these people of the air

these people of the wind,

has a sense of where to go and how,

how to go north north-by-west north,

till they came to one wooden pole,

till they were home again.

My Chautauqua Path   3 comments

Mountain trails have become

my Chautauqua path 

where nature is my teacher,

where I learn to see things 

in their immediate appearance (Beauty)

and the relationship to their 

underlying form (Science).

Each is a part of reality,

one more surface,

the other more effect. 

Nature teaches us to think

in a harmonious way

blending the two realities,

not separating one from the other.

To see them as a 

dichotomous vision

results in our reality

being incomplete, false.

To accept the false dichotomy is easy,

our choices are comfortable —

black or white.

Thought that blends the two  

often generates hostility from both sides. 

For many, we learn to live

with the hostility by listening to nature

through which we can practice

creative intercourse among peoples.

Fall Colors On Mt. Lemmon — Except Your Musing Heart   8 comments

(Click on any of the images to see larger view in a slideshow format.)

Go, sit upon the lofty hill,
And turn your eyes around,
Where waving woods and waters wild
Do hymn an autumn sound.
The summer sun is faint on them —
The summer flowers depart —
Sit still — as all transform’d to stone,
Except your musing heart.

— from “The Autumn,” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Rain kissed over night

Leaves falling near the stream

Twisting and turning

Under the forest canopy

For now blocking the morning sun

From brightening the new

Canvass of fall colors.
