    is as close to perfect as a haiku
    can get.

    harvest season...
    the cat behind a tree
    behind the coop

    soft mass of flesh
    pressing 'gainst my arm--
    dawn awakening
