desert afternoon
not even thin mist falling
sizzling is the way

Even the cactus shadows are sweating!

  1. There is always some way

  2. I’d ask saguaro
    on a sizzling afternoon
    is the mist missed

      I was going to play with “mist” and “missed,” but I missed my opportunity, thanks to your cleverness! 😉

  3. It’s your bird-day? Happy day! 🙂 Those saguaro are such strange creatures. I always expect them to start walking about.

  4. I can feel the heat coming from the ‘page’!

  5. Sad situation, when the only moisture anywhere in sight is your own sweat. Still, beautifully captured, teacherman; I’m enjoying your desert sojourn.

  6. The imagery of the cactus sweating conjured up a strange and amusing picture in my head. Love the haiku.

  7. Great picture! Love the shadows!

  8. Great photo … the haiku really tells it all!

  9. I like a little heat 🙂

  10. I can feel the heat and the dramatic landscape.

  11. It’s a cool photo. The shadow shows us the shape of the cactus.

  12. Great photo and … yes you can almost feel the heat of the desert ….
