Questionable deals
A cattle trucking corral
Ranchers bow to greed.

Blossoms and Butterflies

In Sabino Canyon with a group of kids
someone spotted a butterfly flying by
suddenly landing on a nearby wildflower
attracting our attention as a progression
of butterflies began to fill space around us —
smiles and pleasure with the moment.

The Outpost   Leave a comment

Various Outposts

You traded places
with the mystery — fire-torn, insulated leaves,
the steady eyes of the huckleberry —   (Haven’t you

been sad most of your life? Come on, 
all those outposts in the middle . . . they say the end
of growth is that you’ll suffer “purely” . . .)

One night, remember? No envy or hope.
What you sought
was here, what was done

could not be undone by you: there was the owl,
the night’s vice president,
the tangled sheets of moon —

the West
invented itself,

then
reinvented itself — 

first by cowboys,
then
by landowners,

which changed its
tone and image,

so much so
 now only the
makings of myths,

not history.

Coyote Fence — Computer Painting   Leave a comment

Doubtful Canyon Weekend Dec 2012Computer Painting by kenne

You ask me what’s a coyote fence? A crooked line of cedar poles
Surrounding our adobe, our refuge from the road
Some nights we can see light of fires as Indians dance
And the eyes of God shine through the coyote fence.

— from “The Light Beyond the Coyote Fence” by Tom Russell
