The White Dove Of The Desert

Imagine this:

Stranger
On horseback

Dark flowing rode
Moving in the breeze

Crossing
The desert southwest

Entering
The village of the

Desert people –
Tohono O’odham

Friendly people

Bonding
With the stranger –

Father Kino
Jesuit priest

Establishing
Third mission —

(Twenty-four total)

Upon which
The current church

Was built
Century later

Reflecting
Baroque architecture

Blossoming
In the desert blue sky

The White Dove
Of the Desert.

  1. Such a beautiful setting around this Mission – really stunning panorama at the top too. I feel I have been here before in so many movies etc and had me looking for the ‘three amigos’ in the photos. I am realy enjoying your photography – very much!

  2. The first time I was there was in 1968 and several times since moving to Tucson three years ago — It’s always impressive! Thanks for the comment.
