Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona

Among the palm fronds
the song of a mourning dove
lingers long past noon.

  6. lingering dove is such a gift ~ lovely haiku and photo ~ thanks,

    Happy weekend to you ~ ^_^

  7. It was only a few years ago when I realized our doves were ‘mourning’ instead of ‘morning’. We hear them all day long here in Florida and their call does not sound unhappy to my ear..

      It doesn’t sound mournful to me either, but obviously it did to the person(s) who named them!
