Cloud-line Panorama blog-.jpgHaze and Cloud-line, More Humidity In the Air — Panorama by kenne

I was up on Mt. Lemmon today, where they are not allowing any outdoor fires at campsites because the Santa Catalina Mountains are so very dry. Even though it was a hazy day, I took the panorama with the haze and cloud-line showing how moisture is beginning to move into southern Arizona. Hopefully, we will start to see some rain by mid-June.

Nature is a sphere
Revealing cosmic patterns
In all the clutter.

There’s a place on Mt. Lemmon
where peace and wisdom lies
along the trails under towering trees
one can find silent knowledge
and contemplate the void in its
stillness as life goes about changing.

wildflowers lined mountain trails
now winter abounds.

On Top

All this new stuff goes on top
turn it over, turn it over
wait and water down
from the dark bottom
turn it inside out
let it spread through
Sift down even.
Watch it sprout.

A mind like compost.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

— from “Do not go gentle into that good night” by Dylan Thomas

Rain Drops On Autumn Leaves   Leave a comment

Bear Waller Oct 2013-8165 III blogRain Drops On Autumn Leaves — Image by kenne

there’s a dry cold air

remaining after a dawn rain

in the high desert mountains

not cold enough to snow

yet cold enough

to send a chill

throughout your body

the morning sunrise guides light

inside the dark forest

just ahead of a morning jogger

following a trail

forming a seam

across the forest floor

carpeted with leaves

of red and gold

dotted with raindrops

appearing to jump

as the returning light 

glimmers through 

each temporary dome

soon to disappear

beneath a winter blanket of snow
