Did you ever

trip and fall

on a cactus?

Try hiking

Blackett’s Ridge

in the light of

a full moon.

nature

is the cradle

providing a

dominion

for my images. 

each image

has its place,

putting down

roots

in wandering 

eyes

passing by.

I miss not being able to be out in Sabino Canyon, which will remain closed because of the Bighorn Fire till November 1st.
The Forest Service is keeping the Canyon closed to minimize dam and infrastructure damage due to flash flooding
during the monsoon season.

On Wednesday, August 5th, some Naturalists will be part of a Zoon meeting with Santa Catalina District Ranger, CJ Woodard.
He will give an update on the Sabino Canyon closure and be available for questions and answers.

O sun!

Why have you moved on?

A minute too early.

Water over the dam.

Umbrellas ready to fall.

Empty chairs in waiting.

Sitting On A Park Bench   Leave a comment

Relaxing by the Bay-art-Edit-1-72Sitting On A Park Bench By The Sound — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Long Island Sound

I see it as it looked one afternoon

In August,—by a fresh soft breeze o’erblown.

The swiftness of the tide, the light thereon,

A far-off sail, white as a crescent moon.

The shining waters with pale currents strewn,

The quiet fishing-smacks, the Eastern cove,

The semi-circle of its dark, green grove.

The luminous grasses, and the merry sun

In the grave sky; the sparkle far and wide,

Laughter of unseen children, cheerful chirp

Of crickets, and low lisp of rippling tide,

Light summer clouds fantastical as sleep

Changing unnoted while I gazed thereon.

All these fair sounds and sights I made my own.

—  Emma Lazarus

I Gaze At A Distant Spot   Leave a comment

Getty Negative-art-72Abstract Photo-Artistry by kenne

I gaze at a distant spot
turning dark and out of focus.

Slowly the lights go out
asking questions of the moon.

Only the mountains now
gaze at a distant spot.

The sun fades away

but leave reflections

invading my thoughts.

A miniature heart

blossoms on her lips.

Getty L.A.-B&W-art-72Museum Staircase — Photo-Artistry Image of L.A. by kenne

The city is named for the angels,

And its angels are easy to find.

They give off a lubricant odor,

Their eyes are mascara-lined;

At night you can see them inserting

Gold-plated diaphragms;

For breakfast, they gather at poolside

Where screenwriters feed and swim.

— from Hollywood by Bertolt Brecht

Balance Stones-art-72Balance Stones — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Hymn to Intellectual Beauty

The awful shadow of some unseen Power
Floats though unseen among us; visiting
This various world with as inconstant wing
As summer wind that creep from flower to flower;
Like moonbeams that behind some piny mountain shower,
It visits with inconstant glance
Each human heart and countenance;
Like hues and harmonies of evening,
Like clouds in starlight widely spread,
Like memory of music fled,
Like aught that for its grace may be
Dear, and yet dearer for its mystery.

— Percy Bysshe Shelley
