    prairie sunset
    the glow of the cattleman's
    branding iron
    still warm
    the coffee now bitter
    cold descends
    stoking the fire
    beans and bacon
    morning comes
    too soon....

    this is a perfect haiku in my opinion.
    cinematic & perfectly juxtaposed

    Ditto cinematic - but nonetheless 'real'. Great stuff.

    Ditto cinematic and good, like the movie western versions of movies like the 7 samurai.

    Cinematic, dramatic, but not in the least overstated. A Markowski gem.

    Not bad
    this haiku,
    but I have seen better.

    smoke from the fire
    snaking cross the glades--
    this glowing sunset

    Ed, You've teased all my senses... either directly or subliminally!

    sunset
    blankets this lowing herd
    campfires mime

    Nice haiku. Sunset is time rich indeed of great views to write about.
