frosty morning--
the foal watches its mother
nudge my pocket



—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 like it. It's cold, but the foal is conscious and You are conscious.

    Mike, I like this_!
    _Sure it's frosty... but too, I see the foal learning and categorizing by watching mom's nudge.

    a very "yes" haiku... lovely to be sure, and a moment-of-the-moment truth which leaves us an inner warmth regardless of the cold exterior...

    spilling branch to branch
    a feathering of snowflakes...
    the jays in a snit

    fading twilight-
    yet, her clear eyes
    after 50 years
    still sparkle

    Mike, there's something so warm
    and real about this moment...you've
    captured it beautifully!
