The Last Rainbow

Weathered tree

Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Tree Woman groaning,
how long since the last rainbow
spanned your desert home?

  1. Beautiful photo – and in a way sad.
    I love how the branches shows up with the blue sky behind.

  2. It’s for sure a long time ago this dessert saw a rainbow. Great picture.

  3. For sure this dessert hasn’t seen a rainbow in a thousand years. Great photo.

  4. So nice photos! Have a nice Thursday evening! 🙂

  5. Love your desert haikus 🙂

    Poor female tree…, her dry branches look like arms telling the sky, “Please, some rain”. I think this tree is trying to fly away but her roots are firmly stuck in the desert.
    Sad but lovely haiku.

  7. I love it, both the pic and words, I feel the groaning.

  8. Great shot and lovely words. That branch looks so lonely.

  9. (I’m answering to your question) Not very long, in fact : We had a day with alternance of rain and sun, and I caught a nice rainbow… 🙂

    Your picture is so beautiful : great composition.

  10. this is so beautiful…love the drama.
