grasses whisper lullabies—
I am almost home.

  4. So glad I Googled and found your sight. This is lovely haiku, very in touch with the “home” theme this week! Amy Barlow Liberatore

  5. The day is hot and dry, and the beast of burden is tired yet still faithful. He will carry you home, the soft sand soothing for your equine friend. The reward is relaxing in the stable – and soon!

  6. I wonder where the hoofprints lead? And are they the prints of a horse or other animal?

    Almost home from your travels to Mexico? You are a busy person, that’s for sure.


  7. Beautiful shot! The haiku really adds meaning to the picture.

  8. Wonderful bit of Haiku here to accompany your gorgeous shadow shot!

  10. trudge on, weary traveler.. and let the lullabies soothe your travels!

  11. This shot makes me wonder where Bud has left his footprints these past three weeks. It’s all gonna be over today, I think…the Canadian border at last. Looking at the sand with all of the hoof prints makes me think HOT!. The way you captured this one makes me feel like I am actually there. genie
