Be empty.
Be still.
Watch everything
come and go.

This is the way
of Nature.

Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile,
and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

— John Muir

Take Heart   Leave a comment

Old Tucson High Chaparral-B-W blog-art-72.jpgReturn of the Desert Mountain — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Sun dried jerky of your past
Lies heavy on the stomach-heart
Grumbles, protests, lingers
Long, long after cactus
Arid faith
Uprooted by a desert mountain
Cloudburst flood
Has withered, blunted tines
No longer barbed
While jerky past still grumbles
Lies heavy on the stomach heart.

Lie still and watch
Lantern sun swings overhead
This banner day
Sliver moon salutes from darkened sky

Take heart.  Take heart.  Take heart.

Move the grumble upward to a song
To tines’ decay

Take heart take heart take heart

While dormant hidden succulents
Await return of desert mountain
Cloud burst flood
And full moon rises.

— From Poems of the New Old West by Jack Purcell,

Cactus Blossoms — Photo-Artistry   Leave a comment

Cactus Blossoms — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Seeing an object

Increasing the light

Darkening the background

Changing the color

Distorting the shape

Adjusting the ratio

Introducing a bias

Creating a perception

Making a judgment

Forming a reality

Sharing the existence

 Becoming an illusion

There are times

I’m not a female,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t male

I’m not a black,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a white

I’m not immortal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t mortal

I’m not a doubter,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a believer

I’m not a conservative,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a liberal

I’m not a saint,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t sinful

I’m not ignorant,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t learned

I’m not implicit
But there are times
I wish I weren’t explicit

I’m not an Islamic,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a Christian

I’m not an animal,
But there are times
I wish I weren’t a human

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I weren’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish I weren’t the opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I weren’t me

… Still, there are times
I am the opposite
Of the opposite of me

Don’t confuse my personality with my attitude.
My personality is who I am.
My attitude depends on who you are.

Dragonflies appear
Darting mysteriously
Metaphor of life.
