The poem,
the song,
the picture,
is only water
drawn
from the well
of the people,
and it should
be given back
to them
in a cup
of beauty
so that they
may drink –
and in drinking
understand themselves.

— Federico Garcia Lorca

An Active Osprey Nest   3 comments

Near where we were staying in Puerto Peñasco, I spotted what looked like an active Osprey nest.

After a closer investigation, I was able to see an osprey sitting this carefully created work of art. There are no trees on the desert coast of the Sea of Cortez, so the Osprey makes good use of any structure high off the ground.

Once confirming that the nest was active, I started looking around for the mate. That’s when a spotted the other osprey on a nearby power pole, already expressing some displeasure with my being too close to the nest.

The two Ospreys began calling to one another. As I moved closer to the sentry Osprey, he turned and flow to a distant pole.

The feathers of this hawk always seem ruffled due to when diving after fish, Ospreys completely submerge themselves underwater and still are able to fly away with their prey. Most other fish-eating birds of prey can only pluck fish from the surface of the water as they fly by. Like all birds of prey, Ospreys are amazing animals.

A Cloudy, Very Breezy Morning At Puerto Peñasco, Sonora   Leave a comment

Beach at Rocky Point blogThe beach along the northern edge of the Sea of Cortez (February 12, 2018) — Panorama by kenne

The sun has dissolved
behind the clouds 
as the wind 
stirs up the sand
and chills the spirit.

We have just arrived
yet it seems
like time to go.
There will be time
tomorrow to watch
morning come,
listening to the
song of sunrise.

Driftwood Fires   Leave a comment

Virginia & Outer Banks 2013Driftwood Fires — Image by kenne

birds fly high
footprints disappear
under the tide

shadows move
the sun sets
you groove

on down the shore
where good people
go looking for armour

driftwood fires
the song of water
nature’s choir

stars above
provides direction
for the lonely gulls

the silent nights
amplify the waves
passing ship lights

girls and boys spoon
embracing as they
jump over the moon.

To bring anything into your life, imagine that it’s already there.

*****

Same with anyone who’s been flying for years and loves it
still we’re part of a world we deeply love.
Just as musicians feel about scores and melodies,
dancers about the steps and flow of music,
so we’re one with the principle of flight,
the magic of being aloft in the wind! 

— Richard Bach
