The wheel cactus

(Opuntia robusta)

These cactus do not belong;
crowd here…
exclude plants who have sung
their seeds into being
for hundreds of thousands of years.

These cactus are recently arrived
prickly beasts able to conquer
terrain; gather territory like a river,
stand in sun and rain – regardless
the cold cannot penetrate.

Their thick hide protects;
they have learned how to survive
to the detriment of others.

I really enjoyed reading it Danny. Some people are really like that, nothing can crack them inside. Last three lines are my favorite
