Nice photo and haiku. I've been caught in one of those southwestern monsoons - yikes! Meanwhile, July Culinary Smackdown theme has been posted on my blog. Hope you'll be able to take a break from manuscript wrangling and join in the fun!
A desert in bloom is a vision I have seen only once. I remember the feeling of surprise as the day before it was just so stark and drab I yearned for color. Lovely pairing of prose and picture.
I remember a trip to N.M in June many years ago and experiencing the monsoonal rains you've described. The smell of the wet dirt was something that really stayed with me. Lovely picture. Happy Haiku Thursday!
dramatic sky~ very nice photograph moi - if ya painted that the colors would seem phony ..nice pairing with a haiku written in scientific inquiryhail and pelt: a design team specializing in outerwear with furget some desert flower pictures!
We had "monsoonal rains" here today that took out the main power line on my mom's house. Need the water but can do without the falling pine tree limbs and cones.
Eggplant: I'll be right over!Fishy: The desert demands close scrutiny and careful attention. And things are not always what they seem. Boxer: Monsoons also bring wet dog smell.Chickory: Our skies are amazing. Just like Bierstadt paintings come to life. We've got some great flowers currently popping up, including Indian Paintbrush. Unfortunately, my good camera seems to be broken. I'll have to see what the little one can do.Buzz: We mostly lose power in the winter when snow downs power lines. But sometimes in summer, a line gets fried and we're in the dark for a while. I hate it, as it reminds me how dependent we all are on the flip of a switch.
I think some of those monsoons came through here while we were away. Wonderful photo and really illustrates the haiku. Hopefully things will be back in full swing next week now that my life is my own again. Almost anyway.
Did you take this Moi? Gorgeous.
This week's theme: Patriotism!
Pam: I think Oklahoma takes our weather and then magnifies it a thousand degrees. Hope you get back in the swing of things soon!La Diva: I took this last summer after an evening storm. Our skies are magnificent, although a few of those Miami sunsets will give us a run for our money for sure. Especially if DJ is shooting them.Pam: Oh, goody. I have an idea . . .
