Begging for Raindrops
Begging for Raindrops
Road runner stands still
hot sun peeks over the ridge
looking for some shade
Red bougainvillia
splashes of brilliant color
climbing the stone wall
Arms reaching upward
stately saguaro cactus
stands guard at my door
Oh desert sunset!
yucca's tall creamy blossoms
begging for raindrops
Author's Notes:
Quatro-Haiku...four haiku from the desert

Quatro-Haiku = Marvelous
