Desert Haiku

offset prints
bisected by tail drag
lizard sign

gnarled driftwood,
snake skin, rusty barbed wire
in red sand

cold morning,
the rising fire ball,
a silent knell

red sandstone
warmed by the rising sun
gorge aglow

yon mirage
mirror-clear blue,
chase the lie

  1. I spent last week in the Mojave and Sonoran deserts of Southern California basking in the bright sunshine and enjoying the clear blue night skies. It was good for my soul. In these times of stress and worry, I seek mindfulness and peace. The desert was peaceful; I returned to yoga and calmness. Your haiku is perfection.
