Morning

Why do we bother with the rest of the day,
the swale of the afternoon,
the sudden dip into evening,

then  night with his notorious perfumes,
many-pointed stars?

This is the best—
throwing off the light covers,
feet on the cold floor,
and buzzing around the house on expresso—

maybe a slash of water on the face.

— from Morning by Billy Collins

Sunrise On The West Coast of Mexico   Leave a comment

Sunrise On The West Coast of Mexico (01/07/07) — Image by kenne

A bay off the Mexican west coast
the rising sun glistens around a
half sunken military boat near
a sleepy coastal village covered
with a yellow-to-gray haze.

If it is true, everything is good
fades away with time,
it is also true that rust awaits
metal resting in saltwater.

A cruise ship sat at the
entrance to the bay —
gone the sailors and hookers
up the dusty road to Tijuana —
only to be buried standing,
buried facing west.

An Autumn Sunrise On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

An Autumn Sunrise On Mt. Lemmon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Signs of autumn echoes
Throughout the forest
As time present becomes
Time past in a moment.
As the aspen leaves
Dance in the breeze
There is only the dance —
Neither moment from
Nor towards.

Arizona Madrone At Sunrise — Image by kenne

Arizona madrone is a small tree, sometimes a large shrub, found in the mountains of southeastern Arizona,
southwestern New Mexico, and northern Mexico. It can reach heights of 50 feet. The trunks of these
trees are gray and checkered, and the branches are reddish with smooth bark.

Arizona madrones are found in canyon bottoms and hillsides in oak-pine zone at elevations of 4,000 to 8,200 ft.
Look for this handsome tree while hiking in the mountains around Tucson.

Meditation means keeping one mind.
You must understand – what is life?
What is death? If you keep one mind,
there is no life, no death.
Then if you die tomorrow, no problem;
if you die in five minutes, no problem.

What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

Puerto Penasco Beach--Edit-1-blogPuerto Peñasco Sunrise — Image by kenne

In an October 10th entry, I posted a photo-artistry piece of this image. I thought I would share the original image taken during an early morning walk along the beach near the El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve in Sonora, Mexico five years ago.

Walking takes longer… than any other known form of locomotion except crawling.
Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed.

Douglass Spring-6346. blogHiking Douglas Spring Trail — Image by kenne

Tomorrow’s Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) Friday hike will be on the Douglas Spring Trail in the Rincon Mountains. For the first time in several years, I will not be participating. I will miss being on this hike.

A flat start into the morning sun
Hikers leaving behind long shadows
On a trail that will soon disappear 
As we start our climb in
The mountain’s shadow, stopping
Only to watch things themselves
Letting the sun and earth
Go about their changes.
