Their movement is slow

Blending in with dead branches

Our presence ignored.

A Son’s Dreams (Kenne David Turner Fishing On A Lake Conroe Pier In The Early 1980s) — Image by kenne

It didn’t matter
that no fish
would be caught —
only he and I knew
there is nothing
on the end
of the line,
but he can dream,
can’t he?

Day comes to an end

Sunset over the mountains

Darkness moves slowly.

Undoing the Ocotillo   1 comment

Ocotillo Blossom — Photo-Artistry by kenne

men are coming inland to you
soon they will make you the last resort
for tourists who have
nowhere else to go
what will become of the coyote
with eyes of topaz
moving silently to his undoing
the ocotillo
flagellant of the wind
the deer climbing with dignity
further into the mountains

       what will become of those who cannot learn

the terrible knowledge of cities

— from “Requiem for Sonora” by Richard Shelton

“Humankind has not learned about balance, let alone practiced it.
It is guided by greed and ambition, steered by fear.
In this way, it will eventually destroy itself.
But nature will survive; at least the plants will.”

Mourning Doves Looking For A Nest Building Place   1 comment

Mourning Doves Looking For A Nest Building Place — Image by kenne

“The mourning dove is a carrier of faith and love. Whenever I am faced with the storms of life,
I don’t have to fret because peace and protection are assured.

This peaceful spirit can call upon the tranquillity around me in times of stress or uncertainty.”

The poem and music bring back a lot of fond memories.


Wild heart

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
" Taking chances, writing in different directions. "

1- We were naked, we twisted our bodies into a unfinished puzzle and we shared wild dreams.
We talked and we used twisted words.
Did we show real face, did we do, just enough?


2- We knew the thirst,
we pledged broken promises and I saw broken skin.
I kissed sacred scars and I made you smile.
Was dead midnight and we did the liar’s prayer.


Kelli, skin so smoothed, so sweet.
You wanted the moon and I wanted your kiss.
You were wild fire and I was quiet lake.
In dreams, our loved lived and I remember the most beautiful girl, I ever knew.

So true!

Intellectual Shaman

the leader

doesn’t know where his followers have gone

he walked too far into the desert

he said too many wrong things

many of his followers died (they were retirement age)

he should have recruited young girls

but it’s too difficult to stimulate them with words

he’s competing with:


men who drive BMWs

and TikTok.

It’s time to end this poem.
