How barren the sky
since the ironwood blossoms
fell three weeks ago!

  1. What a photo! I feel sad some blossoms have done their time already. Fortunately there are late bloomers that I pass by this week and smell those lilacs:)

  2. Beautiful! It really touches the feeling of the prompt.

  3. I am so sad that due to surgery, I was unable to get out and photograph very many blossoms this spring. I shall have to content myself with photos of previous years. At least with your image, the texture of the ironwood makes up for no blossoms on it.

  4. Beautiful blue, blue skies and that gnarled tree is the perfect accent!! Terrific capture as always!! Have a great weekend!!

  5. What a beautiful haiku, so perfectly illustrated with the barren tree. I really love this.

  6. Beauty in that tree and blue sky ~ Great shot!

    Happy Weekend to you,

  7. Wonderful blue sky and a unique tree.

  8. Oh my that is a suggestive photograph and the haiku is poignant …

  9. It’s getting ready for its winter sleep. Nice shot.

  10. This is life ultimately!

  11. A lovely take on the thought of the span of time.
