Snow On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

Mt. Lemmon Snow 2012 87-72-2Snow On Mountain — Image by kenne

In the mountain’s it’s cold

Always been cold, not just this year.

Jagged scarps forever snowed in

Woods in the dark ravines spitting mist.

Grass is still sprouting at the end of June,

Leaves begin to fall in early August.

And here am I, high on mountains,

Peering and peering, but I can’t even see the sky.

Snow On The Mountain Hoodoos   Leave a comment

Hoodoos.
Distant and lonely.

Wearing snows caps
given to them, a gift

from father winter
an infinity of whiteheads.

The sun softens the snow
water runs down cracks.

The magnificent junipers
white branches dripping.

Hoodoos.
Distant and lonely.

Three Ravens-II-72.jpgThree Ravens Of Christmas — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Ravens high on a snow-covered tree
Carrying on a winter conversation
Shaking snow on passersby.
What fun for them and those watching
Sharing the spirit of a new-fallen snow
Passing clouds and a nipping wind
Add mystery to a wintery scene.

Snow Reaches Lower Levels Of The Santa Catalinas   Leave a comment

Yesterday we had an inch of rain with the temperature staying in the low forties in the Catalina Foothills allowing snow to accumulate as low as 3,500 feet.Mt. Lemmon probably had two feet or more of snow.

This morning clouds cover the Catalinas, but late yesterday as the clouds began to lift I was able to capture a few images. Isolated storms are forecasted for today with additional snow above 7,000 feet.

Capturing The Moment –“Who Includes Diversity, and is Nature . . .”   3 comments

This image by naturalist Phil Bentley captures the essence of Walt Whitman’s poem,”Kosmos”.

Kosmos

BY WALT WHITMAN

Who includes diversity and is Nature,

Who is the amplitude of the earth, and the coarseness and sexuality of the earth, and the great charity of the earth and the equilibrium also,

Who has not look’d forth from the windows the eyes for nothing, or whose brain held audience with messengers for nothing,

Who contains believers and disbelievers, who is the most majestic lover,

Who holds duly his or her triune proportion of realism, spiritualism, and of the æsthetic or intellectual,

Who having consider’d the body finds all its organs and parts good,

Who, out of the theory of the earth and of his or her body understands by subtle analogies all other theories,

The theory of a city, a poem, and of the large politics of these States;

Who believes not only in our globe with its sun and moon, but in other globes with their suns and moons,

Who, constructing the house of himself or herself, not for a day but for all time, sees races, eras, dates, generations,

The past, the future, dwelling there, like space, inseparable together.
