Sundown, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

A tangled woodpile—
home to creatures great and small—
lizard, bird and ant.

  7. This pile of bramble looks almost alive, as if they are like the trees in the old movie Snow White that are grabbing at her. The file might be considered waste by some, but it is organic and life-like by me…Nice!
