Shifting Sands Haiku

by Rocky Macy

Torrents of cold rain
Sweep across the arid land
Soaking it to life.

Desert sentinel
The mighty Saguro stands
Quietly watching.

Lonely cactus rose
Perched upon a windswept grave
Breeding life from dust.

Deadly sidewinder
Sliding through the sun-baked rocks
Seeking out the shade.

The watering hole
Draws a thirsty crowd at dusk
To taste renewal.
