cleaning my rifle--
my dog's ears
uplifted

    home through the rain--
    a buck we never saw
    jumps the fence

    deer in road
    pausing to gaze at headlights
    sauters across

    loved your haiku Tim and for a sentimentalist like me (uncomfortable with hunting and guns) that's pretty remarkable! thanks

    I love your ku... one of the most beautiful haiku of the last months in my humble opinion...

    Well done Tim, this sporting dog's excitement! And on the other side:

    cleaning
    the refrigerator
    my dog lifts its head

    Driving home,
    aghast, I see hanging from my neighbor's tree,
    a dead deer.


    Even though I can rationalize, I cannot quiet my heart.

    Tim,
    Good haiku! That's a lot of places to be published in! (Do all these countries have companies that publish haiku)?
    Sincerely,
    David Fox

    dust thickens
    over barrel's bluing--
    hound bays at the moon
