A walk through the shops

You can find most anything

Very organic.

“Do stuff.
Be clenched, curious.

Not waiting for inspiration’s shove
or society’s kiss on your forehead.
Pay attention.
It’s all about paying attention.
Attention is vitality.
It connects you with others.
It makes you eager. stay eager.”

― Susan Sontag

 

We Walk On An Unsilvered Mirror   Leave a comment

Puerto Penasco Sunset — Photo-Artistry by kenne


Earth

We walk on
an unsilvered
mirror,
a crystal surface
without clouds.
If lilies would grow
backwards,
if roses would grow
backwards,
if all those roots
could see the stars
and the dead not close
their eyes,
we would become like swans.

— Federico García Lorca

The sea,

once it casts its spell,

holds one in its net forever.

Nogales“Death” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

His eyes did not close
When he saw the horns near,
But the terrible mothers
Lifted their heads.
And across the ranches
Went a breath of secret voices
By which the herdsmen of the pallid mist
Called to their heavenly bulls.

— from Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Mejias by Federico García Lorca

 

 

Great Tail Grackle   1 comment

Great Tailed Grackle-72.jpgGreat Tail Grackle (Playa del Carman) — Image by kenne

The grackle’s voice is less than mellow,
His heart is black, his eye is yellow,
He bullies more attractive birds
With hoodlum deeds and vulgar words,
And should a human interfere,
Attacks that human in the rear.
I cannot help but deem the grackle
An ornithological debacle. 

— Ogden Nash

A Jungle Excursion   Leave a comment

Lizards-8-72After a few days on the beach, the jungle on down the shoreline peaked my interest,
so I left the beach scenery for the jungle scenery.

Lizards-6-72It wasn’t long before the shoreline became challenging big boulders alone the shore inhabited by a lot of lizards.
(Note the lizard on the near boulder.)

Lizards-5-72As I climbed over the boulders I kept looking for a path into the jungle. 

Lizards-7-72Finally there was an opening, but not much of a path.

Jungle-72In addition to thick growth and debris, there was a fence adding to my passage into the jungle.
Other than seeing a lot of lizards, my attempt to go into the the jungle on my own was uneventful.
So, I headed back to the beach scene.

Fly silly sea bird, no dreams can possess you,

no voices can blame you for sun on your wings.
