Living In The Desert   3 comments

Blooming Over Night — Image by kenne

I’ve lived in the desert —
now many springs
surrounded by beauty
that comes and goes
utterly without regret
each season I capture
moments of immortal
medicine still provides
a sharp and solid mine.

but by the moments that take our breath away.

Signs Of May In Tucson   Leave a comment

Palo Verde Blossoms and White-winged Dove Atop a Saguaro — Image by kenne

There are many signs of May being here; however, two really stand out: (1) Yellow Palo Verde Blossoms are everywhere;
(2) have arrived and a ready to be a pollinator for the Saguaro cacti. When saguaros flower, white-winged doves move
from flower to flower, sipping nectar and pollinating the plant. Once the flowers become fruit, the doves have a new food source.
