The sun has grown,

As rose- desert dawn

She has reddened long,

Of monsoon’s song…

A halo of death
A sky where death is asleep
A corpse stands along.

A haunting morning
Transforms a normal
And simple aesthetic
Trying for unsettling
Depths of darkness.

The Desert Sun Is Heating Up   Leave a comment

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.

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.”

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.

Early Morning Sunrise Photoshoot In Sabino Canyon   8 comments

A couple of weeks ago I received a call from Gene in Peoria, Arizona, expressing an interest in photographing sunrise in Sabino Canyon. He and five others wanted to get an early start (6:30 am) to be ready for a sunrise photo shoot. Not being familiar with the canyon, Gene asked if a naturalist could lead his group to a good location. Seeing a good opportunity to shoot sunrise in the canyon myself, I agreed to lead them to a location overlooking the Sabino Canyon dam area. 

Yesterday morning we met in front of the Sabino Canyon Visitors Center where I met Gene, Phil, and John, minus three of the group who chose to pass on the early morning shooting. What a great way to start the day!

Is blocked by high and low clouds,

A jungle out there.
