Spring in the Sonoran Desert

Palo Verde trees
Children play beneath splendor
Yellow blossoms  fall

By Laura

We live in the Sonoran desert among the coyotes, javelinas, roadrunners and jackrabbits.  My kids love to run and play in the backyard.  Their play structure is nestled under two beautiful Palo Verde trees. 

It is Spring in Tucson!  I'm celebrating by posting a poem for Haiku Friday hosted by Playgroups Are No Place For Children and A Mommy Story

Ah, it's been so long since I've been in the desert. I'm originally from Phoenix, but have been in the Pacific Northwest for quite a long time.

Your haiku was lovely, and the post about losing the baby too familiar. :P

It was spring at Red Rock Canyon last week as well. Lots of wild flowers, maybe I'll put up a picture.
