This is autumn by the creek
almost anything can happen.
This is where you will find
the first morning light,
little fish in small stagnant pools —
Do they sense time is running out?

These images are near the dam area of Sabino Creek, which has been dry for some time.

stone wall and shot to rags please know that I think that a
pretty good way to depart this life. It beats old age, disease,
or falling down the cellar stairs.”

Looking for Sonoran Toads in Sabino Canyon   2 comments

Above the Dam-2971 blogThe monsoon rains bring new life to the Sonoran Desert. This past week has experienced some very good rain fall, especially in the mountains. The start of the monsoon season brings out the Sonoran toads, but they breed in water, and even with the recent rains we have had several months of no rain and Sabino Creek remains dry. The above photo was taken this morning, but based on sighting a few miles up the creek, there maybe water flowing over the dam by night fall.

Sonoran Toads-2964 blogDown from the dam, there are few pools of water that Jeanne, Dan and I explored this morning and found some toads. The mating season will last only a few days, so with more rain expected today and tomorrow, and with water coming down the creek, the toads will probably be very active the next couple of days.

NOW WE WAIT

The creek has run dry
now we wait
now we wait for rain
from monsoon storms
soon to form
over 
desert mountains
now we wait
now we wait daring
these days of dust.

Desert Oasis
Shaded escape from the heat —
Nature’s waterhole.

Sometimes drying up
Before the monsoon season —
Desert high and dry.

“When you sit in silence long enough, you learn that silence has a motion.
It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water.
Its color is silver.
And silence has a sound you hear only after hours of wading inside it.
The sound is soft, like flute notes rising up, like the words of glass speaking.
Then there comes a point when you must shatter the blindness of its words,
the blindness of its light.”

― Anne Spollen, The Shape of Water
