Our Lady of the Dust, Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona

Blackbird on the wing,
how many songs of sorrow
are there yet to sing?

  1. such melancholy in so few words.

  2. This took my breath away!

  3. Many. And the blackbird sings will sing of that small gesture of hand… beautiful and poignant dear MMT,

  4. Way of life and also path of Our Lady ~ ‘joy and sorrow’ ~ lovely photo and haiku ~

    Wishing you a loving and magical weekend,
    artmusedog and carol

  5. Causes me to reflect on Our Blessed Mother’s life and the courage and love she displayed. She is our defender, too. I need to be reminded also.

  6. Such a joy to visit you again! She is just lovely.

  7. I have seen blackbirds in the cemetery. One landed on a tombstone near me. I felt a symbolism but unsure of it’s meaning.

      Sometimes we just can’t be quite sure of symbols, can we? We sense something, but words fail us.

  8. Oh, yes. That is the question. As many as are required of us, I suppose.

  9. Melancholy. That is what I have been feeling for the past two weeks, but your haiku just helped me to realize it. As always, I love your photos from the Sonoran desert.

  10. OMG what an awesome haiku!

  11. too many to count, we fear.
