Desert Weather – a Haiku

Death Valley

Tempest clouds the sky
and drowns the valley in floods,
then sun shines brightly.

Clarity

Desert in Winter

Clouds gather swiftly –
pouring rain, biting winds –
still, clear skies follow.

Half-Light

Shadow of Leaves on Leaf

Twilight falls slowly:
shadows lengthening on leaves,
green fading to night.

*Sorry, I just realized I published the unedited version of my haiku in the first instance of posting. (Yikes!) This is the final version.

Spring

Soon after the rain
dew drips from petals slowly –
amaranthine Spring.

Shadows, Close-Up
