Great Blue Heron Visited A Neighbor’s House — Image by kenne

Although one might not expect to see a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) in the Sonoran Desert, they have an extensive range
and occur throughout much of North and Central America wherever there is water. If you happen to have a koi or goldfish pond
in your backyard, you may be visited by a heron.

Sometimes you hear them

Their humming sound makes us look

Making eye contact.

high clouds move in

There are moments

down deep inside

when I scream — 

Nobody gets in

to see the wizard

not nobody, 

not no how.

Foggy Morning Birthday On Tanuri Ridge   1 comment

Foggy Morning Birthday On Tanuri Ridge — Image by kenne

This sandgrain day in the bent bay’s grave
He celebrates and spurns
His driftwood eighty-second wind turned age;
Herons spire and spear.

The Hills of Cualann

In the youth of summer
The hills of Cualann
Are two golden horns,
Two breasts of childing,
Two two of light.

In the age of winter
They are two rusted swords,
Two waves of darkness,
Two moons of ice.

— Joseph Campbell

Winter Solstice, 2022   Leave a comment

 
Winter solstice 2022 in Northern Hemisphere will be at 2:47 PM on Wednesday, December 21 MST — Photo-Artistry by kenne

 

The waxing of the sun, that

moment of solstice when

everything is still,

everything is silent —

an exotic moment of being

with darkness

giving birth to light

to which we celebrate

the relationship,

the moment of being

in the birthplace of life.

Dust In The Wind   Leave a comment

Autumn Sunset — Image by kenne

“I close my eyes
Only for a moment,
then the moment’s gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity…

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground,
though we refuse to see…

Now, don’t hang on
Nothing lasts forever
but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money
won’t another minute buy…

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind.”

— Kansas

And that behind Orpheus’ laments shines 
the glory of having seen, however fleetingly,
the unattainable face at the very instant it turned away . . .
