Sabino Dam, January 2020   Leave a comment

Sabino Damin the Winter-72.jpgSabino Dam, January 2020 — Image by kenne

A crown of gold
over water flowing
from recent snow
melting on Mt. Lemmon.

Down by the creek banks
water a fading red residue
from the leaves of fall now
under the mountain snow.

Now and then
pieces of the crown
slowly begin to fall
leaving a nakedness.

Alone a trail above the dam
visitors walk near the water
drawn by nature’s presence
exchanging moment mysteries.

Poetry is read by the lovers of poetry
and heard by some move they coax to the cafe
or the district library for a bifocal reading.
Lovers of poetry may total a million people
on the whole planet. Fewer than the players of skat.

I’ll Take My Spring On The Rocks   1 comment

The Shape of Water“I’ll Take My Spring On the Rocks” (Sabino Creek near the dam.) — Image by kenne

“When you sit in silence long enough,
you learn that silence has a motion.

It glides over you without shape or form,
exactly like water. 
Its color is silver.
And silence has a sound you hear
only after hours of wading inside it.

The sound is soft,
like flute notes rising up,
like the words of glass speaking.

Then there comes a point
when you must shatter
the blindness of its words,
the blindness of its light.”
