November Sunset-blogNovember Sunset — Moment Captured by kenne

Nature provides the beauty
and at best, I can only try,
try to capture the moment
for which, I’m thankful.

The Dragon-fly

Today I saw the dragon-fly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.

— Alfred Lord Tennyson

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp, but which,
if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

This male pyrrhuloxia looks a lot like a female Northern Cardinal and its song is nearly identical to the cardinal.

Notes On A Sedona Morning

After mornings of hiking,
sitting on the big rock summit–
sun in my face, I find myself
drinking coffee on the
Wildflower Bread Company patio
surrounded by red rock towers,
ants at my feet and
young women taking selfies.

I like solitude, but
sometimes 
it’s nice
to be alone in the
middle 
of humanity —
a prisoner of my condition.
Sorry, no pictures of food.
My cup of coffee
not worth posting.

Maybe the plus-size women
eating big puffy bread
potato-egg sandwiches
wouldn’t mind if I take a picture of
their breakfast, but
I’m not going to ask –
something tells me
they weren’t up at 5:00am hiking.

The conversation turned to
what to eat for lunch . . .
