A year and a half without food and water. I hope the plant society never hears about this.

A Room Filled with Screams

By Scott D. Zachary
Copyright 2004

Who knows how it happened?
I don’t; nor do they.
Maybe in one fell-swoop he dropped;
Perhaps he was nudged over a period of time.

Nevertheless, he was unknowingly sentenced
To a life without appreciable sustenance.
Possibly the anti-cactae clan conspired,
Cloaked in their hooded anti-prickles.

We’ll probably never know,
But there he lay behind my desk.
Only a hint of life remained.
I should have heard his undeafening screams.

But, no. I was too concerned with my book
And my lifeless programs.
Now my little green buddy thrives,
Living like a king on top of my coffee pot.

Cute. It's a good thing cacti are pretty forgiving! Thanks for the smile.

Cacti survive in the strangest ways! It'll be fine--just wait and see. This was great, dear! Sometimes we really should listen closer. b

This is sooo cute, Scott. Plants do seem to thrive when given a bit of TLC and a place of importance. No Joke! ~~Bonnie Q

You got me right up to the end Scott! Excellent write/read, I save this one! I have one more thing to say:"I think you need another Corona & don't forget that slice of lime!" Have one on me, you deserve it...Peace, Ed & Rufuz (aka Woofie)

This is one of those writes that could be read more then one way. In my apartment there are no more screams. I got fake plants until I find a home where plants are happy :-)
