HAIKU

Chris Eichenberger

 

autumn sun --
a cat climbing through
the morning
 
   
  morning haze --
a ghost cat haunts
the biscuit bowl
   
even inside,
this autumn rain. . .
Chopin
 
   
  inky night --
the cattails dipped
in moon
 
into summer --
a box turtle carries a
painting of autumn
 
   

Chris Eichenberger Chris Eichenberger lives near Melbourne, Australia, with his wife Ayshea and an adopted stray cat. He studies physics and mathematics at Monash University, and also composes freeform electronic music. Eichenberger discovered the joy of haiku in mid-2005, and began writing soon after. Hiking and walking, especially in caves and other rocky places, are some of his other pastimes.
