First blossoms on an ironwood tree, March 2015, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

swept up together
first blossoms on the ironwood
and the bright blue sky

For my inspiration, I have used this haiku by Santoka Taneda:
dew and
fallen leaves
swept up together
More Blue Monday
More Macro Monday 2
More SkyWatch Friday
More I Heart Macro at Shine the Divine
More Haiku My Heart at Recuerda Mi Corazon
More Carpe Diem: “Inspired by Santoka Taneda”
