Flaming thorns - Poems on Cacti.

I clicked these amazing cacti at a nursery I visited in the recent past. The astounding host of colors inspired some verses I've penned below.

Beauty is abound
in fiery flames
of thorny hue;

Learning is profound
in prickly pins,
life lessons anew;

Pleasure is found
in throbbing throes 
of searing pain too...

A world ablaze 
in vibrant colors,
of peppermint pink & yellow;

Green thumbs gaze 
in cutesy collars,
 pretty peaks glitter & glow;

Risen without a faze
sans a holler,
in tempest, hail or snow.
