Haiku Bones and Shadow Shot Sunday


No bamboo sprouts here
among desert stones and bones—
brittlebush blooming.

Shadows in the wash
flood over stone and flower—
deluge of darkness.

  1. Nice nature sketch. This week I have gone for a one as a simile. My Haiku is here

  2. Love your desert flowers and stone shadows!


  3. very nice, like the 2nd one best.

  4. I didn’t know that in the desert there are a lot of beautiful flowers lurking. The yellow one is an awesome sight. Happy Sunday!

  5. I really like this one—lots of nice contrasts here. (And thanks for the heartfelt haiku left chez moi.)

  6. out in the desert
    no bamboo sprouts in the dry
    lots of yellow flowers

    Jim’s Haiku Bones is here

  7. You used alliteration really beautifully here.

  8. The taller it grows, the more water it needs.

  9. love these flowers, so bright against the more subtle beauty of the desert.

  10. This would also do for MYM! Thanks for your visit.

  11. Visual and stunning as a physical and emotional landscape.

  12. What stunning yellow blossoms in your desert landscape! It’s been almost a month since I’ve opened my reader so I’m doing what I can to catch up today. Loved your yellow tug boat, the ‘artsy’ watery view of the fishing boats, and the curious squirrels along with your wonderful poetry. Catching up on 59 posts may take me a while 😉
    Hugs and blessings,
