Though life abounds with blossoms bright, fed and watered, nurtured right; And trees along the river bank, strengthened so, display their might, Saguaro, YOU surprise me most and give the desert dwellers hope.
Alone, you stand in arid sands without your roots in greener lands, yet strong and tall and bright, command my respect and awe.
Deep inside your prickly skin, you've stored life's sunshine deep within; Though scarce the raindrops from the sky, you've captured each and treasured, "MY!" If I could be like you, what heights I would achieve. And revel in acceptance that, like you, I'm planted right where I should be.
