  1. Could it be any drier!!!! How are those lovely little yellow flowers surviving. Your pic makes a great Shadow Shot too. Always an interesting post !!! Have a great week. Mickie 🙂

  2. I agree with Mickie, it is amazing that they survive in that dry, cracked earth. Love the haiku as well, especially “my tongue has twelve moons”.
