Haiku: After the Sun Sets


The experts are calling for severe winter weather to hammer much of the United States this weekend. To boost morale, I thought I’d post a haiku I wrote last summer on an absolutely beautiful night. I took the picture at a clearing overlooking one of my favorite fishing spots on Lake Erie.
