  1. And tears that never end.

  2. Saguaro cacti absolutely fascinate me. From their small beginnings to their dramatic endings, they are an unwatchable range of beauty.

  4. More often than not.

    Can’t help but wonder if any artists make art from the remains of the saguaro cactus. Circle of life.

      I’m going to say no, because disturbing or destroying saguaros (even dead ones, I presume) is illegal in Arizona.

  6. Beautiful photo and poem.

  7. A impressive photo !
    My contribution…
    Greetings from Germany

  8. View of big cactuses in desert always amaze me. It’s because we don’t have them here 🙂 it’s great capture. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Yet these ribs could be the beginning of another adventure into architecture instead of the end. Don’t be sad. Big hugs.

  10. I don’t think we think in the same way as the saguaro cactus does. We are annoyed at death but to them and many other species it is all part of the great circle of life.

  11. That they are.. sadly

  12. Wonderful capture.

  13. Many items can be made from these leavings of a cactus! Have a lovely day!

  14. Gorgeous cactus shot and another lovely contemplative one line haiku ~ thanks,

    Happy week to you ~ ^_^

  15. But then I guess all good times have to come to an end. 😦
