Is The Monsoon Season On Its Way?   Leave a comment

Cloud-line Panorama blog-.jpgHaze and Cloud-line, More Humidity In the Air — Panorama by kenne

I was up on Mt. Lemmon today, where they are not allowing any outdoor fires at campsites because the Santa Catalina Mountains are so very dry. Even though it was a hazy day, I took the panorama with the haze and cloud-line showing how moisture is beginning to move into southern Arizona. Hopefully, we will start to see some rain by mid-June.

Sabino Canyon Esperero Trail   1 comment

Sabino Canyon Esperero Trail Panorama blogSabino Canyon Esperero Trail — Panorama by kenne

I walked the trail
passing clouds
cast their shadows
of dark gray
on the mountains.
All morning I pondered
the thought of a poem
I may never write
of this moment
missing the words
like the spring wildflowers
that never bloomed,
the land is bare
birds having migrated
south to Mexico.

Forgotten The Way By Which I Came   1 comment

Hutch's PoolSabino Creek Near Hutch’s Pool — Panorama by kenne

I wanted a good place to settle:
Cold Mountain would be safe.
Light wind in a hidden pine —
Listen close — the sound gets better.
Under it a gray-haired man
Mumbles along reading Huang and Lao.
For ten years I haven’t gone back home
I’ve even forgotten the way by which I came.

Cloudy Sunset at Puerto Peñasco — Peaceful Waters   2 comments

Sunset Panorama- blogCloudy Sunset at Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico (February 13, 2018) — Panorama Image by kenne

peaceful waters of the air
under echo’s branches

peaceful waters of a pool
under a bough laden with stars

peaceful waters of your mouth
under a forest of kisses

Beach at Rocky Point blogThe beach along the northern edge of the Sea of Cortez (February 12, 2018) — Panorama by kenne

The sun has dissolved
behind the clouds 
as the wind 
stirs up the sand
and chills the spirit.

We have just arrived
yet it seems
like time to go.
There will be time
tomorrow to watch
morning come,
listening to the
song of sunrise.

Gates Pass Area In The Tucson Mountains   1 comment

Tucson Mountains Panorama 3-blogGates Pass Area In The Tucson Mountains — Panorama by kenne (This panorama was created by merging three photos in Adobe Lightroom)

The road through the pass
is narrow with lots of curves
and no shoulders for the
many bikers going along the
crest of the Tucson Mountains.

Sunsets in the Sonoran Desert
at beautiful, especially when
viewed from Gates Pass after
spending the day at Old Tucson
or Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

Cam Boh Trails 01-21-13Sonoran Desert Scene — Panorama by kenne

The desert trail is dry
not comprehending
the absence of water.

What can a poem
for the desert say
not captured in an image?

As I hike the trails
will my words capture
what you cannot see?

Will you become aware
as a coyote scenting a rabbit
reworking your perspective? 

Yet, I find myself questioning
why put into words that 

kindled without flame.

The white line at the base of the distant mountains is probably the result of temperature inversion capturing a  large body of cold air having nearly uniform conditions of temperature and humidity that dropped overnight under clear night skies to the lowest level at the edge of the mountains — that’s my best guess.

A chill in the air,
sharp, not summer
as I hiked the trail

knowing soon I must
turn and go back,

out on the trail all alone
pondering words
gone into dry air,

tall cactus after tall cactus,
blue sky over endless mountains.
