Deserts Come and Deserts Go

Is it a desert, only time will tell,
a landscape between heaven and hell.
Every ten thousand years or so,
the ice will come, the ice then will go.

In one place the ocean throws water across the land,
another place flowers beyond numbers to count grow.
In time, only a desert will tell,
the span between heaven and hell.

When is a Tree Not a Tree?   2 comments

Wave Tree (1 of 1) B&W blogVermilion Cliffs National Monument In Northern Arizona — Image by kenne

Take a leaf off a tree. Is it still a tree?
Take a sin­gle twig off a tree. Is it still a tree?
Remove an entire branch from a tree. Is it still a tree?
Take off half of the branches. Is it still a tree?
Cut down the whole tree, leav­ing only the stump. Is it still a tree?
Many peo­ple would say no, it is no longer a tree,
though the roots may still be in the ground.
Well, where did the tree go?
Removing a leaf, it remains a tree,
but not by remov­ing all of the branches and the trunk?

In the real world, there aren’t any things as we com­monly think of them.
A ‘thing’ as we refer to it is only a noun. A noun is merely an idea, a men­tal con­struct.
These ‘things’ exist only in our minds. There is no tree, there is only the idea of a tree.

Two Red Rock Nuns

Looking at the two red rock pillars
with shades of red forming lines
shaded by the late afternoon sun.

The hump-backed moon rises
over the nuns distorted faces —
smeared red lips not desiring.

Centuries of decay at their feet
delivered by tears of benevolence
a token of good will everlasting.

A sky so blue, not to be bought
by any painter at any human price —
isn’t that, after all, left to the gods.
