Now what?

 

Sunset Over The Tucson Mountains   Leave a comment

Sunset Over The Tucson Mountains — Image by kenne

I look at a sunset

and begin to wonder

what is the relationship

between the senses

and matters of beauty,

art and taste responding

one’s feelings and emotions?

The quality of being.

A Tucson Sunset — B&W by kenne

The power of stories

and sunsets become

daily escape hatches

from the tragic realities 

of human existence.

Black Mountains Highway Into The Sunset In Northwest Arizona — Image by kenne

“And soon it is nothing but beautiful warmth and wind and speed and sun down the empty road.
Sometimes it’s a little better to travel than to arrive.”

Lake Woodlands Sunset (October 1, 2009) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

When I lived in the forest

it was not always easy to see 

the sunset for the trees.

After a short trail walk

I would spend some time

at the lake and nearby dam

before crossing the bridge 

to set under a gazebo

watching motorless boats

moving silently across the lake.

“Clouds come floating into my life,

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,

but to add color to my sunset sky.”

― Rabindranath Tagore

After All Is Exhausted, Nature Remains   Leave a comment

Sunset — Image by kenne

After you have exhausted what there is
in business, politics, conviviality, and so on –
have found that none of these finally satisfy,
or permanently wear – what remains?
Nature remains.”

Madidi National Park Sunset   Leave a comment

Madidi National Park (Bolivia) Sunset Along The Beni River (9/19/19) — Image by kenne

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,

Healthy, free, the world before me,

The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose,

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,

Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,

Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,

Strong and content I travel the open road.

— from Song of the Open Road by Walt Whitman

 

Sea Of Cortez Sunset   Leave a comment

Sea of Cortez Sunset (02/11/16) — Image by kenne

3/12/86/ #3   I asked my dad why he didn’t worship Ricky Ricardo,
who was Latin, instead of Ward Cleaver who was white.
     Because Ricky Ricardo is not Mexican. He’s Cuban.
     But Ward Cleaver’s not Mexican.
     No, but he’s not Cuban.
     And that was that.

A fortunate man
Watches each end of the day
Just an illusion.

Somewhere South of Town — Image by kenne

In a field of green

Riding into the sunset

Somewhere south of town.


Coming to day’s end

Following her lead back home

Slow pace step by step.
