A Solstice Night   Leave a comment

Yard Photos Dec 2009Winter Solstice (December 19, 2009, The Woodlands, Texas) — Computer Art by kenne

A solstice night
in the dead of winter,
strategically placed lighting
on the courtyard wall.

Dark shadows imprinted
beyond the naked trees,
in this gloomy season of mists,
concealing signs of winter’s damage,

where only ghosts abound.
Tomorrow morning

the low sun starts
a minute-by-minute journey back,

not behind, but within
it’s new spring companion.
But for now,
nature remains soulfully raw.

Sabino Canyon Panorama- blogPanorama of Sabino Canyon Taken From Tram Road Near Stop 9 (February 16, 2010) — Image by kenne

At the time I took this panorama I had no idea the role this beautiful canyon would play in my life for the next seven years. In February of 2010, we drove to Tucson to explore our making a move from The Woodlands Texas to Tucson. Now the rest is history. (Flickr Album)

he stands by the shore

watching water

flow over the dam

from the little creek

now a lake

soon to be

a creek again —

a journey to ponder

. . . is it just water over the dam?

Mother Agnes with Granddaughter Kate — Throwback Thursday   1 comment

EasterKate&Mom-B-W blogMother Agnes with Granddaughter Kate (Easter, April 11, 2004) — Image by kenne

I don’t usually do “Throwback Thursday” postings, but the other day I ran across this photo. Mother could be real entertaining at times.

Kate was probably listening to her grandmother talking to her other son, Tom. Look at Kate’s eyes.

Agnes was a great storyteller and had an identifiable laugh, especially when she was excited.

Once she was entertaining her grandchildren telling stories, I placed a small recorder near her. Like so many things over the years, it got misplaced, or accidentally tossed in a move.

Zen Fountain Project — Revisited   1 comment

Zen Fountain1 blog

Recently I received a comment on a July 11, 2008 posting, “Our Zen Fountain”.
The writer wanted to know where I got the supplies. The concrete pieces
were made in Mexico, but it has now been eight years
since the project, so I no longer have specific information.

The inquiry brought back memories of this work of love.
As I wrote at the time, we waited six weeks for the final concrete piece.

The location of the fountain is near of deck
under a canopy of pine and crape myrtle trees,
which made for a beautiful setting.

Soon after completing the project, Kiko our 17 year old cat died.
We buried him in the fountain landscape area making the Zen Fountain
a memorial fountain for Kiko.

This project was my favorite landscape project ever.
Two years later we move from The Woodlands, Texas
to Tucson where we have a patio fountain,
but no fountain will replace this very special fountain —
“Our Zen Fountain”.

I mozy, do you?
Long legs moving straight ahead,
Waddle side to side.
