In the Desert

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”

“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

— Stephen Crane

Three Cochise Stronghold Panoramas by kenne

Cochise Stronghold is located west of Sunsites, Arizona, in the Dragoon Mountains at an elevation of 5,000 ft. 
This beautiful woodland area lies in a protective rampart of granite domes and sheer cliffs, once the refuge
of the great Apache Chief, Cochise, and his people.  Located within the Coronado National Forest, it is managed
by the Douglas Ranger District. — Source:

Having a Beer in the Shade Outside the Oldest Dance Hall In Texas, Gruene Hall (June 2007) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Where have the days gone?

Now it’s less beer, more whiskey

Easing aches and pains.

“What whiskey will not cure, there is no cure for.”

Cactus in the Sonoran desert
Appear to take turns blooming
So there are cactus flowers in bloom
Year-round in this beautiful land.

Corvette Raffle At Festival   Leave a comment

Corvette Raffle at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church Tucson Greek Festival — Image by kenne

With so many leaves, the sun waves good day
with many stands shines, shines the sky
and those ones inn irons and those others are in the earth.

Quiet anytime now, the church bells will signal.

This earth is theirs and ours.

Beneath the earth in their crossed arms
they hold the rope of the church bells,
they are awaiting the hour, waiting to signal the resurrection
this earth is theirs and ours
no one can take it from us

Quiet anytime now, the church bells will signal.

— from The Church Bells Will Signal by Yiannis Ritsos

Grilling On New Year’s Day   Leave a comment

Kenne David Turner Grilling On His Birthday, January 1st — Image by kenne

“This sandgrain day in the bent bay’s grave
      He celebrates and spurns
   His driftwood forty-eighth wind turned age;
      Herons spire and spear.”
