“. . . the truth is that as soon as you start walking,

all that noise, all those rumours, fade out.

What’s new? Nothing:

the calm eternity of things, endlessly renewed.”

“So beautiful of course compared
with what a man looks like
with his two bags full
and his other thing
hanging down out of him
or sticking up at you like a hatrack
no wonder they hide it with a cabbageleaf.”

This unusual growth on a prickly pear pad caught our attention while hiking in Sabino Canyon yesterday.
