Old pines do a shadow dance.

hiking up parched hills
through the coolness of the pines—
ten more miles to go

  22. Oh that’s a nice place to have some cover against the sun, but i guess in your part of the world the people really go out to display their bodies to the sun. Here we cannot do that as the sun’s heat is so intense. Ten miles is still a long way, it is difficult to cover in our temperatures.

  23. The haiku has perfectly complemented the picture… 🙂
