  2. I've lived in the desert and it's such a joy to see the cactus bloom as well as the desert. Some would say the desert is barren, that is till you've seen it's bloom.

    Lovely piece. Imagery great.

  14. I agree about the beauty in the desert. It is a beauty stripped bare, but a beauty nonetheless. This was a georgeous poem!

  15. Lovely Grizz. I always remember though about roses having thorns, like love does.Cactus is like that too.
    I love cactus flowers, they are especially strange in that they come from such a not so nice prickly plant.

  16. selma-I think if is a beauty all its own, a beauty people are afraid to meet. Have you noticed how beautiful people are when you know them personally. The deserts like that.
