Love Poem: Ode to a Cactus Flower

This was my very first post last year, on my Poetry website “Martha’s Garden” … it is a “love poem” for a cactus blossom…I thought it was fitting for today’s prompt…

Martha's Garden

Camel of the plant world
From your flattened body, waxed with thorn
A brilliant blossom is unfurled
The promise of new life reborn.
Who would know that you– wild, unbridled sprite
Could spring from the driest, dusty spaces
Others, ‘though more ‘cultivated’-your beauty vexes-
Your exaltation ‘exiled’ to the desert out of spite
‘Magnificence’ found in the least expected places-
yet “uncrowned” truly you are the…“Yellow Rose of Texas”
