Taliesin West, Home of The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Scottsdale, Arizona — Panorama by kenne

“No house should ever be on a hill or on anything.
It should be of the hill. Belonging to it.
Hill and house should live together with each the happier for the other.”

– Frank Lloyd Wright

Clouds under a blue sky

The Trail Is Dusty   Leave a comment

West of Tucson — Panorama Image by kenne

The trail is dusty
Stirred only by our steps,
A soft breeze unable to lift
The dust above our boots

Often coming together as strangers
Sharing a love of the wild
And a desire to hear sounds
In nature’s best.

Nature walks are fine
Surrounded by experts
Who share their knowledge
Born with a feel for the moment

An eye for beauty and form
Nature speaking to the senses
Where nothing is perfect
And everything Is perfect.

Madidi National Park Sunset   Leave a comment

Madidi National Park (Bolivia) Sunset Along The Beni River (9/19/19) — Image by kenne

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,

Healthy, free, the world before me,

The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose,

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,

Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,

Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,

Strong and content I travel the open road.

— from Song of the Open Road by Walt Whitman

 

Nurturing Each Moment Revisited   Leave a comment

Santa Catalina Foothhills — Panorama Image by kenne

Nurturing each Moment

Tucson,
nearby foothills
home of DeGrazia

darkness,
low moving clouds
moving over the mountains

music,
blues in the air
coming from the Boonduck’s

Kika,
cat on the guard
lying low in pursuit

crickets,
sing in the night
adding to the aura

heat up,
roast in the day
cooling with the darkness

whiskey,
cool on the rocks
soothing the solitude

cigar,
smoke in the air
mixing with the night wind

starlight,
brighten the sky
pushing back the soft clouds

rainstorms,
in the forecast
teasing the believers

late-night,
clock in a.m.
seeking the morning light

twitter,
of early birds
singing of existing truth

outfits,
Lycra on two wheels
biking to the mountains

crossroads,
Sonoran sun
hiking Mount Lemmon’s peak

pleasure,
mind in control
nurturing each moment

A view to the north

With its layered bands of red rock

Near the end of day.

Stormy Weather   3 comments

Stormy Weather Over The South Rim of The Santa Catilina Mountains — Panorama by kenne

A Thunderstorm

The wind begun to rock the grass
With threatening tunes and low, –
He flung a menace at the earth,
A menace at the sky.

The leaves unhooked themselves from trees
And started all abroad;
The dust did scoop itself like hands
And throw away the road.

The wagons quickened on the streets,
The thunder hurried slow;
The lightning showed a yellow beak,
And then a livid claw.

The birds put up the bars to nests,
The cattle fled to barns;
There came one drop of giant rain,
And then, as if the hands

That held the dams had parted hold,
The waters wrecked the sky,
But overlooked my father’s house,
Just quartering a tree.

— Emily Dickinson

Lower Sabino Canyon Panorama — On A Clear Day   Leave a comment

View of Lower Sabino Canyon and the Tucson Basin from Phoneline Trail — Panorama by kenne

On a clear day
Rise and look around you
And you’ll see who you are.
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being outshines ev’ry star.

You’ll feel part of ev’ry mountain sea and shore.
You can hear, from far and near,
A world you’ve never heard before.
And on a clear day…
On that clear day…
You can see forever and ever more!

 
— from On A Clear Day You Can See Forever by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner

The Arizona Trail Runs Through Sycamore Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains — Panorama by kenne

“She was actually learning to love Arizona.

The beauty and color and solitude,

the vastness of it had called to something deep in her.

First, she had complained of the dust, the wind, the emptiness,

the absence of people. But she had forgotten these.”

— Zane Grey

On The Shores of Lake Mescalero (Inn of the Mountain Gods, Mescalero, New Mexico) — Panorama Image by kenne

We were standing
Standing by peaceful waters
Standing by peaceful waters
Whoa, ah-oh, ah-oh
Whoa, ah-oh, ah-oh
 
Whoa, ah-oh, ah-oh
Peaceful waters
Standing by peaceful waters
Aah, baby
We gotta go now
