St. Thomas Mission.June.2013 026 (1)
Framed by a tree at St. Thomas Indian Mission Church, Winterhaven, California, a view unfolds of the irrigated farmland in Yuma County, Arizona.

In a spot of shade
I pause for sips of water—
summer’s long journey.

  1. Precious those sips. Just like the words of your haiku, dear MMT.

  2. Beautifully written, 🙂

  3. The tree that frames. If only we did not need so much farmland and we could have more trees.

  4. I love how you framed the shot. Beautiful!

  5. Oh, the taste of water on a hot day! How refreshing! Beautiful photo! Have a grand weekend!

  6. For some reason, I was fascinated by the photo and ended up on Google Earth and figured out the approximate photo location and the view. Very complex area with a lot going on. The mission is beautiful.

  7. It IS a long journey to get through the days here in the Netherlands… tropical temperatures at least ’till Thursday and I sip water all day – your haiku shows me it’s hot overthere where you live too… stay cool dear! Hug from Holland!

  8. WOW! my thirsttoo is quenched. Happy SaturdayMaggie

    much 💝 love…

  9. Creative photo and words ~ lovely sips of joy ^_^

    Live each moment with love,

  11. the driest summer in my memory….oh please bring in the monsoons!!!
