Innocent of Hope


Innocent of hope,
I wander desert borders,
foggy with despair.

  1. That is a bit of how I have been feeling. Have a wonderful week.

  2. Lovely scenery and a beautiful sky. Looks like a great day! Happy skywatching!

  3. Snyggt men nog lite för varmt för mej;-))
    Ha en skön helg;-)

  4. You have no idea how I want to wander the desert again. I was hoping to get down that way this month, but the budget won’t handle another trip, (read: cost of gas). Love the landscape in the photo. I guess I’ll have to be patient and look over the lake up here in the Northland when Spring gets here.


  5. Nydelig!
    Ha en fin helg :O)

  6. Well…liked it but couldn’t make out who was in despair… thought it was desert…

      The despairing one could be the speaker or the desert. It all depends on how you read it!

  7. Beautiful photo. Like the vast landscape. Clean. The desert is a lovely place to be in (if you have some water). 🙂

  8. i have so many fond memories of full moon walks in this desert. the warm breeze, the vast bowl of stars shimmering. i would wake each morning to the sound of birds…my legs and hands smelling of wild sage.

  9. Interesting landscape, so different from what I see every day!

  10. teenagersmom

    Looks like a clear and gorgeous day!

  11. I really like all your pictures fro det desert. The blue sky and the desert sand:)

  12. I hope you’re not really in despair, my friend! Next week’s theme might be a challenge, but I’m sure you can rise to it. I have to throw in a tough word here and there or it becomes too easy… and that’s not how I roll…!

    Have a super weekend!

  13. Great pic from a desert with a beautiful sky. Have a nice weekend!

  14. Maybe it’s dehydration . . .

  15. Så fint bilde 🙂

  16. This isn’t like you, MMT~ On the other hand, of course it is: we’re not just one thing, one mood, one personality…
    In a moment of despair, look at the Cloud Maiden and think of her as your North Star. You’ll find your way again. How evocative your haiku is… Love ☺

  17. the soft colors of this landscape are intoxicating!

    happy mothers day!

  18. Beautiful landscape and words…they leave me looking deeper into myself, thank you.

  19. Beautiful capture, and as always, your words touch me.

  20. hope the fog has lifted . . .

  21. I learned to love the desert when my kids were young and we camped there–including the beautiful Anza Borrego. Thanks for sharing.

  22. I am fascinated while I wander the desert.Never have I had a feeling of much to see and learn about survival of the various native plants.
    I thank you for the poems you leave me at my Nature Trail..I enjoy each one!
    smiles from me.

  23. thanks for stopping by my blog! love the dessert skywatch. the mountains off in the distance is great!
