Autumn sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

rising as balloons
a thousand clouds at daybreak—
autumn festival
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
one more day’s journey
without a destination—
I lay down my flute

  1. You leave me wanting to reflect on “journey” and see where it might lead! Hoping you pick up the flute again soon!

  2. There is something mystical about this haiku. It stokes the imagination. Great write!

  3. such beauty rising in this

  4. your autumn festival lifts me to new heights- thank you!

  5. I have never before thought of clouds in this way… I love this image! And sometimes… there is no destination, but just the journey… I long for the sound of that flute…

  6. Please don’t lay down your flute.

    PS: Remember “Lay Down Your Weary Tune”?

  7. Autumn and the sound of flute fills me with peace.

  8. You have taken me up and away floating somewhere without a care. Please play your flute it would completely set me free.

  9. Beautiful imagery this phrase – cloud balloon.

    My ears perked to life at the mention of the flute.

  10. beautiful early morning colours 🙂

  11. Can hear your flute with the gorgeous sky showing me the way ~

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

    of our musical interlude

    Much love…

  13. later for want of music
    the endless search begins

    Beautifully poignant .

  14. delightful festival
    autumn’s last celebration

  15. rising as balloons
    a thousand clouds at daybreak—
