When death comes
The ribs are exposed
Standing tall.

“The sky peeled back for a moment,
and a weak ray of sunset spilled over the scene
like the diseased eye of some forgetful god —
the light bearing with it cold in place of heat.” 

― Luis Alberto Urrea, Into the Beautiful North

Sometimes
today’s world
makes me feel
all tied up
in knots.

Bird WalkCactus Wren Grunge Art by kenne

Once in every lifetime
a little bird may come
alone and forgotten
knocked down by the sun.
Every man may choose
to turn and walk away
or take the bird into his hand
and bid him stay.

“The more a person knows of himself,
the more he will hesitate to define his nature
and to assert what he must necessarily feel,
and the more he will be astounded
at his capacity to feel
in unsuspected and unpredictable ways.”

— Alan Watts

One Liners

The dream at the end of the day, sided by tall cactus.

A dream I go back to every four years.

Broken cycles gathering tomorrow’s dreams.

Darkness comes first beneath the mountains.

Layers of orange and indigo-blue dye above blackness.

Stars moving in over a clear sky left by thieves.

Fresh lemons squeeze in a glass of tequila.

Little dark shadows with wings flying above.

An empty glass left on the white wicker chair.

Thoughts of tomorrow’s first cup of coffee.

I turn on the iPod connected to the Bose.

She in Houston, I in Tucson — a text message alert.

Little things, the makings of dreams.

Fun facts, or fake news?

Death On The Trail   Leave a comment

This towering Saguaro, close to forty feet, fail across a trail near the Sabino Creek Dam. This big fellow had no arms even though it had to be well over 100 years old. There were no signs of disease so it may have just gotten too big for its root system.
