high clouds move in

making perfect the sunset.

Christmas 2012Driving a Desert Highway Into the Sunset — Image by kenne

John Steinbeck best describes the desert sunset,
especially when driving down a long stretch of highway.
I think of his words often when viewing sunsets — valued added.

— kenne

A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon
and then dripped over and was gone,
and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone,
and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag,
hung over the spot of its going.
And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon,
and darkness crept over the land from the east.

― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

This Old Patio

This old patio is like a river bank
where I sit under an olive tree
and watch the evening sun go down.

And this old patio comforts the old man
whose weathered  bent fingers hold
a whiskey solute to another desert sunset.

This old patio is where all things stop
the moment the sun disappears
behind the now black mountains.

And this old patio is like chips and salsa
with lots of jalapeno peppers holding
back tears not crying about leaving.

“There are times in this world when things just line up
when everything is just about perfect.
A child’s laugh, a desert sunset and this morning.
It just couldn’t have been better,” 

said Cassini spacecraft program manager Earl Maize
as the spacecraft tumbled out of control while plummeting
more than 76,000 mph into Saturn.

“Farewell, faithful explorer.”

A Monsoon Sunset (August 26, 2014) — Images by kenne (Click on any of the images for a larger view in a slideshow format.)

By sunset,

rain clouds are breaking up

allowing the sunlight

to resonate

in harmonic colors

produced by

dark cloud worriors


soft cloud angels

in an energetic

capoeira dance

to Mas Que Nada,

celebrating days end.

Capturing The Moment — Light Feathering Into Dark   2 comments

Red sky at sunset

Clouds forming strings of light

Feathering into the night

As darkness covers the ground

Tracing the space of our connectiveness.

Desert Sunset

Angel wings gently flutter
As they pass over the desert floor
Using the sky as their canvas
And Heaven as their door

Streaks of pink and hues of purple
Color the desert the skies
As Angel wings quiver quickly
Dripping paint before it dries

Shades of gold mixed with blue
A tiny hint of green
Angel wings work furiously
To stroke this lovely scene

I sit and watch their busy work
As the sun is almost down
A sunset over the desert floor
Connecting heaven to the ground
