The agave is considered perennial, because they require several to many years to mature and flower.
However, most Agave species flowers only once and then dies.

Agave Cactus

You don’t squeeze tequila
from a pumped up, rubbery leaf.
Nothing is easy in Mexico,
and everything takes time,
patience, muscle. Hacking
and digging and hacking
and a deep pit and fire
and time and time and time.
I lose time, forget it at
the other end of the tequila,
but left to me, that cactus
would still be standing there
on the Sonora Desert undisturbed.

Sonoran Monsoon Season

The monsoon season is here.
Triple digit temperatures,
with cool mornings and
daylight at 5:00 a.m. —
perfect for a morning run,
as the sun rises casting 
long shadows and silhouettes
of white-winged doves atop
the giant saguaro cactus.

Many years ago we 
took a risk on love,
then seven years ago
we took a risk on life and
moved to the Sonora Desert.
Many thought we were crazy,
maybe we were at the time,
after all, what is life
without some risk.

Seven years of desert monsoons
have brought us closer to nature,
now more connected to life
we appreciate each day
and the opportunities
to continue taking risks,
increasing our capacity
to live life in unsuspected and
unpredictable ways.

It Will Happen Again   2 comments

Agave (1 of 1)_edit blog“Happen Again” — Image by kenne

now that the picture has been taken,

photoshopped another image,

as thorns touch her lips,

as the sun moves across her shadows,

it will happen again, and happen again,

as the shadow falls again, and falls again,

it will happen again.

does it matter,

now that the picture has been taken,

as my desire to kiss her lips,

as the pain becomes a feel good hurt,

does it matter, does it really matter,

it will happen again, and happen again,

this drifting of the mind.
