One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

I wrote this haiku a year ago and I still like it. It has something to do with Macbeth's words as he faces the end (Act V, Scene 3):

I have lived long enough: my way of life
Is fallen into the sere, the yellow leaf

Thanks for the note here, it's great when there's a footnote to enjoy too! ;-)
