My home was at Cold Mountain from the start,
Rambling among the hills, far from trouble.

Gone, and a million things leave no trace
Loose, and it flows through the galaxies
A fountain of light, into the very mind—
Not a thing, and yet it appears before me:
Now I know the pearl of the Buddha-nature
Know its use: a boundless perfect sphere.

Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

Honey Bee On London Rocket Wildflower   2 comments

The London Rocket is a naturalized weed native to Europe. It is most common in riparian areas, fields, drainage ditches, and in vacant lots. Because of the timing of desert winter rains this year, this weed seems to be everywhere. “The common name ‘London rocket’ comes from its abundance after the Great Fire of London in 1666. It was also noticed on bomb sites after the Blitz.”

They make me quiet; I like to be in their company.

The Monsoon Rains Brings On the Texas Ranger Blossoms — Images by kenne

The Texas Ranger blossoms
don’t last long 
but
well worth the moments.

The monsoon rains provide
a second flowering season
just one of many reasons the
Sonoran Desert is so very special.

The fairy duster
loves to dance
moving to the beat
of the breeze.

She attracts
dancing partners
spreading her dust
on passing bees.

It has been warmer than average for this time of year.
Except for a few small pools of water, Sabino Creek is dry.
Yet, above the  Sabino Dam, a bee and I found this lone
Hooker’s Evening Primrose — a very pleasant surprise.

Aspen Draw August 2013Beauty is but a flower . . .  — Computer Art by kenne

Beauty is but a flower
Which wrinkles will devour;
Brightness falls from the air;
Queens have died young and fair;
Dust hath closed Helen’s eye.
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us!
