3 strong images in this haiku. I love how the sun takes centre stage....as it’s wont to do.

The earth makes time for both - the desert and the rain. Even a cactus needs just a little bit of water. Smiles.

Ah, yes, once the sun comes out the earth starts to parch again. How well I know, living in the desert.

I see the new growth is leaning towards the light no doubt mourning for the desert! Yes the haiku is beautiful.

Magaly Guerrero said...

This reads like a whisper from a miracle... sending signals to the barren soil/sand, saying that not all is lost.

I really like this one, Gillena.
