A Dry Sabino Creek   Leave a comment

Thursday Elementary-11 -Sabino CreekA Dry Sabino Creek In Sabino Canyon Recreation Area (October 17, 2019) — Image by kenne

Once upon a time
Water flowed over
Large and small
Boulders now left
Bathing in the sun
Thirsting for a kiss
From mountain water
Now gone underground.

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder . . .
he [or she] needs the companionship of at least one adult
who can share it, rediscovering the joy, excitement, and
mystery of the world we live in.”

— Rachel Carson

This is the second posting on Ken’s painting in Sabino Canyon, the first was last Friday (March 1, 2019). What a perfect time of year to be painting in Sabino Canyon, especially creek scenes.

“I find my inspiration in the created world but it is just a starting point on the journey of creating art. I am excited to find the inner essence of a place or a moment in time and then apply my own emotions. It is exciting to see the right shapes, colors and values come together. Each element in a painting (a shape with value and color) is like a note in music. In a pleasing musical composition, there are just the right number and type of notes in the right arrangement.” — Ken Requard

We walk
the lower canyon
after spring rains.
The creek
runs swiftly 
from
mountain snow pelt.

Cottonwoods
beginning to leaf,

wildflowers
cover the ground —

a new cycle of life.

Neither here or there.

Floating Leaves

A light rain falls on leaves
Floating on the shallow water
Above the Sabino Creek dam
On a gray sky January day
Forgetfull of all except the silence.

On a fall morning
Standing guard.

Youngster runs
Under nearby bush
For safety.

Romero Pools“In the Moment” Photo-Artistry by kenne

In the moment
She ponders life
Resting attention
On the slowly
Moving backwaters
Cascading between
Two large boulders
Picking up speed
Before being captured
In a large pool of water.

Forgotten The Way By Which I Came   1 comment

Hutch's PoolSabino Creek Near Hutch’s Pool — Panorama by kenne

I wanted a good place to settle:
Cold Mountain would be safe.
Light wind in a hidden pine —
Listen close — the sound gets better.
Under it a gray-haired man
Mumbles along reading Huang and Lao.
For ten years I haven’t gone back home
I’ve even forgotten the way by which I came.

— Gary Snyder

Melting mountain snow
Brings new life to the canyon
Looking down for miles.
