rock slide--        
a passing cloud leaves the sun 
where it was

—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.

    from wherever
    the winds are blown--
    the puffer fish


    issa's version

    "to wherever
    the wind may blow it...
    a pufferfish"

    night in Manhattan
    trusting the stars
    to be where they belong

    Gives a comforting sense of stability.

    earthquakes in the news
    the San Andreas
    dozing in the noonday sun

    not as evocative as yours, Mike, but there was a 5.2 in Northern California this morning as well as those the Indonesians have been suffering.

    dark clouds
    off in the distance
    heat lightning
