You better watch out 
You better not sigh 
You better not doubt 
I’m telling you why 
Christmas Roadrunner is spying on you
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo

He runs level to the ground
Watching your every move
Running through this land of brown
Always knowing how to sing and grove
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo

He sees you, you don’t see him
Quiet when you are near by
Sometimes on a low limb
Raising a bushy blue-black crest high
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo

You better watch out
Cause he may suddenly run at you
So, you better not doubt
I’m telling you true
Christmas Roadrunner is spying on you
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo
co-coo-coo-coo-coooooo

The Eyes Tell You

Little girls have a mysterious power,
But not all can feel it – when she does,
You can see it in her eyes.

As she matures, she is driven
To climb the tower of perfection,
Always resisting her own indifference.

Her enigmatic power is needed
To stir the artist inside,
To triumph over the unenlightened.

In her own way, she will find something new,
Something never before encountered
Placing art in a world void of feeling.

Inventive, she will act,
Sometimes seeking out failure
In order to turn it into a triumph.

Once her power is transformed
By the magical virtue of art,
Loving and understanding becomes simpler.

Thinking about Mother

I thought about yesterday
Remembering the moments

I thought about today
Taking a deep breath.

I thought about tomorrow
Exceeding my grasp.

I thought about time
Wondering about timeless.

I thought about life,
Asking the questions.

I thought about people,
Knowing not what I see.

I thought about what is,
Wondering why?

I thought about ideals,
Seeking what should be.

I thought about truth,
Confusing it with the facts.

I thought about art,
Becoming aware.

I thought about love
Touching the feeling.

I though about Joy,
Feeling love inside. 

I thought about you,
Walking with long shadows

I thought again of tomorrow
Sharing your path.

 These are my words to you, Mother. We miss you every day, especially on Mothers Day!

and words are all I have
to take your heart away.”

Decorating Creosote Bushes At Christmas   5 comments

Christmas 2012

Images by kenne

Driving old Route 66 in the foothills of the Black Mountains near Oatman, Arizona, we noticed one of the ever-present Creosote bushes along the edge of the highway was decorated. Figuring this had to be a photo opt, I stopped to capture the moment.

Continuing our drive to Oatman, we saw another decorated Creosote bush: then another and another. I have since learn that this is a Christmas tradition — children decorating the bushes along Route 66 outside of Oatman.
