Bats come out to play
After the lights go down low
Wolves howl in the night

The roar of falling water
Moisture everywhere

Graceful leaves fallen

Hideaway canyons
We’ll split up and search each one
Looking for hoof prints


On this day, 9/6/07, my first effort to post a photo/haiku was made. 
5 years and 1900 or so posts later; 
it's been a challenge and fun all the way.
Thank you for watching.

Pave our meeting place

Harkens to the olden days
When the rush was on

Ripples, not yet made fossils
By time and pressure
