WINNER OF THE POETRY MONTH CONTEST ON THE STORYTELLER'S SCROLL


I'd like to congratulate Michelle Heidenrich Barnes as the winner of The Giant Saguaro Poetry Contest. SHe will receive an Amazon gift card from THe Storyteller's Scroll.

Here is her winning entry.
Happy Poetry Month.


Mighty Saguaro

Mighty saguaro!
Defender of calm—
woodpecker’s beat and coyote’s song.

Giant saguaro!
Sixty feet tall—
proud desert hero, protector of all.

Fearless saguaro!
Silent, yet strong—
arms poised for action should something go wrong.

Noble saguaro!
Imposing you stand—
benevolent king throughout the land.
