  1. Beautiful! Happy RT2.

    Mine’s here.

  2. This is beautiful and I love the image the Haiku brings to mind.

  3. Petals are a succulent’s fragile keepsake that symbolize the special meaning of the ring of bird and desert. Just so eloquently captured by your piece!

  4. Transition so natural… pic so real…
    Simply Superb!

  5. What a wonderful haiku…as beautiful as the petals of the flowers. The mix of the green cactus with the reds of the petals of the blooms is lovely. I brought home a lonely what I call leaf from a cactus plant washed ashore during the hurricane. It looked dead, but I thought it was interesting so carried it home. Plopped it on top of a pot of dirt and now I have 2 wonderful 4 inch green sprouts reaching for the ceiling. I am so thrilled. genie

  6. Your haiku is every bit as lovely as the photo!
    Happy REDnesday,

  7. I have several cactus plants, but none have bloomed like this. Lovely!

  8. Lovely Blooms! I had a patch of cactus in the yard of my last house but the blooms were very small and yellow. I like these much better.

    Thanks for visiting the Amish town with me.
