Tranquil afternoon—
a lizard’s flickering tongue
shatters the silence.

  1. Oh it does too!!! Lovely!

  2. Ha.

    Sometimes that is all it takes – if nothing else, the silence of our minds.

  3. Oooo! That is a deep and fragile silence!

  4. Very cool. I can see his tongue……..

  5. Love the photo of the desert – the lizard speaks – so to speak.

  6. In Australia we have plenty of deserts too and they are wonderful places to see so much life adapting and surviving in very hard conditions.

  7. A very nice haiku moment

    Much💖love…

  8. It does doesn’t it Good one

  9. Brilliant juxtaposition! Vivid images! You nail it!

  10. hahaha…this felt like one of those videos where the flickering of a lizard’s tongue is in slow motion with no sound. Yeah it makes me laugh, I don’t know why it does. Hehe.

  11. Again – I love your words!
