Yesterday I was walking into Sabino Canyon to teach 1st-grade students how the Hohokam lived in the canyon and the Tucson basin hundreds of years ago when a friend spotted a red-tail hawk atop a tall saguaro cactus. Sadly, I didn’t have my Nikon camera with me, so I made use of my iPhone to capture an image. Not what I would like to capture, but it’s better than not getting an image at all.

I went to the desert
to seek my own saint.

Saguaro Cactus B&W blog“Statue of Death” — Image by kenne

All time is created equal,
but we don’t use it equally.
Some are livin’ on Tulsa time,
while others in a New York minute.

My time is your time,
but it is not mine to give.
You can’t give away
something that isn’t yours.

…unless you share the moment.

some are

some are even worth

Standing Tall In Death   Leave a comment

Dark Helo-31 blogStanding Tall In Death (Dead Saguaro Cactus In the Morning Sun) — Image by kenne

Standing tall in death
facing tomorrows and
what they may bring
knowing each will change
how we see yesterday
and how we adjust
to the present — nothing
remains the same.
