Desert Haiku

under the mesquite
tree sit you, me, and a bee
searching for nectar

Funny, that photo looks much better enlarged (click on it) than it does like this. I wonder why. Want to see worse haiku or generate some? That second one is pretty fun.

  1. I do like the large version better. It also made me a little homesick for Arizona. (I loved the mesquite trees in the desert, and the coves that always hung out in them.)


  2. You are so right! The huge view is spectacular and allows full appreciation of the intricate nature of the tree’s branches and leaves. Fine post… I passed on the haiku.


  3. Candice,

    This is John Sachen, steering committee member of the Arizona Matsuri which is scheduled for Feb 21-22, 2015 in downtown Phoenix. I have found your blog through a web search on haiku and Arizona.

    This year I have initiated a Haiku poetry event to help raise interest in the arts and culture of Japan to the people of Arizona. Our Haiku event is now open for online entries and each entrant can submit up to 3 haiku free of charge with a submission deadline of January 24, 2015.

    It would be great if you could help us promote it to the people in your network your blog followers who may want to challenge themselves with creating an Arizona inspired haiku. All the information is online and includes lesson plans, guidelines and online entry forms.

    Thank you in advance and please feel free to pass on this info to any interested friends, blog followers etc.
