Autumn afternoon, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

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


  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!
