Cacti 'forest'

"Forest" of cacti,
Sharp shadows grow,
Piercing the desert—
Needles of woe.

Great look at a forest most will never see, the cacti look soft and approachable - much like our cat. Better not pet this furry plant too hard...it may bite back!

I've never seen cacti like that! Great shot and haiku!

Norma Ruttan said...

that's one forest that I wouldn't care to walk through! however, great capture and a verse full of SHARP imagery.

What a lovely day...

We just started the dreary weather and hope no snow this coming weeks and it can wait till end of the year. LoL*

Happy SSS2 to all participants.

That's such a neat photo. The foreground looks hot, but the background looks cool.
