The desert hides nothing,
Animal holes nakedly visible,
Plants, healthy to rotting,
Exhibitionists in transient state.
By age and height,
Saguaros tell the tallest tales.
A favorite is dying,
Harp like Interior spines
Vibrate against sky,
Fading lower body pales
Until a gasp of verdant limb
Salutes
Coronation flowers.

Saguaro Demise, oil on canvas, 24 in.w. by 48 in.h.
