  1. Beautiful flames ablaze!!

  2. Tiny throats aglow…beautiful…MMT….I loved this imagery…


  3. Beautifully woven haiku… I’m fascinated by the fact that these flowers are called ‘hummingbirds’ (in Spanish) Do you suppose it is because they also look like the birds they attract ? From the photo, the flowers look like they could be airborne at any moment!

  4. Love the idea of desert birds afire! I think of the Firebird ballet!

  5. Creative mind of having one’s own photo to accompany the beauty held in the words.

  6. Such a different thought there

  7. I watched the first of the documentary series called Orbit last night. They spent time in the Sonoran Desert and I recognised to much from your haik posts …thank you for taking me there 🙂

      You’re welcome. I hope to continue the journey in the Sonoran Desert with you after my brief sojourn in southern California.

    Brings the desert livid.

  9. Stunning shot! Amazing haiku. You always come up with a different take with common thread of desert running through.

  10. “tiny throats aglow” – the last line is unique !!!
