“It’s Just A Cloud Thing” Clouds Over the Santa Catalina Mountains (March 20, 2015) — Images by kenne
I love to watch them
Building above the mountains,
It’s just a cloud thing.

. . . listen like a mountain
listen like saguaros listening
to cactus wrens, coyotes, night
owl: listen like the owl
listen like the owl’s prey
jittery in rocks beneath bighorn’s
clocking feet: listen to the clock
listen to time, listen
to rattler’s warning maracas
listen, like the culebra, with
your tongues . . .
to the hymn of it, the lie of it, the
prayer of it, the voices
singing our names: listen
it’s our story, it’s our song,
you’ve got to hear it —
– from Listen, by Luis Alberto Urrea

Picture framed moment
The present is now the past
Looking back in time

Parish Larkspur WIldflower Images by kenne
Conditions for wildflowers are much better this spring than last year.
Yesterday (March 20, 2015) we saw several parish larkspur along the Bear Canyon trail at about 2,700 ft.
There were many, at first glance I thought they were lupines.
Last year I posted images of a single parish larkspur April 16th near Hutche’s Pool (3,900 ft.)

Running down mountains
A shadow of once what was
There above the dam.
