Autumn afternoon, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

ten thousand tulips
hidden somewhere in the sand
along with their scent

autumn afternoon
darting into the shadows
a terrified mouse

  1. thousands of tulips, eh? I guess I missed seeing their loveliness. 🙂

  2. Really nice imagery created!

  3. Your words are lovely … No picture needed.

  4. they just covered my yard in hay – I wonder if that’s where the tulips hide….

      I think tulips take whatever’s available as their hiding place!
