May not be a harvest moon

Don’t really care.

Corvette Raffle At Festival   Leave a comment

Corvette Raffle at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church Tucson Greek Festival — Image by kenne

With so many leaves, the sun waves good day
with many stands shines, shines the sky
and those ones inn irons and those others are in the earth.

Quiet anytime now, the church bells will signal.

This earth is theirs and ours.

Beneath the earth in their crossed arms
they hold the rope of the church bells,
they are awaiting the hour, waiting to signal the resurrection
this earth is theirs and ours
no one can take it from us

Quiet anytime now, the church bells will signal.

— from The Church Bells Will Signal by Yiannis Ritsos

You try not to stop

When food looks and smiles so good

How can you say no?

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.

Pocket gophers are sometimes confused with their fossorial relatives, moles. There are several easy ways to tell the two groups apart.
Moles have small teeth and tiny, unapparent eyes. Pocket gophers have long incisors that protrude from the mouth, and their eyes are easy to see.
In addition, mole tunnels leave raised ridges in the ground, whereas pocket gopher tunnels do not. — Source: The National Wildlife Federation

Sometimes you hear them

Their humming sound makes us look

Making eye contact.

Borderland Moon — Photo-Artistry by kenne
 
Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth
With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the night-thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.
 
— from Frost at Midnight by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Human-Kind: Be Both   Leave a comment

Tucsonan Activists —  Image by kenne

These are amazing: each
Joining a neighbor, as though speech
Were a still performance.
Arranging by chance

To meet as far this morning
From the world as agreeing
With it, you and I
Are suddenly what the trees try

To tell us we are:
That their merely being there
Means something; that soon
We may touch, love, explain.

And glad not to have invented
Such comeliness, we are surrounded:
A silence already filled with noises,
A canvas on which emerges

A chorus of smiles, a winter morning.
Placed in a puzzling light, and moving,
Our days put on such reticence
These accents seem their own defense.

— Some Trees by John Ashbery

Low clouds remain

in the canyons

of the foothills

after a weekend

of much needed rain.

Top Two Shelves In Our Study — Image by kenne

There are moments

down deep inside

when I scream — 

Nobody gets in

to see the wizard

not nobody, 

not no how.
