Water Over The Dam   Leave a comment

he stands by the shore

watching water

flow over the dam

from the little creek

now a lake

soon to be

a creek again —

a journey to ponder

. . . is it just water over the dam?

Yard Flowers (1 of 1)-2 art blogCaesalpinia pulcherrima, Red Bird of Paradise — Computer Painting by kenne

I HIDE myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too—
And angels know the rest.

I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness.

— Emily Dickinson

Douglas Spring Trail Panorama   Leave a comment

Douglas Springs HikeDouglas Spring Trail Panorama Image by kenne

In the moment you feel a
belonging to an ancient time,
a time not seen, yet you feel it —

the dryness of a land
parched, dying of thirst. 
Soon the trail switches back

and forth around large boulders
where lizards live in the dust
sometimes seen atop a boulder

doing their daily pushups
in the bright sunlight
soon returning to a dark place.

Stand here in the moment,
take yourself down the trail
toward the distant mountains.

The trail is narrow and dusty,
so narrow there are hikers
in front of you and behind,

not to your side, this is not 
a shoulder to shoulder march,
this is a hike in single file.

Having entered this picture
you can stay till the poem ends 
and the magic fades away.

For me, the photographer,
a part of me remains
poised in the moment.

Jim and Nancy Swickard purchased the 300-year-old Hacienda in 1989 and renovation became their obsession. Along with daughter Jamie, her husband Ramon their devotion to details has helped create a truly luxurious hideaway with a genuine flavor of Old Mexico. Without question, Hacienda de los Santos is the crown jewel of Alamos, one of Mexico’s most splendid colonial cities. Once you enter this colonial village, you’ll experience the feeling of a different age, the romanticism of Spain and the sweetness of Old Mexico.

“The philosophy of the populists was that you can’t have political democracy if you don’t have economic democracy. Justice Brandeis put it plainly: ‘You can have democracy in this country or you can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but you can’t have both.’ When I get a chance, I go out and talk about this thing, write about it, and preach about it.”

Merle Hansen, 74 (Newman Grove, Nebraska)
