Sunset

The fire in the sky is dying
The mountains are tall and dark
The spirit of the day is flying
Sunset leaves its mark
The colors up on high are lovely
The air is clear and cool
An ending approaches mildly
Day and night begin a duel
But the light must give way sometime
And who will win, I’ll bet
Is dark, mysterious nighttime
As day gives way to sunset

Red waves at sunset
Real-world mysterious sky
Gray shadows on red.

” . . take one as needed”   5 comments

Sunsets & Yard Flowers September 2012Tucson Sunset — Image by kenne

Why I live in Tucson, “. . . take one as needed.”

The sky is more than blue,
it’s “Tucson blue,”
as I walk the trails,
sometimes in pain,
but always convivial
in fellowship with nature
where there is strong
medicine in the air —

. . . take one as needed.

Landscapes draw inspiration,
subtle and complex
as an O’Keeffe painting,
everywhere you look
(with a trained eye)
stories of the past
can be heard
in your mind’s ear —

. . . take one as needed.

Allowing the mind
to enclose infinity
(yes, the mind can)
for the moment
to accommodate
all the sounds
all the smells
all observable images — 

. . . take one as needed.

Diversity, a word
often heard when
describing the Sonoran desert
(the source of that concept)
and the purposes
all living things play
trying to be worthy
recipients of each breath —

. . . take one as needed.

Each day brings
an appreciation
for every moment,
that every second
does really count
as time builds moments
that will forever echo 
off the mountains —

. . . take one as needed.

When not hiking the trails
I continue learning,
learning about desert ecology
and the ways of the past
so that I can be part
of those people
who came before me
and sow their seeds —

. . . take one as needed.

Here we have city ways 
and village ways,
a yin and yang balance
creating a special blend
allowing those who 
dream to live in between
the Tucson blue
and the desert night stars —

. . . take one as needed.

Each day ends
with memorable sunsets
where troubles cease
providing a fountain of thoughts
becoming the stuff of poems
often remaining silent
nurturing the inter spirit —

. . . take one as needed.

When there are no clouds in a desert sunset, it’s just another beautiful sunset. But when clouds move in the sunset takes on something special, which gives me a reason to capture nature at its best.
