Prickly Flowers - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Beauty of our Arizona desert touches my sight whenever
I look out across it's vast emptiness.

Yet, if you look closely, you will see it's beauty in
all directions.

Saguaros standing tall, protecting everything living
in this hot and arid environment.

Everywhere you look it is stark and brightly colored
in a picture perfect reality, with cacti blooming.

Blossoms all over them, in many different hues and
colors, an amazing variety of them.

A garden of prickly flowers everywhere, a quiet and
still, very peaceful place to live and roam throughout
it's tenuous landscape.

    The genius of an artist and a poet, finds life and colors and blossoms in an arid desert... I myself am a tropics person..like my rain and high mountains lining beaches and Greenland person. But I can dream the beauty shimmering in golden deserts thanks to poets like you. thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
