Colors give life

to that without

motion —

but what is existence

without motion,

locked in time

forever!

Earth, Sky and Tumacácori   Leave a comment

Nogales“Earth, Sky and Tumacácori” — Photo Artistry 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.

Have You Hugged Your Saguaro Today?   1 comment

Becoming is Superior to Being

Wasson Peak 01-30-12

Two gentle old giants
born in the caring shadows
of a nursing tree.

Protected for years
only to outlive their nurse
two towers as one.

Reaching to the sky
sharing the good times and bad
In their silent talk.

Each bonding for life
in their spring bonnets of white
sharing life’s cycles.

As the years go by
well over a century
many suns and stars.

Aging gracefully
one bearing more than her peer
showing signs of time.

One still standing tall
holding out a caring arm
together as one.

She ain’t to heavy
Doesn’t weigh me down at all
She is my sister

Have you hugged your saguaro today?

Saguaro Cactus Blossoms   1 comment

Green Mountain, Saguaro, MissionSaguaro Cactus Blossoms — Image by kenne

Arizona’s state flower, the saguaro blossom, has a strong overripe melons smell, but I’m not going to get close enough to check it out — will leave that to the experts. Like a lot of cactus flowers, they are short-lived, blooming at night and often closed within 24 hours. During the night the flowers are pollinated by the lesser long-nosed bat and the Mexican long-tongued bat. During the daytime the flowers are pollinated by bees and birds such as the white-winged dove.

. . . ?

coffee
dripping
on the muffin

frogs
singing
refuse to jump

blues
crying
hot all around

skin
decaying
long forgotten

result
correcting
reset questioned

hubble
looking
big-bang theory

verdict
hiding
in the fine print

whiskey
swallowing
barely enough

head
watching
monkey in zoo

spring
existing
‘tween hot and cold

high
soaring
broken wing bird

life
questioning
tomorrow’s dead

fever
draining
tomorrow’s strength

depleted
circling
cup still half full

A door is just a door

‘til you walk

through a door

in the desert southwest —

each is a book cover

for classic stories of the life.
