Daily Haiku / Senryu : Glorious

dusty sage and buffs
plants struggling against the heat ­—
glorious sunsets

From Amazon, some random Arizona sunset things I saw.  Sometimes Amazon surprises me with the breadth of things on its site.  Who knew they had Arizona license plates?  I still remember when they only sold books (omg! that totally dates me!). I had expected to find a coffee book on Arizona sunsets but no go. Instead, I found the unavailable “Volcanoes of Arizona: San Francisco Peaks, Sunset Crater, San Francisco Volcanic Field, Uinkaret Volcanic Field, Mount Elden, Humphreys Peak”. I had no clue Arizona had volcanoes. So throwing up my hands, I looked for Arizona photography books. I love the Arizona Highways magazine so that was an easy choice. The how-to wildflower one reminded me I need to get out more and shoot some photos.
