Saguaro flowers

Saguaro cactus blossoms, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona

Saguaro flowers glowing
Against the bright blue sky
Fill me with greatest pleasure,
And here’s the reason why:
I think there’s nothing finer
Than seeing a white bloom
Juxtaposed against the sky
To chase away my gloom.

  4. My mother had a Christmas cactus which had been her grandmother’s. Starts from this plant now thrive in the homes of mother’s grandchildren and great grandchildren. A lovely tradition for a desert flower. Beautiful poem.
