Cold coyote winds
howl across my resting place—
can I be reborn?

  1. Well now, a photo of a place I can get to without a passport. Cool. Good visual you create with your words, and you didn’t even need a photo to create it. Nice job.


  2. yes, i believe you can. great haiku mmt.

  3. Yes, you can indeed! Beautiful post and shadow shot for the day and beautiful haiku as always! Wishing you a Blessed and Happy Easter Weekend!


  4. oh this is a beautiful photo. I’m loving the color and feel of it. your haiku is haunting. happy SSS, and have a great weekend.

  5. The place of sadness is reinforced by the cool winds. Yet, the pastel fence and added flowers add some warmth and hope to a desolate desert burial ground. A poignant capture…

  6. I think the answer is no if there’s a yellow fence around your spirit. Blue, yes, but not yellow.

  7. nice find! and lovely haiku, as usual 🙂

  8. Such color in the the photo, such life in the words! And I finally caught sight of the angel.

  9. Oooh, “cold coyote winds” is so expressive! What a wonderful, colorful shadow shot.

  11. spooky i say.. not the photo though 😛

  12. Wow, lovely photo and verse…

  13. It’s so odd to see cemetaries out west with no trees or grass! Love the yellow of the fence against the desert ground….brings a bit of happiness to the grave. Have a lovley weekend!

  14. Interesting to see a bright yellow picket fence round a resting place! Lovely perspective in the photo looking from a place of rest out to the sands!

  15. This evening when the coyotes howl outside my window I will think of this resting place, it gives me shivers thinking about it.

  16. What a wonderful picture to go with a great haiku!

  17. That’s perfect for all the memes!

  18. Simply beautiful!

    I know those coyote winds…lived in St.Johns for over a year (that seemed like 10!) back in the early 80’s. This ShadowShot really captures the feel of the place!! I DO believe you can be born again!!! Yippee. Happy Easter to you.

  23. Beautiful words to go with an equally beautiful shadow photo.
    Happy Easter.

  24. I love photographing cemetaries, but this is the most unusual one that I have ever seen.Great shot.

  25. I have never seen a cementery like this before.
    Very neat shot, and words.

  26. Cool shot…happy SSS!

  27. Love the yellow fence!! Eastern fence!!

  28. How lovely to brighten up things by painting the little fence yellow!!

  29. Interesting photo. Everything looks windy and gray except for the beautifully coloured gravesite you captured.

  30. Twelve words. That’s all you used and yet, it was so deep and meaningful. Of course, that was after I had to pick myself up off the floor from gasping at the image that I found to be breathtaking. Honestly. An audible gasp came forth from me. Never seen a YELLOW fence at a cemetery.

  31. I do love the yellow picket fence in this photo! I hope you’ve had a lovely Easter weekend.

    PS – No my lizard wasn’t green. He’s a Water Dragon (grey/brown). I wish he was an iguana but I’m not sure if we have them here 🙂

  32. a perfect little haiku
    that tells a much larger story

  33. Great shot – great shadows! Lovely haiku!
    Hope you had a wonderful Easter!

    Stunning and so reflective!
