The Desert Sun Is Heating Up   Leave a comment

Turkey Creek TrailDesert Sunrise — Digital Art by kenne

Another morning
getting up at five
providing several
hours cool hours
before the sun
heats up the day —
just another day
of neither adding
or taking away, but
I don’t give a damn.

Tomorrow’s Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) Friday hike will be on the Douglas Spring Trail in the Rincon Mountains. For the first time in several years, I will not be participating. I will miss being on this hike.

A flat start into the morning sun
Hikers leaving behind long shadows
On a trail that will soon disappear 
As we start our climb in
The mountain’s shadow, stopping
Only to watch things themselves
Letting the sun and earth
Go about their changes.

The Capture of Mr. Sun

The sun is a lion
     circling his cage,
Caught for you, brought for you
     on this wheeled stage,
Through fixed bars glaring
     his wrath and his rage
Like a pen for the baby
     or bedrails in old age.

The lion is a sunflower
     with a broad gold face,
Its petals outstreaming
     like a mane or the rays
Of that candescent Power
    we all watch pace
Through the gendering heavens
    on its circuit of days.

The flower is tracing
     the sun on its rounds;
The carnival moves through
     its orbit of towns;
The lion's cage rolls
     your streets up and down
Where be pads and we shiver
     at his smile, his frown.

A short walk up the path,

Taken by the silence stillness

As the sun rises over the ridge — 

A moment captured forever.

“Oh that the desert were my dwelling place,
With only one fair spirit for my minster.
That I might forget the human race,
And hating no one, love her only.”

— Lord Byron
