Clouds But No Monsoon, Yet — Image by kenne

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

View Off Wilderness Rocks Trail in the Santa Catalina Mountains (08/08/14) — Image by kenne

In a tangle of cliffs, I chose a place –
Bird paths, but no trails for me.
What’s beyond the yard?
White clouds clinging to vague rocks.
Now I’ve lived here – how many years –
Again and again, spring and winter pass.
Go tell families with silverware and cars
“What’s the use of all that noise and money?”

Han-shan, Cold Mountain Poems Translated by Gary Snyder

Happiness — Image by kenne

I remember sitting there looking out over the valley,
there was such a sense of circumstance.
You know, that feeling that this is happiness.
It was the moment, right then.

Where Am I?   2 comments

Abstract Art by kenne

Where am I?

Where do I want to be?

Is more effort needed?

An assessment
may create more questions,
in an upside-down world
where the normal order
is reversed.

Effort is good,
but too much is bad.
Can the key to life
be knowing how much effort
is enough?

“The more I try to stay
on top of water
the more I sink,
but when I try to sink,
I float.”

Life Turned Around   3 comments

Turned Around — Image by kenne

Turned around,
Here am I.
Knowing how,
Not the why.

Young in heart
Old in age.
Feeling the itch,
Pacing the cage.

Inner peace,
Knowing the thou.
Learning to write
Thesis of now.

Turned around,
Found love.
Living the moment,
Free as a dove.

Still learning,
When to talk.
Listening for,
Beat of the walk.

Reality is now,
Truth in the heart.
Singing the knowledge,
Requiem to smart.

Turned around,
Found beauty in art.
Traveling the future,
With Dylan and Descartes

The Hanging Tree   2 comments

The Hanging Tree — Photo-Artistry by kenne

 
Morning walks where dead trees 
take on a new life near the trail
by the Tanque Verde wash.
 
Falling limbs are collected 
always searching for a design
transforming life in a new way.
 
A treasure awaits the hiker 
in a state of things recovered
only the eye of the wise can see.
 
Make the invisible become visible
breaking the pact with the unseen
each day’s magic moment.

E San Francisco Street In Santa Fe   Leave a comment

Photo-Artistry by kenne

The Camera Shop near the corner of Old Santa Fe Trail and E San Francisco Street across from the La Fonda Hotel
was opened in 1937 by Gene Autry. The building is now part of the corner property owned by Ortega & Sons Inc.

The camera shop
The sign says closed, or is it
It’s a mystery.

Questions still remain
Where have all the pictures gone

Memories of old.

Elementary School Class In Sabino Canyon (February, 2012) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Since March of 2020 Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) have not bee working with students on field trips
in the Tucson area. We are hoping to start offering nature classes again this fall. Meanwhile, SCVN has developed
a series of videos called The Canyon Classroom covering some of the “Fun Facts” covering the history, geology,
ecology, and wildlife of Sabino Canyon.
