An open skylight

Equal parts broken sunlight

Is magical light.

Changes the rhythm

As colors move through the room

Giving soul to space.

morning snow on the catalinas-art-72December Snow (View off Our Patio) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

A low cloud at the mountain base
provides a blanket of warmth
for the Catalina Foothills after
an overnight dusting of snow.

The higher clouds begin to break
allowing the morning sun to
shine over the mountain canyons
bringing a new awakening view.

On mountains surrounding us — 
A moment of green.

DeGrozia GalleryDeGrazia Shadows — Digital Art by kenne

Making use of mud and straw walls, artist Ted DeGrazia carefully designed every
detail of his Gallery In The Sun located in the Catalina Foothills, Tucson, Arizona.

“The mud wall is masculine —
physically and durable.

The straw is feminine —
delicate as a thread.

Its color is sun and gold.”

— Ted DeGrazia

Desert Monsoon Sunset Panorama   1 comment

Desert Monsoon

The clouds are stacking up high
In that clear blue afternoon sky
Turning the scorching sun to mere silver lining
Raising a cool hope in all desert being
Is that the long-awaited monsoon coming? 
Who would know? 
The wind blows westward steadfast
Giving the convoy of clouds a warm piggyback 
But who knows when…? 
The clouds will turn into precious monsoon rain
Or just evaporate spontaneously once again! 

Oh monsoon rain
You kept us all in clear suspense
Desert being are dreaming of you for so long
Are you, or are you not visiting us soon? 

The clouds have covered the June evening sky
Colored light brown like bowl of boiled rice
Signaling monsoon rain may be on its way
Sooner we can hope for something real nice!
