Communicating With Nature   Leave a comment

Morning Shadows in the Canyon with a Friend (Greater Roadrunner)– Images by kenne


Since moving to the Sonoran Desert,
I have had the time and inclination to
Communicate with the stars, trees,
And animals; able to live more intensely.

To walk in the morning as the sun
Comes up over the Rincon Mountains
Casting long shadows along the path as
The sky keeps its freshness from the night.

The air is crisp. I watch as birds fly by
Evoking in my thoughts, the dawn breeze
Becomes brisker, creating movement sounds
Percussion for the bird’s songs.

Desert morning friend

I see you waiting for me

Ahead on the trail.


Crown and tail pop up

Tired of waiting, you move on —

Catch me if you can.

Alert and cunning

All business searching for food

This is not a show.

Big bird on the wall
Lizards near the olive tree
A hot desert breeze.

Big bird looks around
Sound of water from fountain
Many attractions.

Small birds rest nearby
Waiting turns at the fountain
Big bird taking time.


Roadrunner Calling For A Mate   4 comments

I could hear a clicking noise
coming from a mesquite tree
and began to look around
not sure what it might be.

Turns out the noise was a call,
the mating call of a cockoo bird
as he was standing tall
waiting for his call to be heard.

Then, nearby on the ground
 his call was returned —
he began limb hopping down
to the sound he knew was earned.

Been seeing a lot of these guys lately. With much cooler days  some of the greater roadrunner’s food,
like  tarantulas, scorpions, and reptiles are underground. This one was all about business, hunting through the brush.

Roadrunner August 14 2015 (1 of 1)-2 blog105 Degrees In The Shade — Images by kenne

Home from a hike on Mt. Lemmon
just finished downloading images

when Joy announce to me,
“A roadrunner was on the patio.”

Grabbing my camera off the desk
I went to the patio door

where I could see the bird
on a branch of the olive tree

above the water fountain —
105 degrees in the shade.
