The Desert Sun Is Heating Up   Leave a comment

Turkey Creek TrailDesert Sunrise — Digital Art by kenne

Another morning
getting up at five
providing several
hours cool hours
before the sun
heats up the day —
just another day
of neither adding
or taking away, but
I don’t give a damn.

The morning sun rises
over the Sabino Canyon
casting long shadows,
the ghosts of trees
mesquite by name
after years of caring
for young saguaros —
blessed are nature’s
caring ways.

Sunrise (1 of 1) blogSunrise in Sabino Canyon Recreational Area — Image by kenne

This morning the canyon is closed.
The government has shut down again.
Still, the sun comes up unaware as
Shadows move among the coyote or deer — 
Watch me rise and go.

A short walk up the path,

Taken by the silence stillness

As the sun rises over the ridge — 

A moment captured forever.

At Sunrise, Tunuri Meets Father Sun   Leave a comment

Tunuri began to walk, following this flower trail.

He walked up a high hill and standing in the 

sun at the vary top was the Blue Deer. Tunuri

ran up to him and saw the sun shining brightly 

in the sky. As he enjoyed its warmth on his skin,

he heard a strong, kind voice speak.

“Hello, Tunuri! I am Father Sun.”

Sunrise On The trail (1 of 1)-3 blogDesert Sunrise — Image by kenne

Dawn

Bells of Córdoba

in the early hours.

Bells of dawn

in Granada.

They hear you,

all the girls who cry

for the tender Soleá in mourning.

The girls

of Audalusia the High

and the Low.

Young girls of Spain

with tiny feet

and trembling skirts

who’ve filled the crossroads

with lights.

On, bells of Córdoba

in the early hours,

and oh, bells of dawn

in Granada!

— Federico Garcia Lorca

Despairing of God, I came to the desert seeking saints.
The tongue of the tribe sleeping in my family
whispers spiny songs: chumpaco / place where they killed
the dogs: huirives / bird: bacochibampo / the water of the
serpents: bajeribampo / water of the lizards: cuirimpo /
the place of the drummers.
