Desert Landscape — Image by kenne

“Alone in the silence, I understand for a moment the dread which many feel in the presence of primeval desert,
the unconscious fear which compels them to tame, alter or destroy what they cannot understand, to reduce the wild
and prehuman to human dimensions. Anything rather than confront directly the anti-human, that other world
which frightens not through danger or hostility but in something far worse – its implacable indifference.”

Edward Abbey

Cactus Blossom Art by kenne

I feel that a real living form is the natural result
of the individual’s effort to create the living thing
out of the adventure of his spirit into the unknown
— where it has experienced something — felt something —
it has not understood — and from that experience
comes the desire to make the unknown — known —

Making the unknown — known — in terms of one’s medium
is all absorbing — if you stop to think of form — as form
you are lost — The artist’s form must be inevitable — 
You mustn’t think you won’t succeed —

— Georgia O’Keeffe

Cactus Blossom –Photo-Artistry by kenne

Cactus Flower

Sun, glare, heat, sweat

Dry, hot, summer, parched

Thirst

Brightly colored blossoms excite, invite

Gems

Longing for a hug

Not emotionally available

Sage green so tall and free, yet not a tree

Blooming high towards the desert sky

Far out of reach, not open to being that close

Pining for snuggles

Spikes

Burning desire to reciprocate your grandeur, but you don’t answer

Thorns

Glorious beauty

Why why why not for me?

Someday

Will I ever be, your bee?

Life in a flower

Just a brief moment in time

So life can move on.

I wait for the moment
I’ll return to the trails
as I did for twelve years
beneath Tucson’s blue sky
in some world of youth
and springtime. Give me,
Powers of the Universe,
the springtime but
spare me the child.

Hedgehog Cactus (genus Echinocereus) Blossoms — Image by kenne

The hedgehog cactus earned its name because its short, spiny stems resemble hedgehogs.
The blossoms last for five days, opening in the morning and closing at night.

Most people, when asked to identify a yellow spring flower would probably identify daffodils.
But, in the sunny Tucson area, most people would say the prickly pear cactus blossom,
or the palo verde blossoms.

Yellow is a warm and friendly color and most associated with is the sun. During spring,
it almost seems like the sun changes its light from a cold white to a warm and glowy yellow.

Quote From The Four Winds   Leave a comment

“As we know, there are lessons to be learned from history.
Hope to be derived from hardships faced before.
We’ve gone through bad times before and survived, even thrived.
History has shown us the strength and durability of the human spirit,
In the end, it is our idealism and our courage, and our commitment to one another
–what we have in common–that will save us.”

— from “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah

Grows too slow to be noticed

Until it’s springtime.
