A Many-Armed Saguaro Cactus (Sabino Canyon) — Image by kenne

Mighty Saguaro

Saguaro cacti rise up like mighty sentinels 
boldly claiming the high desert plains
tall and proud, their prickly arms
forewarn intruders to stop and beware.

A daunting presence, bold and majestic
toughness flows through their cacti veins
Saguaro endure long hours in the barren wilderness 
their roots persevere under the dry, hard crust.

With no respite, save for the night
Saguaro rule valiantly in a god forsaken land.
