taste of silence

the day melts to orange...
gaunt pines climb the ridge
to jab invulnerable clouds

rock formations are
mauve and rust-red in twilight
deep jagged chasms

a meadow turns pink
as  evening nibbles at stars
a taste of silence

    Carrie,.......i am no critic of haikus....i dont understand them at all...........the poem is no doubt a good haiku, but I particularly like the language (evening nibbles at stars, taste of silence, jab invulnerable clouds) and its highly original and evocative personification .....it deserves top place for the choice of language alone .....i send you my very best wishes for a high place in this contest.....Syd
