Cactus Craft


Dicing nopales,
a woman clad in crimson
plies her cactus craft.

  1. Very Unusual,Cactus!
    Good one.
    Very picturesque.

  2. You have a knack for finding the color red. This seems like such a delicate operation.

      You wouldn’t believe how skillfully this woman was wielding her knife–and she never sliced a finger!

  3. I would like to see her doing some of the work. She wore the right color on this day.

  4. I am in awe of anyone who can handle a knife w/o getting nicked

  5. I am not good with a knife…love the words cactus craft

  6. Great photo and haiku combination ~ namaste,carol (A Creative Harbor)

  7. I love the photo as much as the “haiku” Thanks for coming by. I am looking forward to reading more!

  8. Another great compilation of prompts … it is amazing to watch the preparation of nopales involving very skillfully held knives! Happy Wednesday!

    Someone is Special

  11. Wonderful haiku/senryu MMT. Love the picture and you have something with crimson I think. This color is strong in this verse.

  12. That looks like a start of cooking up a recipe in mind, on the run for ingredients. 😀
