I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly!  Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

~William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”

Biplane Making a Turn Over Tanuri Ridge   Leave a comment

Bi-plane Making a Turn Over Tanuri Ridge 7815 blogBiplane Making a Turn Over Tanuri Ridge — by kenne

In the heat
of the day
I heard a sound
in the west,
not a common
in the air today.
It’s hay day 
was during WW II,
now the biplane
can be seen
at air shows
still able to maneuver
as it did
hundred years ago
only now trilling
watchers
on the ground.

Stone Balancing — Feeling The Silent “Click”   2 comments

Stone BalancingArt Work by kenne

Like yoga, stone balancing requires patience, focus, and a deep stillness of the mind. We have several in our yard and on the patio. “In a very literal sense, it feels like creating a state of union with the environment.” – Michael Grab

Life is all about balance.
Stones connect when
They are balanced
With earth’s center
Through your body —
A silent “click.”

The first of many sunsets I have captured from our Tanuri Ridge patio.

Sunset # ***

How do you describe a sunset

when they’re all beautiful?

Yet, they are all different

and deserving of expression.

Try as I may,

words become redundant,

depleted of feeling,

left only with the silence

of nature’s best

at the end of the day —

Summer water stop
Before resting in the shade
From the mid-day sun.

More clouds moving in
Nearing the monsoon season
It’s out there somewhere.
