Cactus Blossom –Photo-Artistry by kenne

Cactus Flower

Sun, glare, heat, sweat

Dry, hot, summer, parched


Brightly colored blossoms excite, invite


Longing for a hug

Not emotionally available

Sage green so tall and free, yet not a tree

Blooming high towards the desert sky

Far out of reach, not open to being that close

Pining for snuggles


Burning desire to reciprocate your grandeur, but you don’t answer


Glorious beauty

Why why why not for me?


Will I ever be, your bee?

— Michelethe Trainer

Quote From The Four Winds   Leave a comment

“As we know, there are lessons to be learned from history.
Hope to be derived from hardships faced before.
We’ve gone through bad times before and survived, even thrived.
History has shown us the strength and durability of the human spirit,
In the end, it is our idealism and our courage, and our commitment to one another
–what we have in common–that will save us.”

— from “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah

Morning Cactus FlowerCactus Flower — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“I feel that a real living form is the natural result
of the individual’s effort to create the living thing
out of the adventure of his spirit into the unknown —
it has where experienced something — felt something —
it has not understood — and from that experience
comes the desire to make the unknown — known —

Making the unknown — known — in terms of one’s medium
is all-absorbing — if you stop to think of the form — as form
you are lost — The artist’s form must be inevitable —
You mustn’t think you won’t succeed –“

— Georgia O’Keeffe in a letter to Sherwood Anderson, 1923

Cactus flower 98
could have been 
102, or 
any other number —
I just like the way
98 sounds.

Flowers are not meant
to last forever,
so we cherish
the moments.

Most cactus flowers
last only a day
leaving behind
beautiful memories

for those fortunate
to gaze  upon them
in the early
morning sun

while others
share the moment
what they see.
