Beguiling

A creosote bush, left, and a palo verde tree seem to be conversing, while clouds and mountains listen, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona
 


Both bushes and trees
beguile the clouds with stories,
waiting for moonrise.

  1. “beguile the clouds with stories” – oh I like this 🙂

  2. Your photo and haiku capture the special moments of dusk in the desert!

  3. A serene sphere you have created in this haiku mmt … and as the moon has risen than that serenity will become even deeper.

    sharing with the foliage
    a dusky moment
