My response to the prompt:

prickly topiaries
nesting birds waken
saguaro sunrise

In January/February 1992 I spent six

weeks at The Meadows, in Wickenburg

Arizona, USA.  Waking early to see the

sunrise was a special treat.    Being from

the Midwest and Downeast Maine, the

saguaro cactus was fascinating with its

quirks and perks.

The prompt: Carpe Diem: desert

.

You will understand that our prompt for today is desert

and these are the haiku which Jane Reichhold

uses as an example for this modern summer kigo:

desert
awakened by silence
filled with dark

stars
in the sand
desert GIFT

YOUR voice
tying me to the desert
toast POPS UP

Aren’t they gorgeous?

I especially like the second haiku shared here,

because of the nice FREE style” way of composing it.

Through this free style this haiku is very strong and intense.

A few other “desert”-haiku,

the first an oldie from my personal weblog

Chèvrefeuille’s Haiku-blog and a new (re-done) one.

in the desert
the heat, the sand … my eyes
a Fata Morgana

…………..

tears fall

lost and alone in the desert

just the moon and I

Ah! The desert, one of our wonderful “eco-systems”.

I have learned to admire the desert through the posts of MMT.

Her photos and haiku have done that to me.
