  1. Beautiful mmt … no icicles only sand. I sense a deeper meaning.

  2. The sandman would approve! I always wonder when I see one magnificent tree such as this-as to how it manages to stand alone.

  3. Those are gorgeous shadows – your comment about the difference between “To Let” and “For Rent” reminds me of an incident when I visited the USA – see http://geraldpoetry.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/rent-bench.html

  4. So smart! A haiku about icicles missing them…, excellent.

  5. Alas, the Sonoran and icicles are mutually exclusive – a hard freeze and frozen precip is not likely to occur…the desert will do fine without that!

  6. Let us know if you ever do see an icicle in the desert! That would be quite a capture.

    Pretty photo, all joking aside.

  7. At least there’s sun – back in Finland it will be dark, dark…but in January minute by minute we’ll get more light.
    Happy holidays, all the best for a new year 2013!
    See you again at the end of January…

  8. Beautiful capture!

    Candle Shadow
    Wishing you a happy holidays and a joyous new year!

  9. I wonder if he was disappointed. I’m sure I would be, but apparently monks are so otherworldly that common human problems—including disappointment—don’t make them fret.


  10. I think a lot of us would love a sunny desert, sans icicles, right now…,

  11. a great shadow shot. Seasons greetings. 🙂

  12. Love the haiku! That truly is a great shadow!
