Cat’s Claw Vines In The Neighborhood   Leave a comment

Cat’s Claw Vines In The Neighborhood (Tanuri Ridge) — HDR Images by kenne

The Cat’s Claw

the high nectar bent on a straw
the cat’s claw
a lazy man’s portion
the sound of its slogan
a view from the ocean
into the oven
under the covers
the stomach or the shoulders

balance is the key to power
the milk will sour
read between the lines
a fashionable design
bending the desire
coming down to the wire

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength
that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the
repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”

She drives through the canyon

Taking each curve slowly

Controling both the car

and her nerves.

Sabino Canyon Colors Des 2013-9186_HDR blogSabino Canyon Creek In HDR — Image by kenne

Standing at the creekside,

sun’s silver sparkles dance

on the tannins in rippling waters,

where autumn’s flaming colors

present in gold and red —

a beauty you have not seen, yet

convey strong emotional connections

to the vivid colors in the land I love

with its genius for catching the soul,

only then being present with nature.
