Tucked

Day’s end, with mountains in the distance, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona


Kobayashi Issa’s haiku about a mountain’s shadow inspires me to write a new haiku:

 

misty day—
in evening mountain’s shadow
candyman’s flute

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


tucked among branches
the mountain alone remains
after shadows pass
