Takes your breath away.

There are places
created for all deities,
poorly translated

Nature’s Stairway to Heaven   3 comments

Temples and towers
Nature’s stairway to heaven
With white angel wings.

In this promised land
A desert sanctuary —
Music of waters.

Navajo sandstone
Majestic cliffs of color
Carved by rain fingers.

I didn’t realize how much I needed a “Diunna Fix” till I was out doing a morning walk listening to my iTunes music. I like to shuffle through the music, when “Growing Up and Growing Old” (On the CD, Trying To Hold On) started playing, which is one of my favorite Blues/Gospel tunes. I knew then, I would be listening to more Diunna today.

We are pleased to have known Diunna for about twenty years. Joy and I consider her a very close friend. And when it comes to singing the Blues, there’s none better. Here’s another video from the same show, in case you also need a “Diunna Fix.” Get a load of Jonn’s guitar playing need the end of this video, the Del Toro really comes out!

Often unnoticed flowers —
Our desert jewels.

I attend to this moment
less it goes unattended
by the bee flying
in and out of time
only to be lost in a
wild thyme unseen
just to be conquered 
and reconciled again.
