One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

---Shiki

the branches are bare
the world grows smaller
without you

sweetly-scented leaf pile
even on the wind
your absence finds me

the season changes
this lingering stillness
remains

complete poem, though it is, too, three separete haiku-- love: "your absence finds me"..but more than that, the entire structure (for lack of a better word) has a songlike presence and supurb
completeness..>>spiros
