An ironwood tree at dusk, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Somewhere a skylark,
far from these wasted places,
trills a note of joy.

  1. I do not see waste; I see beauty both in the photo and words. 🙂

  2. I wonder if it is the same skylark Mark Redfern waits for in vain. Probably so. Like this a lot.

  3. The wilderness thrives on distant joy.

  4. This is BEAUTIFUL. And hopeful! Uplifting. I love it! “somewhere a skylark” I will remember that today.

  5. I feel joyful just reading these words and looking at that awesome photo. Thank you for sharing this image.

  6. You have shown us so much beauty in this “wasteland”… I do not think it is wasted… listen for tiny insects, they too sing songs of joy.

  7. I agree with Gillena — there’s beauty here — skylark or not. 🙂

  8. You always see the good in things. Your comments were timely and highly appreciated

  9. Lovely Haiga with the delightful Lark and wonderful photo!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  10. Beautiful … I love the stark beauty of the desert.

  11. lovely … this would have worked very well with melancholy too.

  12. Whenever I drive between Bakersfield and Needles, I find myself totally immersed in the landscape which is much like this in places. I love the hard, masculine feel of the land, the sense that everything is absolutely simple and straightforward with nothing hidden.
