One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

Oh, I love this one! Really gives me the image.

Enjoyed this one, as Gemma says, it really gives an image.

Sometimes people pack so much into a haiku it's hard to connect, but narrowing down onto a simple image pulls you in.

Thanks Gabriel!

Yes! This is one of those more minimalist haikus that allows your brain to soak up the picture given.
