Haiku Tuesday: Sand Sea Sentinels

Tempting overlook
green hills distant call our names
the trail maze confounds

Hail the desert king
loyal, we stiff arm salute
stand at ease, refused

At painted sunset
smooth brushstrokes fail to evoke,
your presence required

Beneath rocky crags
under lifeless stone and sand
tiny eyes peer out

Summer sun beats down
weak smiles conceal winter’s sins
tears soak arid earth

  1. reminds me of Gate’s Pass in Tucson. used to drive out there and find a ledge on the side of a cliff and watch the sun go down. i guess you have heard Holocene by Bon Iver. if not here you go.
