Earth, Sky And Padre Kino   2 comments

Nogales“Earth, Sky and Tumacácori” — Image by kenne

A priestly man
once traveled
the desert southwest

mounted a horse
armed only with love
a force without
a presidio of soldiers

connecting with people
of many tribes

building adobe missions
each opened to the morning sun
located within walking distance
understanding the desert paradox.
