Clouds under a blue sky
can’t resist reaching down
kissing the red rocks
of beautiful Sedona Arizona.

Nurturing Each Moment Revisited   Leave a comment

Santa Catalina Foothhills — Panorama Image by kenne

Nurturing each Moment

Tucson,
nearby foothills
home of DeGrazia

darkness,
low moving clouds
moving over the mountains

music,
blues in the air
coming from the Boonduck’s

Kika,
cat on the guard
lying low in pursuit

crickets,
sing in the night
adding to the aura

heat up,
roast in the day
cooling with the darkness

whiskey,
cool on the rocks
soothing the solitude

cigar,
smoke in the air
mixing with the night wind

starlight,
brighten the sky
pushing back the soft clouds

rainstorms,
in the forecast
teasing the believers

late-night,
clock in a.m.
seeking the morning light

twitter,
of early birds
singing of existing truth

outfits,
Lycra on two wheels
biking to the mountains

crossroads,
Sonoran sun
hiking Mount Lemmon’s peak

pleasure,
mind in control
nurturing each moment

A view to the north

With its layered bands of red rock

Near the end of day.

Stormy Weather   3 comments

Stormy Weather Over The South Rim of The Santa Catilina Mountains — Panorama by kenne

A Thunderstorm

The wind begun to rock the grass
With threatening tunes and low, –
He flung a menace at the earth,
A menace at the sky.

The leaves unhooked themselves from trees
And started all abroad;
The dust did scoop itself like hands
And throw away the road.

The wagons quickened on the streets,
The thunder hurried slow;
The lightning showed a yellow beak,
And then a livid claw.

The birds put up the bars to nests,
The cattle fled to barns;
There came one drop of giant rain,
And then, as if the hands

That held the dams had parted hold,
The waters wrecked the sky,
But overlooked my father’s house,
Just quartering a tree.

— Emily Dickinson

The Arizona Trail Runs Through Sycamore Canyon in the Santa Catalina Mountains — Panorama by kenne

“She was actually learning to love Arizona.

The beauty and color and solitude,

the vastness of it had called to something deep in her.

First, she had complained of the dust, the wind, the emptiness,

the absence of people. But she had forgotten these.”

— Zane Grey

On The Shores of Lake Mescalero (Inn of the Mountain Gods, Mescalero, New Mexico) — Panorama Image by kenne

We were standing
Standing by peaceful waters
Standing by peaceful waters
Whoa, ah-oh, ah-oh
Whoa, ah-oh, ah-oh
 
Whoa, ah-oh, ah-oh
Peaceful waters
Standing by peaceful waters
Aah, baby
We gotta go now

Sedona Area Panorama (Red Rock Country) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Our continual mistake is that we do not

concentrate upon the present day, the

actual hour, of our life: we live in the past

or in the future; we are continually expecting

the coming of some special moment when

our life will unfold itself in its full significance.

And we do not notice that life is flowing life

water through our fingers.

— Father Alexander Elchaninov 

Capitol Reef National Park Panorama   Leave a comment

Capitol Reef National Park Panorama — Image by kenne

“Capitol Reef National Park is in Utah’s south-central desert. It surrounds a long wrinkle in the earth known as the Waterpocket Fold, with layers of golden sandstone, canyons and striking rock formations. Among the park’s sights are the Chimney Rock pillar, the Hickman Bridge arch, and Capitol Reef, known for its white sandstone domes. In the north are the towering monoliths of Cathedral Valley.” ― Google

“What one thinks of any region,
while traveling through,

is the result of at least three things:
what one knows,
what one imagines,
and how one is disposed.”

— Barry Lopez
