high country morning—
through a cleft in the stone wall
the scent of campfires

  1. Great shot. teacherman. My kind of landscape. Well, maybe a few mountains would be nice.

    BTW, Our KP did have a combo, going away and early birthday party with her kid friends before she left.

  21. Fun – when I think of a cleft I too think of faces because I know a few gents with ‘holes’ in their chins. 🙂
    Lovely view.

  22. A beautiful haiku it triggers memories of camping festivals when I was younger … I was once a scout and we were camping on a regular base … at least three times a year. That sweet scent of campfires … delicieux!

  23. Great haiku, I can smell the aroma of campfires.

  24. I would move slowly to the edge and take a peek out. 🙂
