sun wheeling its course—
somewhere a raven quartet
croaks out a warning

    Much love…

  6. That was a nice read; thanks.

  7. Beautiful photo – and I love the idea of a raven quartet.

    Like this a lot – certainly hit the spot… Lovely work…. With Best Wishes Scott http://www.scotthastie.com

  10. Love this, especially the raven quartet! We feed them and have many more than a quartet. They watch our house closely, but not in a creepy way.

  11. Am a sucker for skeletal trees against colorful sky. Some believe that ravens are shape shifters, a quartet of them would certainly bring on a sense of caution…or expectations of grand counter-point harmony.


  12. Hm. Ravens wheel and so does the sun. I like how you put the two together.

  13. Beautiful pic MMT. Gives a rustic feel supported by good color spread! Wonderful write!


  14. I always enjoy your reflections on the Sonoran desert. I worked for some time in the mid north of South Australia where the country is much the same.

  15. Love it, both the haiku and that photo too. Sometimes the camera fails with capture those kinds of colors.

  16. yikes! what are they warning us about? superb shadow shot! I really like the contrast of the trees’ blackness against the stunning sunset sky.

  17. Gorgeous! Great colors!

  18. Should we be afraid of the sun..or the ravens..neither maybe..they work well together perhaps!

      No fear. Some warnings are meant to be ignored! 😉

  19. Lovely poem and the pic is stunning, mmt.


  20. I always listen when those warnings take wing, fly by.
