It takes long

It takes long ,
really long
for a Cactus to bloom ,
in the dry , hot
sands of deserts ,
amidst thorns
and inhospitable winds ,
where living
is a matter of chance ,
left to vagaries of hope ,
but when it does bloom
heavens descend
to feast on
the purple , pink ,
the flaming red
and O so many colors
as though
the heat and dust
did not exist .
