We all have a treasure waiting for us

here on earth. Find a place to communicate

with our better angels and we will find it.

A Morning Walk In The Canyon   3 comments

Lower Sabino Canyon Panorama (October 5, 2022) — Photomerge by kenne

I walk alone in the early morning
heading up a canyon trail
toward the mountains; the dust
rises from my steps better defining
the trail for hikers to follow.
The saguaros along the trail
reach the sky from the basin floor

as hikers pass by soon to return
to avoid the midday heat —
what were you expecting?
For the day does not hover,
not even for a moment
as the sun rises overhead,
the scars of my hiking remain
embedded in my thoughts
refusing to grow feeble, just old.

Lower Sabino Canyon Panorama — On A Clear Day   Leave a comment

View of Lower Sabino Canyon and the Tucson Basin from Phoneline Trail — Panorama by kenne

On a clear day
Rise and look around you
And you’ll see who you are.
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being outshines ev’ry star.

You’ll feel part of ev’ry mountain sea and shore.
You can hear, from far and near,
A world you’ve never heard before.
And on a clear day…
On that clear day…
You can see forever and ever more!
