It’s been a warm and dry fall on Mt. Lemmon, which could be a sign of little moisture and low temperatures the winter for Sky Valley.

Fall On The Aspen Draw Trail   6 comments

Aspen Draw Trail-978307200 blog TitleImage by kenne

Lonely ski slopes
off the mountaintop
surrounded by a 
forest of color, with
small brooks passing.

So it is with me 
to hike the Aspen Draw
up the slopes
under the fall colors — 
sun mingling with leaves.

Once near the top
a girl with yellow hair
passes by without
saying a word, not
knowing I was there.

A stranger to
everything

and everyone
just passing through
this lonely world.

Fall Leaves At Peace   Leave a comment

fall-leaves-blogFall Leaves at Peace — Image by kenne

Fall leaves at peace
still
holding raindrops
coming in the darkness

of night, understated,
still,
I wish the drops 

would soak the leaves

as if to give them life
again,
connecting the ground,
breathing.

Late Fall In Sabino Canyon Photo Essay   Leave a comment

The large cottonwoods, Arizona Sycomore, Ash, Willows common to riparian area along Sabino Creek share their color around the Holiday Season — nature’s gift to our beautiful canyon.

The trail leads through
the towering saguaros,
I search for yellows and reds
near the dry creek.

Leaves in sequence fall
fulfilling the plan
guarded by nature
in fragments of gold.

I stopped to wonder,
not knowing the random
planting in the entrails
of Sabino Canyon.

No straight road in this world
Only a giant labyrinth
Of intersecting crossroads”

Leaves On The Ground   Leave a comment

Autumn Song

Leaves of brown they fall to the ground
And it’s here, over there leaves around
Shut the door, dim the lights and relax
What is more, your desire or the facts

Pitter patter the rain falling down
Little glamor sun coming round
Take a walk when autumn comes to town

Little stroll past the house on the hill
Some more coal on the fire will do well
And in a week or two it’ll be Halloween
Set the page and the stage for the scene

Little game the children will play
And as we watch them while time away
Look at me and take my breath away yeah

You’ll be smiling eyes beguiling
And the song on the breeze
Will call my name out and your dream

Chestnuts roasting outside as you walk
With your love by your side
The old accordion man plays mellow and bright
And you go home in the crispness of the night

Little later friends will be along
And if you feel like joining the throng
Just might feel like singing Autumn song
Just may feel like singing Autumn song

You’ll be smiling
Eyes beguiling
And the song on the breeze
Calls my name out in your dream

Chestnuts roasting outside
As you walk with your love by your side
And the old accordion plays mellow and bright
And you go home in the crispness of the night

Little later friends will be along
And if you feel like joining the throng
Just might feel like singing Autumn song
Just may feel like singing Autumn song

You’ll be smiling
Eyes beguiling
And the song on the breeze
Calls my name out in your dream

–Van Morrison

Fall Scene On Mt. Lemmon   1 comment

mt-lemmon-painted-texture-16_-oil-blogFall Scene On Mt. Lemmon — Computer Art by kenne

The road curves through the pine and aspen trees,
some curves are 90-degree turns up to the top
of Mt. Lemmon where visitors are greeted by

beautiful panorama of crystal air vistas, ending
outside the Mt. Lemmon Observatory taking
advantage of the clear Tucson area night skies.

As a frequent hiker on the many trails in the
Catalina mountains, I’m nearing the age
of 76 knowing there are other men in hospitals

and nursing homes or sitting on bus-stop
benches not having their fountain of youth
the uselessness of words is evident, so I

continue to make use of words and capture
the moments to share with those who the
fountain of youth is a state of mind.

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth,
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.
To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again.
To make a deep mental path, we must think
over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

–Henry David Thoreau

For the lands, and for these passionate days, and for myself,
Now I awhile return to thee, O soil of Autumn fields,
Reclining on thy breast, giving myself to thee,
Answering the pulses of thy sane and equable heart,
Tuning a verse for thee.

O Earth, that hast no voice, confide to me a voice!
O harvest of my lands! O boundless Summer growths!
O lavish, brown, parturient earth! O infinite, teeming womb!
O theatre of time, and day, and night!
A verse, to seek to see, to narrate thee.

— from “A Carol of Harvest for 1867” by Walt Whitman
