Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

A barley farmer,
taking the wilderness way,
misses the green field.

  1. A very well travelled shoe.

  2. I like it – it’s a great colour palette and there’s a mystery, too!

  3. well travelled barley farmer shoe? ~ lovely haiku ~ great photo ~ enjoy ^_^

  4. Where’s the owner of this shoe?

  5. Yes, it’s difficult, almost impossible not to miss the green, green…fields of home. Beautiful.

  6. Beautiful shot. I played too. Mine are here and here.

  7. The end of the road for this shoe but it traveled far. Great shot.

  8. when wilderness calls, shoes are useless!

  9. I would imagine that the wilderness way is really OUT of the way! The battered, abandoned shoe seems to lead to that interpretation.

    Bitter Barley Brew

  10. The farmer’s lost in the wilderness … no barley field in sight.

  11. Made to last, as is the haiku….the latter more interesting to think about.

  12. Quiet an artistic photo !

  13. missed the farm and lost a shoe….bad day for that guy…

  14. That shoe has been through a lot.

    My entries:
    Liz (mcn)
    Liz (mot)

  15. {{ oh man …

    haven’t we ALL had days
    when we felt like that … }}

  16. OMG had not identified it as a shoe. Had to go back and look again after reading that. Your writing is always a treat for my senses.

  17. how odd…doesn’t that person miss her shoe? missing the green around here too.

  18. weathered by the sun and sand. i hope the journey is worth it. 🙂
