I hold no preference among flowers,

so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.

It is not in the world of ideas that life is lived. Life is lived for better or worse in life, and to a man in life, his life can be no more absurd than it can be the opposite of absurd, whatever that…

sometimes I whisper

to my mountain muse —

come to my place.

come tomorrow.

on the way home

I thought of her

the yellow strips,

the dividing line.

The Columbine Wildflower, My Mountain Muse   1 comment

Always so tempting,

like the daughters

of the mountain god

tempting me to climb

down the narrow ravine,

I walked by

talking to myself

hoping to not hear

the music of

my mountain muse.

We hiked miles

before I decided

to photograph

another columbine,

attracted by the sound

of the nearby stream

providing background vocals,

as sun rays kissed

her golden lips.

The monsoon rains are bringing on the Mt. Lemmon wildflowers. One of my favorite wildflowers is the columbine. Even though I have a lot of columbine photos, it’s beauty always makes me feel as if I’m photographing it for the first time — something poetic about that, don’t you think?

Aspen Draw August 2013Golden Columbine On Mt. Lemmon — Image by kenne

“Where the birds of spring, in their season sing,
Their spontaneous melodies;
Where the columbine and the stately pine
Stand quivering in the breeze;
Where the aspen tall hugs the trachyte wall,
And the wild rose bedecks the hill;
Where the willows weep, and their vigils keep,
On the banks of the San Miguel.”

— from “The Valley Of The San Miguel” by Alfred Castner King
