Southern California September 2012Whimsical Butterfly — Photo-Artistry by kenne

There’s a naked butterfly
With black and yellow wings
On a yellow body attracted to
Hidden wonders when rain
Washes away desert dust
Letting the world change —
I’m happy to watch the wind.

Be empty.
Be still.
Watch everything
come and go.

This is the way
of Nature.

“When the sun sets, 
or the moon goes down,
it looks like the end.
It seems like a sunset,
but really,
it is dawn.”

Sandpipers 

Sandland where the salt water kills the sweet potatoes.
Homes for sandpipers-the script of their feet is on the sea shingles —
they write in the morning,
it is gone at noon-they write at noon,
it is gone at night.
Pity the land, the sea,
the ten mile flats,
pity anything but the sandpiper’s wire legs and feet.
— Carl Sandburg

“I discovered in nature the nonutilitarian delights that I sought in art.
Both were a form of magic, both were a game of intricate enchantment and deception.”

We walk
the lower canyon
after spring rains.
The creek
runs swiftly 
from
mountain snow pelt.

Cottonwoods
beginning to leaf,

wildflowers
cover the ground —

a new cycle of life.
