Sonoran Desert near Wellton, Arizona

sun-blasted seed pods
ten thousand tiny balloons
bobbing in the breeze

  1. I see these pods as giant butterfly chrysalides, bobbing and ready to reveal what’s inside.

  2. Wonderful imagination.

    My Shadows

  9. always enjoy desert-scapes… simple and full at the same time…..with great take on balloon prompt…..

  10. Baloons of Nature ~ how creative ^_^ ( A Creative Harbor)

  11. What a serene and lovely image.

  12. Let the winds blow them all around, just like it does the big balloons!


  13. Wonder what happens when you blow on them? Looks like a peaceful scene.

  14. i can see the balloons floating aimlessly, little dots in the sonoran sky.

  15. This is cool. the sky is hanging so low all the colours of the land are saturated instead of bleached. I like your balloon analogy. This is fun. The big bush on the right looks almost like it was painted there. I love the golds and rusts.

  16. What a great photo, and a lilting haiku!

  17. Great shot and beautiful haiku.

  18. If I’m not mistaken, they also do a wee bit of a rattling noise. I always love your visual and written presentations. Consistently stellar, I say.

  19. The desert is dry, but you have proved it isn’t dead!
