I am

Standing proud and solitary

Enduring the onslaught

Of wave after wave

For thousands of years

Never giving an inch

Recalcitrant in his stance

The rock


Bent and crippled

From the punishing winds

Attacked by snow and ice

For hundreds of years

But surviving against

All odds and hardships

The tree


Visible from afar

Reaching to the sky

Proud in its defiance

Of burning sun and drought

Persevering despite

Inhospitable environment

The Saguaro


I am Rock

I am Tree

I am Saguaro
