I do tend to write sort of unconciously as it were'. Then I go back and make the connections..' if you know what I mean..?

    ever seen the tarantula highway sunning of nitty-grittiness? Southwest tx is 'bout minimalistic as it gets, in my experience.

    A really good Haiku. I can see the noon day sun beating down and making many take shelter for a siesta. Good stuff. JB

    Have not been to Texas in a long time - I have family in Richardson. This is a fine haiku - one can almost feel the heat coming up from the page. Do you live in Texas? Peace & blessings Matthew Anish
