Here he comes again
Bird on the patio wall
Stalking a lizard.

I attend to this moment
less it goes unattended
by the bee flying
in and out of time
only to be lost in a
wild thyme unseen
just to be conquered 
and reconciled again.

Black Swallowtail Photo Essay– Signs of Spring   6 comments

Black Swallowtail Photo Essay– Signs of Spring by kenne (Tohono Chul, Tucson AZ, February 24, 2018) 

Desert springtime, with flowers popping up all over the place, trees leafing out, streams gushing down from the mountains. Great time of year for hiking, camping, exploring, sleeping under the new moon and the old stars. At dawn and at evening we hear the coyotes howling with excitement—mating season.

Tom, Patty, Joy and I chartered a boat to go fishing in the Sea of Cortez off the coast of Puerto Peñasco and were able to get in some whale watching on the way out — two for one! Others were out just for the whale watching. — kenne

Let It Shine

Morning awakens the light
Slowly stirring the heart
Revived from the sleeping night
By a singing Mexican chickadee.

Accounting for the moment
Can we ever know
How age built a monument
From what it doesn’t show?

I don’t mind
As long as you know
I will make it shine
By allowing time to slow.
