Five Haikus About Seeing a Snow Leopard and a Seven Syllable Line

Travel many miles

to view leopard in the snow.

It must move to see.

 

Travel many miles

to view leopard in the snow.

Maybe let it be.

 

Travel many miles

to view leopard in the snow.

It moves. Did they see?

 

Leopard’s eyes shone blue,

steely, cold with black center.

View was ecstasy.

 

Leopard’s head turns back.

Piercing eyes vanish again.

The mountain turns white.

 

That would have been nice to see.
