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

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.
