Spikes

I won't daresay a word again, dear
as Cactus just don't grow in watery ground

whatever I do, my caresses too, I fear
a pity, it turns out as swords in a second

How incredible the power of valour
That in the battle field of a lonely arid desert
Could strive a Cactus adorning its prickly cover

But how astounding the power of the heart
That from the malignant thorns of pain
Could blossom a Rose as beautiful as art

Flattered !!

I am a warrior who don't give up.

It seems you are describing what sometimes words to do to us. They look innocuous but tear at out guts.

Just my feeling...

Very pretty colored cactus blooms. Wouldn`t that color look nice sitting along beside my yellow blooms when they are open. I have a few cactus plants, but only one has blossomed with beautiful yellow blooms. Hope it blossoms again this year when summer arrives. I am hoping my christmas cactus will someday also blossom. Not sure how old it has to be before it will start to blossom. One of these days I will look it up on the net to find out.
