circles the Palo Verde
fiery red sunset
This haiku probably needs some translation. The picture shows a tarantula hawk wasp. Lately, in the evening they have been gathering around my Palo Verde tree. This is a tree with green bark and very tiny little leaves. The leaves are small so the tree doesn't lose a lot of water. The trunk and stems of the tree are green so the tree can use them for photosynthesis. I think this is the only tree that uses it stems to photosynthesize. So the wasps sit in the trees and the red sun sets in the sky. Can you imagine that picture?
Can you write your own haiku today? I used the traditional American 5-7-5 for my haiku, but you don't have to do that. Experiment. Have fun.
