looking for moonrise
while the sun’s still bearing down—
her old affliction

  1. sometimes the moon is there before the sun goes down, i understand why she is looking

    much love…

  2. hopeless romantics
    loving the cool cover of
    mysterious night

  3. I have a large coral that, except for being white, looks like this cholla cactus. Interesting how Mother Nature duplicates herself both on land and below the sea. This is nice.

  4. My first time to see this kind of cactus. Love the composition.

  5. I love her. But will only imagine hugging her as if I were the sun or the moon…

  6. Oh! Fabulous!

  7. That sun always shines even at night.

  8. Hope springs eternal.

  9. Beautiful cactus… oh the sun, can be relentless.

  10. Fantastic photo of an intriguing tree! Significant message in your lovely haiku!

    Happy Week to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  11. In the Anza Borrego Desert, she would be very hard to find, indeed.
