pine tops sway--
a shifting dazzle of sun
on the wet grass


—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.

    A lovely scene, Mike . . . I particularly like the phrase "a shifting dazzle of sun"!

    Hi Mike, everything in life changes and your haiku emphasizes both the flexibility of the pines and the beauty of the moment.
