  1. What a nice haiku inspired on the one I gave. Thank you MMT.

  2. Magical and beautiful!

  3. Haiku : Is a fading blossom better than no blossom at all? I think so.
    Photo: Beautiful composition… you make a fading blossom look stunning. I love the color of the spikes contrasting with the red flower.

      I want everyone to know, including you, that the blossom is from a nearby ocotillo. It has nothing to do with the cactus—except for being impaled on it!

  4. i take solace
    from fading blossom’s beauty
    my soul’s companion


  5. great haiku, that blossom is awesome ^^

  6. It is with you. Cherish the moments.

  7. the blossom
    speared by the cactus
    jealous rage?

    Love your work as always 🙂
