honeysuckle--
even the word
sounds delicious


—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.

    Language as object of perception. First rate, Mike.

    Delicious and senuous too. Beautiful haiku, Mike.


    honeysuckle-
    growing on her side
    of the fence, too

    this is so brilliant
    it glows
    with its own fragrance

    suckling's tiny pale hands 'longside*
    tan line

    Lovely image!

    fragrance of honeysuckle
    starry June night
    dew between my toes

    reminds me
    of a honeysuckle vine
    I used to know

    thanks!
