Desert Silhouette

A dead saguaro

Stands silhouetted

Against the morning sky

A darken symbol of life

As a lone hiker looks up

From the trail below

Still in the canyon shadow

Pondering the meaning

Of this dark creature

As shadows move

Down the canyon walls

Vanishing the silhouette

And any creature thoughts

Only to leave behind

The remains of what was

A Sonoran desert giant.
