I hold no preference among flowers,

so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous.

A Columbine Bouquet — Image by kenne

At the edge of a stream

Stretching through mountain woods

Watching clouds create dark shadows

That sink down the stream where

Golden columbines shine

Though the dark shadows.

Giant Saguaro Cactus In Sabino Canyon   1 comment

Giant Saguaro Cactus In Sabino Canyon — Image by kenne

Along the mountain ridges,
      Across the desert floor;
      Arms like verdant armor,
      Stalwarts guard our door.
Shading for the lizard,
      Haven for the wren,
      Source of inspiration,
      For past and present men.

–Earl Bloss, “Saguaros,” in Arizona Highways, 1973

More sweat in the morning walk

Fewer walkers out
