hitting a high note



Watch the

dancing cactus

move,  oh

so smoothly and


wrap its

slender arms

around itself

in a graceful



striking  a

prickly pose

in joyous




See the

baby bumps

swell with



as mama


a brief

(but glorious)

shrill and frilly

jazz trumpet solo!

    What a great idea and celebration of the amazing cactus. There is something so unique about them. Great word play and writing.

    I enjoy cacti–of which there are many here in the desert. You’ve taught me that it’s worth while to look a bit closer.

    This brought me some smiles this morning – mama and babes. Curling flowers and beauty short lived. Well done!

    Cacti definitely are beautiful to behold….and especially when they bloom, they are worthy of a celebration for sure.
