Some shadows, a stone,
the singing of wind and sun—
what more do you need?

  1. Nothing more is needed.

    Dramatic strata there.

  2. its the simple things! thanks for reminding us of that!

  3. Very dramatic and yet simple. Nice.

  4. I like the Haiku you matched with this photo. Perfect!

  5. oh,what else do anyone need?
    Beautiful write!

  6. last night when i went to bed i thought about all your haiku and how deeply i look forward to reading each one. and your photographs…wonderful finger prints of the life around you.
    i feel asleep thinking how extraordinary it would be if the pictures could be larger…and thought, in the morning i will ask you if you ever considered offering them in a larger format.
    and here i am, and here they are!
    love the synchronicity of this!

    thanks for the largeness of your beauty!

  7. Beautiful stone and words.

  8. Indigenous writing perhaps…just kidding.
    Beautiful as is of course.

  9. The beauty of nature.

  16. You’re absolutely right.

  17. For me, that would be shade and a temp about 75 degrees.

  18. Disregard my last comment about where in San Diego Cabrillo’s statue is. It is at the monument, of course. What a beautiful geological postcard this is. Imagine all the centuries exposed in these striations.

  19. My husband, an engineer will always give me a lecture about the formation of the rocks when he see rocks like your photo.

  20. The simplicity of nature offers a complex sensory gift … or maybe it is the other way around!!

  21. Not a single thing more!! Lovely shot and great haiku to go with it.

  22. The songs of nature are enough for me!
