What Do You Call A Group Of Saguaros?   1 comment

The previous posting (100 Year-Old Cliff Dwellershowed a photograph of a giant saguaro cactus all alone on a steep cliff. Its location was unusual, but given that most saguaros start life under a bush, i.e., a creosote, or a tree, i.e., palo verde and mesquite, making its existence very impressive. Equally impressive is locating a group of saguaros protected by both mesquite and palo verde trees, which begged the question, “What do you call a group of saguaros?” Tribe? Legion? Family? Thicket? Grove? Clump? Gang? Clan? Bunch? Band? Coterie? Whatever, even researching the question didn’t give us an answer. So, for now, you can choose. Given the Tohono O’odham Nation, or Desert People’s cultural connection to the saguaro, I choose “tribe.”

The Yellow-Tree Road

Resembling

diminutive fires;

blooming

on green sticks (Palo Verde);

setting

the desert a glow;

converging

roads in a sea of yellow;

alluring

sweet winds;

moving

desert naturalness;

knowing

the road less traveled.
