Tinder waves of light
Soften by dark scattered clouds
Moving in and out.

” . . take one as needed”   5 comments

Sunsets & Yard Flowers September 2012Tucson Sunset — Image by kenne

Why I live in Tucson, “. . . take one as needed.”

The sky is more than blue,
it’s “Tucson blue,”
as I walk the trails,
sometimes in pain,
but always convivial
in fellowship with nature
where there is strong
medicine in the air —

. . . take one as needed.

Landscapes draw inspiration,
subtle and complex
as an O’Keeffe painting,
everywhere you look
(with a trained eye)
stories of the past
can be heard
in your mind’s ear —

. . . take one as needed.

Allowing the mind
to enclose infinity
(yes, the mind can)
for the moment
to accommodate
all the sounds
all the smells
all observable images — 

. . . take one as needed.

Diversity, a word
often heard when
describing the Sonoran desert
(the source of that concept)
and the purposes
all living things play
trying to be worthy
recipients of each breath —

. . . take one as needed.

Each day brings
an appreciation
for every moment,
that every second
does really count
as time builds moments
that will forever echo 
off the mountains —

. . . take one as needed.

When not hiking the trails
I continue learning,
learning about desert ecology
and the ways of the past
so that I can be part
of those people
who came before me
and sow their seeds —

. . . take one as needed.

Here we have city ways 
and village ways,
a yin and yang balance
creating a special blend
allowing those who 
dream to live in between
the Tucson blue
and the desert night stars —

. . . take one as needed.

Each day ends
with memorable sunsets
where troubles cease
providing a fountain of thoughts
becoming the stuff of poems
often remaining silent
nurturing the inter spirit —

. . . take one as needed.

When there are no clouds in a desert sunset, it’s just another beautiful sunset. But when clouds move in the sunset takes on something special, which gives me a reason to capture nature at its best.

There are places
created for all deities,
poorly translated
to the non-deities.

Once at Cold Mountain, troubles cease —
No more tangled, hung-up mind.
I idly scribble poems on the rock cliff,
Taking whatever comes, like a drifting boat.

Any sorrows the day may bring
cannot last beyond day’s end 
dying in the eyes of the setting sun.
