Rubble of Yesterday…#326   Leave a comment

The Last Chapter

Image result for images rubble of yesterday

Promises of the mind set aside 
in the days of youth; visions 
stored in a hopeful place to 
become dim memories and 
fade away.  A glimpse into 
the window of twilight time 
lays the tombstones of 
yesteryear’s promises; rubble 
covered with reminiscent vine.

Embers burn within the soul 
no peace can one find; there 
are fewer tomorrows, weep 
for the uncertainty of the 
future and of dreams left 
behind.  If you could turn 
back time would you trust 
your heart to relive your life, 
accepting the future whatever
 it may be, would you disregard 
truth and trust what your eyes 
see?

Yesterday’s promises are hidden 
dreams, try to find new excitement 
in your life, rid yourself of turmoil 
and strife. Awaken your consciousness, 
your journey is not over, there are 
new mountains to climb, forget the 
rubble of yesterday, wisely use your 
time.

Sharing their knowledge
Looking in the direction
They expect to go.

Borrowing years of living
To guide them forward.

“. . . before the morning watch when time stops and time is never-ending” — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

Sedona & Talking Stick Resort“Wheel Stuck In Time” — Image by kenne

The tolling bell
Measures time not our time, rung by the unhurried
Ground swell, a time
Older than the time of chronometers, older
Than time counted by anxious worried women
Lying awake, calculating the future,
Trying to unweave, unwind, unravel
And piece together the past and the future,
Between midnight and dawn, when the past is all deception,
The future futureless, before the morning watch
When time stops and time is never ending

— from T.S. Eliot’s “The Dry Salvages”

Springtime In Picacio Peak State Park   Leave a comment

Picacio Peak State Park — Image by kenne

“In 1848, the Mormon Battalion constructed a wagon road through Picacho Pass. The forty-niners on their way
to California used this road. In the late 1850’s the Butterfield Overland Stage was carrying passengers through
this area. Picacho Peak’s most noted historic event occurred on April 15, 1862, when Confederate and Union
scouting parties met in the Battle of Picacho Pass during the Civil War. This was the largest Civil War clash to
take place in Arizona.”

Desert Grass   Leave a comment

Desert Grass — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In the grass
the cactus, with hair-like spines,
irritate the skin upon touch.
Spring flowers have withered again
in silence, the desert awaits 
the hours of great sorrow
and travail.

Chaos — Abstract Art by kenne

I’m not sure the words ocean and sea
mean the same to you and me.
Ninety-five percent universal confusion,
dark matter was born with the legitimacy
of an onion, the roar of a lion.
I sit in the rumble seat of judgment,
I damn myself for entertainment,
for wasting time on hopeless entertainment.
I am guilty of snarling lines, Gordian
knots in my “Shakespeare” fishing reels.
I must untangle this because eels
have hearts like us. The enemy
is symmetry.
In the spring of content,
I trust glorious chaos. I smell in disorder
the outhouse of order.

— from Chaos by Stanley Moss

Morning In The Canyon   Leave a comment

Morning In The Canyon (Pima Canyon) — Image by kenne

Daylight comes earlier

with each passing day

I dress in translucent light

as the fading shadows 

of night slowly move on.

I will leave soon to hike

in a nearby canyon

still, I pause taking time

to read poetry before leaving

preparing my thoughts

to be with nature.

March 2015 Flowers In Our Desert Yard — Images by kenne (See on Flickr)


This blog frequently posts images of wildflowers in the Sonoran desert,
to the neglect of domestic flowers in our yard.
So, it’s their turn to be shared.
What’s not to love about flowers, domestic or wild?

Spring flowers abound

Opening in the sunlight

Keeping us spellbound.
