Creosote bush blossom, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Thin ice fades at dawn—
I tremble with one blossom
clinging to the bush.

  1. Beautiful story told !!!

  2. Lovely composition. Happy Macro Monday.

  3. So beautiful…words and photo!

  4. I wonder if the blossom is as pungent as the wood is grows from.

  5. Do you tremble with joy or something else ?

  6. very nice words..

  7. Trembling is almost a lost art in our world, except for people who are ill. Didn’t Moses tremble at the burning bush? Didn’t Saul tremble as he rode to Damascus to persecute Christians? I sense something otherworldly in the trembling mentioned in this haiku. I may be wrong, but I think the poet is trembling in the presence of the Holy One.
