in the wilderness
a hundred thousand voices
cactus is but one

  1. Beautiful and profound. 🙂

    Have you ever noticed how chatty the chollas are? So friendly too despite their prickly nature.

  3. Cactus is a commanding voice! But if I ever get to the desert, I will listen for the others, just as I do in life. A fine allegory!

  4. Love all those thousand voices and the special one too. Nice.

  5. I would love to listen to the voices of the desert……..

  6. Beautiful!💞

  7. A fine allegory indeed – we are all that one, often lost in those hundred thousand voices.

    A cactus has all the strength to survive the odds, perhaps!


  9. With our disregard to the health of the planet perhaps we should start trying to store water within us for the hard times to come. We may have to bury our feet in the sand and not waste energy on running around.

  10. You must listen carefully, and sometimes long to hear the cactus speak!

  11. A pretty shot…Cholla is nice to looks at, but keep your distance!

  12. Beautiful light in this shot.

  13. Lovely cactus and sky shot! ~ great haiku too!

    Happy Weekend to you,
