“Bones” of a long-dead saguaro cactus, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona.
Hush your scolding, crow!
Leave these bleaching bones in peace

Two saguaro cacti seem to be battling each other at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Southern Arizona
Sometimes in this world you see things that are strange.
I once saw two cactuses out on the range,
And swear they were punching out each other’s lights—
It was one of those weird and wonderful sights.
I wonder if that’s the way things go on Earth:
Contentions beginning the moment of birth.
Does anyone think that all warring will cease,
So all of Earth’s creatures can revel in peace?
