among the cacti
not even one carnation

  1. I love the way you answer the prompts. Always unique.

      Thank you! Living in the desert presents special challenges. Writing to prompts that have to do with non-desert species is only one of them. 😉

      • I have the same feeling even I don’t live in a desert. I often write about things that I have never been interested in, or things that I don’t know much about. There is a challenge! 🙂

  2. Ouch … hard to find a carnation in the desert … great take on the post.

  3. No room for carnations there among the spines.

  4. MMT — I do love the way your mind creates your Haiku ~~ never know what to expect … except the unexpected. Another winner! 😀

  5. Shame that…could turn a person into a spiny ant eater…time for you to submerge yourself into some blancmangerie !:)

  6. It is wonderful how you take the Japanese experience and meld with Arizona.
