Sunset Over The Tucson Mountains   Leave a comment

Sunset Over The Tucson Mountains — Image by kenne

I look at a sunset

and begin to wonder

what is the relationship

between the senses

and matters of beauty,

art and taste responding

one’s feelings and emotions?

The quality of being.

Black Mountains Geological Contrasts   Leave a comment

Black Mountains, Arizona Geological Contrasts — Image by kenne

 
I was standing on the highest mountain of them all,
and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world.
And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and
I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a
sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit,
and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.
And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops
that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight,
and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter
all children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.

“Clouds come floating into my life,

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,

but to add color to my sunset sky.”

A Morning Walk In The Canyon   3 comments

Lower Sabino Canyon Panorama (October 5, 2022) — Photomerge by kenne

I walk alone in the early morning
heading up a canyon trail
toward the mountains; the dust
rises from my steps better defining
the trail for hikers to follow.
The saguaros along the trail
reach the sky from the basin floor

as hikers pass by soon to return
to avoid the midday heat —
what were you expecting?
For the day does not hover,
not even for a moment
as the sun rises overhead,
the scars of my hiking remain
embedded in my thoughts
refusing to grow feeble, just old.

Doubtful Canyon Signpost — Panorama by kenne

A lonely sign
on the hill
has no
directions
if it did
we would
be doubtful.

Tucson/Avra Valley Aquifer — Panorama by kenne

The Tucson Mountains separate the Avra Valley and the Tucson Basin, which contain natural aquifers.
Recharge basins have been placed in the Avra Valley, where Colorado River water is blended with the groundwater,
providing water to the Tucson area.
This panorama is at the west edge of the Tucson Mountains where the recharge basins can be seen in the distance. 

 

Wild Burro Canyon In The Tortolita Mountains   1 comment

Wild Burro Canyon In The Tortolita Mountains (March 12, 2012) — Panorama Created By Merging Three Photos By kenne

These mountains were home to the Hohokam (550 to 1540 A.D.) as evidenced by the amazing petroglyphs carved into rocks throughout the range. We also know that Spanish explorers sought mineral riches for their crown in the 1540s, and there was a short-lived mining boom in the 1860s.

I will see you at the rock,

the rock at the pass —

not till you are lost,

then you will find me

by the river 

sitting on the rock.

You starting point will be

the mystery of my loneliness.
