Saguaros On My Mind — Images by kenne

A nurse tree

can help raise

generations

of saguaros

only to die

long before

the cactus’.

who took another
path I couldn’ say.

Cries in the wind.
Blanks among trees.

Saguaro Sunset — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The sun sets
many times

before saguaros
grow arms

tracing the sun
on its rounds

time denying
the memory

a clear
visual shape.

Saguaros In Sabino Canyon — Image by kenne

Sometimes happiness is a blessing,
but, generally, it is a conquest.
Each day’s magic moment
helps us to change and sends us off
in search of our dreams.

Saguaro Cactus Are Being Destroyed By The Bighorn Fire   3 comments

Ventana Canyon - Clouds-Edit-1-art-72Lower Ventana Canyon (02/20/15) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The Bighorn Fire has been burning for days in Ventana Canyon.
I love hiking in this beautiful narrow canyon. The lower part of
this canyon contains a lot of desert plants, such as the saguaro cactus.
This Sonoran Desert signature cactus is not adaptive to fire.
Thousands have already been destroyed by the Bighorn Fire.
It may take hundreds of years to return, if at all. Sad, very sad.

“Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit,
and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.
A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild,
the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins
and betraying the principle of civilization itself.”

— Edward Abbey

How about a little hug
And kiss, my dear?

Oh no, we have to be careful
not to get the coronavirus.

“I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won.

I found that while the camera does not express the soul,

perhaps a photograph can!”

Saguaro Family-72.jpgA Legion Of Saguaros In Sabino Canyon — Image by kenne

Over the years, I have called groups of saguaros everything from a group, grove, and family.
Recently I was told that the correct term is “legion.” So, here you have it.
