moon shadows--
the elk herd bedded down
by the highway


—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.

    I enjoyed reading "Moon Shadows." I didn't know haiku was so popular in the U.S. I love the form.

    I liked it a lot. It was like a good photograph, clear and moving.

    harvest moon...
    even the bat shadow
    seems to be in flight

    full moon
    the black water
    of an ice fishing hole

    full moon
    brightens this autumn night--
    mind shadows
