Early Morning In Alamos, Sonora   2 comments

Alamos Street (1 of 1)-HDR blogEarly Morning Street Sence In Alamos, Sonora — HDR Image by kenne

Alamos, Sonora
7 a.m caught
the eye of
a lone dog
standing
at the door
patient 
Mexican dog
not one to
chase bikes
laying against
the sidewalk.

only a few
high clouds
add contrast
against the 
blue sky
behind me
a truck
rattles by
carts pushed
toward the
plaza
no one
sleeping
on benches 
like in America.

some Mexicans
sitting on the
church steps
born destined
to work in the
cathedral of toil
looking old at 21
a woman leaves
morning mess
still believing in
the Guadalupe lady
painted on velvet —
I shell paint
a velvet Elvis.

Mi Pueblo Alamos — Computer Painting   4 comments

Street (1 of 1)_painting blogMi Pueblo Alamos– Computer Painting by kenne

Swish, swish, swish it’s a steady beat
In the early morn when they sweep the streets
Roosters crow and burros bray
Welcoming you to another day

And the sound of music fills the air
Lifting the spirits of those who dare
To just enjoy being in this place
Where life moves at a slower pace

The days go by with not much worry
You can take life easy or be in a hurry
It’s your choice, it’s your wish
But I like it here just as it is!

The Morning Is Bright   2 comments

Alamos Street (1 of 1)_painting II blogThe Morning is Bright — Computer Painting by kenne

The morning is bright,

listen to soft voices

full of light and gentle.

It is thoughtfulness

of eternal morning

full of secrets captive

in each heart and soul.

With the morning sun

our cares pass as

for a moment we

become more childlike

dripping memories

in the fountain of life.

One of our guides while in Alamos was Stephanie Meyer. Stephanie, a field trained biologist, excellent birder and interpreter of Mexico’s mestizo and indigenous culture hosted a gathering of local friends and our tour group at her home in Alamos.

One afternoon while in Alamos we all met where Tucson’s Ronstadt Generations was staying to listen to a fabulous seventy-five year old harmonica player, Rafael Figueroa Ju. His appearance was a beautiful example of organized spontaneity.
