alone                            
learning stillness
from the sandstone

—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.

    Mike,
    _We can only hope our "take-a-pill" society can find the -sandstone's stillness- as you have so vividly presented!
    tnx _M

    Mike, moving lesson in the open air.
    Here is one of its echo:

    telling fortunes
    by means of a cowry shell-
    the quiet before the storm

    autumn quiet time-
    reflecting on the dregs
    in my cup
