Deserts Come and Deserts Go

Is it a desert, only time will tell,
a landscape between heaven and hell.
Every ten thousand years or so,
the ice will come, the ice then will go.

In one place the ocean throws water across the land,
another place flowers beyond numbers to count grow.
In time, only a desert will tell,
the span between heaven and hell.

Magritte Clouds Over Cathedral Rock   1 comment

Cathedral Rock blogCathedral Rock in the Sedona Verde Valley

In a Magritte sky
clouds formed
from the smoke
of a stemmed pipe
one sunkissed on
Catalina peaks
the other an
Upflow Vortex
each a cathedral rock
named in history
remaining covered
invoking mystery
concealing nothing.

“We are surrounded by curtains. 
We only perceive the world 
behind a curtain of semblance. 
At the same time, 
an object needs to be covered 
in order to be recognized at all.”

– René Magritte

During our recent brief stay in Sedona, Jill, James, Joy and I went on a two hour jeep tour behind Thunder Mountain. I used James as an excuse to finally get Joy out on a back-country jeep tour. Considering that Joy was still recovering from surgery, she did quite well.

The ride was a joy with Joy!

Two Red Rock Nuns

Looking at the two red rock pillars
with shades of red forming lines
shaded by the late afternoon sun.

The hump-backed moon rises
over the nuns distorted faces —
smeared red lips not desiring.

Centuries of decay at their feet
delivered by tears of benevolence
a token of good will everlasting.

A sky so blue, not to be bought
by any painter at any human price —
isn’t that, after all, left to the gods.
