The Gatekeeper
(Connecting Generation to Generation, Moment to Moment)

I can still see him
walking the land
at the end of our day —
his long shadow
stretching across the land
saluting the setting sun,
listening to the breeze
slowly moving the pines
each in concert with the sunset.

Surveying his domain
in a moment of thanks,
collecting the feelings
inspired by nature’s
changing of the guard
continuing life’s connection
to all things now
and all things to come.

Even as before, I watch
him through youthful eyes
now knowing his thoughts
formed by years of experience
and a Devine connection
to the rhythm of the ages,
the language of the universe.

Not just another sunset,
but a passing of the baton —
connecting the day with the night,
yesterday with tomorrow,
creating moments of recollection
of life’s passages from now to forever,
insuring our never-ending existence.

Two quails on the wall
Unaware of my presence
Consciously walk by.

When the wash is dry
We find this pair in our pool —
Tell then we don’t share.

Beautiful sunsets
Living on Tanuri Ridge
Even when it rains.

Watching the sunset
Rejuvenate mind and soul
At the end of day.

Sunsets are a gift
Its passage is refreshing
To all who see it.

Moved by each sunset
In the face of mystery
Creating a dream.

By sharing your dreams
They become the stuff of myths
To be shared by all.

Reflections-1201 II_Art-Graphic Sketch blogReflections — Graphic Sketch: Photo-Artistic by kenne

Vises sit on the table
beneath the courtyard window
where we watch a radiant   
sunrise over the desert landscape.

At the end of the day when
darkness comes into view
only reflections of the vises
appear in the window —

like reflections on water
no longer obtuse
where nothing
leads to nothing.
