Haiku 2010/239

banal clouds, tired trees,
that bird pecking so sadly
unevocative

Pobrecito. The clouds are exciting, the trees dynamic, and the birds exotic down here in evocative Palm Springs. It's also hotter than hell, but you can't have everything.

You have trees in that desert? Other than palm?

As always, I'm happy that you're happy. This was meant not only as a passing moment but as an ironic joke about Nature as an endless source of poetic and spiritual inspiration.

Really funny haiku, and I think it would be hard to come up with adjectives that are not opposites of the usual, but trying to convey kind of a blankness (though that's not the right word, which proves my point).
