Apache County, Arizona


somewhere a snowfall
serving hunger to wild things—
a waxwing falters

  3. Snow in Arizona? For real? I did not know that. How duh I must be. It is a nice picture. Poor waxwing. Send him south.

      Snow in northern Arizona, for sure, although this photo was taken several years ago. People here in the Sonoran Desert part of Arizona tell me that it snows once every 50 years—for about an hour!

  4. We have lots of birdfeeders and love it as many birds stop in as they migrate through here. Unfortunately poor Waxwing didn’t make it.

  5. so well crafted. a model haiku.
    and I always look forward to your photographs.

  6. I love the unexpected. I too would falter flying over snow in the desert.

  7. I love this sunlight and shadow play on the snow. Lovely haiku. 🙂

  8. I love it. I used to live in Apache County, Eagar, near the White Mountains, about, oh say, 48 years ago.

  9. Poor little waxwing. Wonderfully done
