  1. however the prickly cactus says to me ‘the grass isn’t always greener on the other side’ have a nice Wednesday

    much love…

  2. Beautiful, words and photo!

  3. Beautiful photo MMT … in balance with the haiku … thank you for sharing.

  4. The pink color in the cactus is lovely but I wouldn’t want to tangle with that plant! And your poem turns the usual idea of people looking north across that border with longing on its head! Nice.

  5. Lovely… that feeling of longing resounds in the photograph. 🙂

  6. unusual direction for which to long

  7. To look southward with longing makes for an unusual effect.. very nice

  8. The desert always longs for water…
