His call is clear
a chip followed
by another chip
then another
moving as in a
constant motion —
chip, chip.

As I grow older
the world becomes
stranger with new
challenges paired with
my 
own anxieties from
which I work on
a new story of life.

Late Fall In Sabino Canyon Photo Essay   Leave a comment

The large cottonwoods, Arizona Sycomore, Ash, Willows common to riparian area along Sabino Creek share their color around the Holiday Season — nature’s gift to our beautiful canyon.

The trail leads through
the towering saguaros,
I search for yellows and reds
near the dry creek.

Leaves in sequence fall
fulfilling the plan
guarded by nature
in fragments of gold.

I stopped to wonder,
not knowing the random
planting in the entrails
of Sabino Canyon.
