My response to the prompt:
nesting birds waken
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:
awakened by silence
filled with dark
in the sand
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
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.

A musical prompt…

it’s of his latest album “Colors of the East”
soothing sands and sun
no warning of flash flood watch
good day for walk
When staying in Wikenburg, AZ we were warned that the river path
for desert walks could be suddenly over flowing with raging water.
This photo I found on a Google search shows what can happen in a
desert moment…I saw a flash flood, from afar, where I walked earlier.
