A winter day, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Winter afternoon—
a dove leaves its mournful song
on a frozen branch.

  1. Okay, I was looking for the dove and then it hit me your keyword “leaves”. The dove is no longer there! lol Oh well, the tree is very interesting with the dessert backdrop. Cool SWF photo! My weekly contribution is here and while you’re at my place, then check out today’s Friday Sillies segments. Have a good weekend and be blessed!

  2. It has become so cold here again that the poor doves sit huddled on the lines in between forays to the feeders.

  3. Beautiful! I can FEEL this!

  4. that dove is one busy feathered friend ~ creative pic for Sky Watch Friday too ~

    Wishing you a Happy and Fun weekend ~ ^_^

  5. So beautiful. We have a flock of doves living in our yard. Their call is so lovely.

  6. This makes me sad. 🙂 Happy New Year, Maggie. 🙂

  7. Oh what joy will fill the air with the spring thaw!!!

  8. May it’s song cheer up when the sun comes out.

  9. i like the texture of the bark on the tre.

  10. Beautiful photo and haiku!
