Haiku Monday: Arizona

White girl! This mountain
is sacred. Move along, but
buy the bracelet first.

Arida zona,
thief of mountain water, blooms.
Life, where none should be.

This weekly meme is hosted at Troll's place every Monday.

Just pop over and place your haiku in the comments section for fabulous fun, prizes (any day now), and the haiku badge of honor.

I like the 1st one a lot. I'm guessing that's the resident's perspective on the Arizona tourist trade.

Excellent. Master Basho's Ghost prefers the second one but I like them both!

Good afternoon Moi,

Both are so true. The second one is a message no one wants to hear, yet they will one way or the other.

I like your second one a lot. And just wanted to tell you, that since you're a big part of my blogger family, I think baby is going to call you Moimy, teacher of fashion and the importance of a good pair of peep toes. :)

I have updates. :) xo.
