Prickly Heart Haiku

spines pierce desert light
thrusting outward to protect
quiet tenderness

Lovely collection and verse.

And I enjoyed your snow photos in the previous post. The desert canyons and terrain are so different than what we have in the east. So Its always a pleasure to visit your images.
