Western Window On The Past   Leave a comment

Peloncillo MountainsWestern Window On the Past — Image by kenne

The wind moves unnoticed through the window
like the memory of forgotten times
punctuated by years of drought
where water no longer moves
atop the creek beds, and cattle no longer roam,
each not sustainable in the basin
below the Peloncillo Mountains
where desert bushes and cactus
have replaced the grasslands
near Doubtful Pass trail once used by
the Butterfield Overland Stagecoach Company.

by the storm

blowed against

a bolder wall

aged by the sun

now gray and white —

old and broken

but still alive.

The sparrows are preparing for winter,
each one dressed in a plain brown coat
and singing a cheerful song.

The Light

is no more outside the window, or
on the walls. All that was dissolves.

I watch the lights of evening
flicker across the way

as moths flutter near the
lights of limited space

in an unlimited world
brushing up against the darkness.

What is art?
What is life?
What is time?

I know, but
when you ask me
I don’t.

To define
is to fix
in place,

in real life
is fixed.

To communicate with earth,

converse with spirits,

to report the vortex,

link with the omens of time,

and recurrent images —

a moment in and out of time.

Red Rock Country Panorama — My Actual Prove   1 comment

Red Rock Panorama (1 of 1) blogRed Rock Country Panorama (June 15, 2015) — Image by kenne

This panorama was taken at the base of Cathedral Rock looking east at incredible formations containing over 300 million years of geological history.

If you have the slightest addiction to photography, it’s easy to overdose in the Sedona/Oak Creek area of the Coconino National Forest — I did!

I just returned from several days in one of the most spiritual places on earth, a place I can contemplate nature and be in communication with other living things — try it, you will like and the force will help you learn to love it.

My actual prove,

Red is the color of earth —

So, what’s not to love!

of these mountains
are no match against

the mighty river.
Weary of its motion

they open to
potent penetration.

Female Desert Tortoise   4 comments

It’s spring.

Yellow wildflowers

dot the desert


Strong winds

 rain dusk

down on her.

She moves

at her own pace,


Having stored his sperm

from a casual meeting

last fall,

she carefully 

selects a place —


in the dry

desert soil


a clutch of eggs.
