I Pray To The Birds   1 comment

Mockingbird Silouette-72Mockingbird Silhouette by kenne

“I pray to the birds because
 they remind me of what I love
rather 
than what I fear.
And at the end of my prayers,
they teach me how to listen.” 
― Terry Tempest Williams

Song of Life   Leave a comment

Western Bluebird Silhouette-72Western Bluebird Silhouette by kenne

A traveler on a dusty road

Strewed acorns on the lea;

And one took root and sprouted up,

And grew into a tree.

Love sought its shade at evening-time,

To breathe its early vows;

And Age was pleased, in heights of noon,

To bask beneath its boughs.

The dormouse loved its dangling twigs,

The birds sweet music bore —

It stood a glory in its place,

A blessing evermore.

— from “Song of Life” by Charles MacKay

A winged shadow on thistle
Flight into darkness.

Dead Saguaro Shadow_0899-ghost-of-desert-past-blog“Desert Silhouette” 

Desert Silhouette

A dead saguaro

Stands silhouetted

Against the morning sky

A darken symbol of life

As a lone hiker looks up

From the trail below

Still in the canyon shadow

Pondering the meaning

Of this dark creature

As shadows move

Down the canyon walls

Vanishing the silhouette

And any creature thoughts

Only to leave behind

The remains of what was

A Sonoran desert giant.

“Such a Beautiful Tree . . .”   Leave a comment

Sunset On The Trails & Sabino CanyonTree of Life — Image by kenne

Such a beautiful tree —
so representative of life.
Yet, we often see beauty
only in the foliage and blossoms
nature provides in one of life’s stages.
Why?

Beauty is everywhere —
there is beauty in death,
marking the stage so important
in the cycles of life.

This tree (image of) is amazing,
a sculpture in the face of the sun,
containing the shapes we use
to design our places in this world.

What image do you present
in the face of the sun?
Does it add?
Does it subtract?

Be honest!
