“. . . I now find the most marvelous things in
the everyday,
the ordinary,
the common,
the simple and tangible.
For example:
one cloud floating over one mountain.”

Vegas is an illusion
Running from the truth.

I Pray To The Birds   1 comment

Mockingbird Silouette-72Mockingbird Silhouette by kenne

“I pray to the birds because
 they remind me of what I love
rather 
than what I fear.
And at the end of my prayers,
they teach me how to listen.” 
― Terry Tempest Williams

“Look,
There’s a spider.
A good year for spiders
Or so and so seems,
Incessantly weaving
Such gossamer schemes.”

but the energy of forgiveness,
which reveals itself through love,
will transform your life in a positive way.”

Otherside of Nowhere   1 comment

Windmill B&W blog-“Old Watering Hole” — Black & White Image by kenne

OTHERSIDE OF NOWHERE

Still dusty and dry
the old place ain’t
what it used to be.

In the desert it’s hot
Thirsty for summer rains —
Yesterday was windy.

Vultures circle above
I turn away only to look back
Disappearing into clear air.

The mountains sweep up
As if floating a gray color
Over the old corral.

Soft breeze at mid-day
Vanes slowly turning
The noisy water pump.

A shadow network
Of the sunshine moves
Across dry sandy ground.

I cut down an agave stalk
To become my walking stick —
An old phase made real.

High on the ridge-side
I follow my own trail
To the otherside of nowhere.

Watching The Parade Go By   Leave a comment

St. Pat's Day Parade DSC_1484 blogWatching The Parade Go By (Tucson St. Patrick Day)– Image by kenne

Standing or sitting
the parade goes by.
Children screaming
their laughter rings.

One time she did the same
now an emptiness from
which joy comes producing
flashbacks in her mine.

If she wrote poems, they
would reach helplessly
towards forever-lost pasts
only to glimpse the future.
