When droughts become severe, Arizona cottonwoods drop their leaves prematurely.

Dove of the desert,
how can a small dying leaf
hold your lively song?

  2. there are an abundance of doves this early spring here in Prescott, Az. they are a comfort even as they sing their mournful news of drought. water is gold as are the aspen leaves we love to watch dance on waves of wind. beautiful haiku with such grave foreboding.

  3. love the cycle of trees… i had no idea…. the beauty of a doves song can be sad… yes, we are in for a drought…. we didn’t have much snow.. loved your haiku
