I hold the most archaic
values on earth:

— the fertility of the soul
— the magic of the animals
— the power-vision in solitude
— the love & ecstasy of the dance
— the common work of the tribe

This is posted as we watch severe weather, rain, and snow across the southeast states. Our snow at the higher elevations of the surrounding mountains is nothing — stay dry and warm dear friends and family.

And the world cannot be discovered
by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our own feet,
and learn to be at home.

The Gray Clouds Of December   3 comments

After December Showers-Art-Edit-1-painting-blog.jpgSun Breaking Through Mountain Clouds — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The gray clouds of December
bring winter rains to the desert,
snow to the mountains high.
At day’s end, the sun shines through
just in time for Friday’s happy hour
at the Monsoon Bar in Tucson.
Street flooding begins to drain away
still deep enough to splash walkers
now freed from the day-long rains.

Bird On A Limb — Revisited   3 comments

Bird on  Limb Art July 2015-8227 blogBird On A Limb — Photo-Artistry by kenne

On an outing to photograph
wildflowers and butterflies
a little bird kept chirping,
as if to get my attention.

Staying on point,
I tried ignoring her —
the conditions for
photographing her

were not good,
but she was persistent.
So, ignoring problems with
lighting and distance

I answered her call
taking two shots.
Later, at home
I downloaded the images

and as expected,
they were not good.
But, something
about the little bird

kept getting my attention,
so I created a way
to share her
in the blogosphere.

The snow gently falls
On the dormant trees
Making a good quilt.

Golden Columbine — Two Photo-Artistry Images   1 comment

These images were taken a couple of weeks ago,
but with recent temperatures down around freezing,
mountain wildflowers are in their last stage of life.
Still plenty of wildflowers at the basin level.
