one more farewell psalm
before the shadows close in
and birdsong is past

  1. There are several ways one can interpret this, provided of course it is a metaphor not just a fancy way of saying goodnight!

  2. Beautiful pairing of image and haiku

  3. Awesome clouds and a pretty sky. Lovely photo. Enjoy you day and the weekend ahead!

  4. I agree with Laura…a perfect haiku with a post card image of the Sonoran Desert Summer Sky.

  5. A disturbing haiku…prophetic, I fear. And a beautiful view of our desert.

  6. This is so beautiful. And I am so glad it is not YOUR farewell for when I saw the title I thought, “How will i manage without her?”

  7. In the desert the colors looks always brighter. Nice photo with accompanying text.

  8. Beautiful image and words.

  9. Beautiful sky shot ~ those clouds are wonderful! against the bluest sky!

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  10. This is beautiful but you are going nowhere are you? The beauty of poetry is the emotions that can be created by words.

      Are you asking if I’m going to vanish from the blogosphere? Eventually, I suppose, but not immediately!
