Dying Saguaro in Bloom

Saguaro Demise

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
Coronation flowers.

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