Decorated river stones left by young visitors, Roxaboxen Park, Yuma, Arizona

On the longest day
stones huddle in the shadows
to escape the sun.

      I, for one, will be glad when the shorter days arrive. That’s when the desert starts to cool down and become delightful again. Right now it’s almost unbearable.

  2. luv the decorated stones and so too your inspired haiku; have a nice weekend

    much love…

  3. Such a lovely photo….the painted rock reminds me of furniture I pained in the 60’s:) Long days means I can see the sun set at my lunch break…working shifts makes me meals all weird:)

  4. Such a pretty use of colour on the central stone. Lovely play of gentle shadows round the stones.

  5. The painted stones really stand out against the natural ones. Lovely!

  6. These creations are wonderful! I like those painted rocks!


    So colorful and tucked into the shade.

  15. I am afraid I would have to take one of those stones. I like them.

  16. But it is a dry heat is pretty hollow!!! Ovens are dry heat, too, no less hot! Wishing you (and the rocks) cool breezes and shade. Love the haiku and photo.
