Wolf Moon, 2017   3 comments

Having been born in the month of January, and given my independent nature, I feel a relationship to what some Native Americans called the Wolf Moon since it appeared when hunger wolves howled outside their villages. Technically the Wolf Moon occurred on the 11th. I seem to have more success in photographing the moon just before sunrise, so this Wolf Moon image was taken as it was about to set over the Tucson mountains on the 12th.

On cold winter nights

Hunger wolves howl at the moon

A midnight high point.

Ghost Of Desert Past   1 comment

Ghost of Desert Past

Standing high
on canyon’s edge,
the ghost of desert past
stands watch.

Resisting harsh winds,
while chiming to the beat,
of erratic gusts that
threaten passersby
hiking Phoneline Trail.

For hundreds of years
this canyon sentinel
maintains its charge.

Like old soldiers,
not to die,
only fading into time past,
already meeting with the
“vanished ones.”
