dead trees and no moon—
the cryptic constellations
of the shifting sands

  1. the constellations of the sands… (i ignore the fact about trees)… sounds heavenly!

  2. Outstanding, Magic. You have the most extraordinary grasp of the desert. You see what is hidden.

      Thanks, Annie. This wasteland has (surprisingly to me) become my home. When you’re home, you see things, or rather things let themselves be seen.

  3. This reminds me of the walks I took with my father in the southern Arizona desert. I like this haiku very much. Thanks for writing it.

  4. Oh wow, that is so phallic.

  5. You bring beauty and life to the desert so we can all appreciate it.

  6. I love trees – live or dead….

  7. I do like the idea of the sands somehow reflecting the stars in an unfathomable way.

  8. I think a moonless night in the dessert would be outstanding
