Caught In The Rain   1 comment

I tried working in an hour walking the East End Park trails before a forecasted storm.

The sky was partly cloudy as I neared the lake.

An image from close to the ground looking toward the lake.

Cloud reflections on the water.

This image of the sky and clouds reflecting off the water is deceptive because dark clouds were already beginning to build up behind me.

By the time I reach the park parking lot I was soaked. (December 29, 20022) — Images by kenne

Trails Leading To The Most Amazing Views   1 comment

May all your trails be crooked,

winding, lonesome, dangerous,

leading to the most amazing view,

where something strange and more beautiful

and more full of wonder than

your deepest dreams waits for you.

This Place Protected By A Silent Alarm   1 comment

Buttrtfly TrailThis Place Protected By A Silent Alarm

This is a good place to settle,
The desert close to the mountains
In the foothills –
Combining blue light
During the day,
Dark light at night.
Under it a white-beard man
Searching the stars
Having forgotten the way
From which I came.
. . . the innocent remain nameless.

Climbing up a mountain trail
Watching the clouds rise above
As nature goes about its changes.
Rocky and steep, the trail’s overture
Both welcomes and challenges
The spirit of the hiker.
After awhile I read and write poetry —
Opening many more doors,
Hungry to learn more
And capture the first glimpse
Of a simple universal image
To which I bring seeing.
. . . the innocent delight in the ordinary.

Last Sunday (November 4, 2012), Tom and I hiked the Baby Jesus Trail near Catalina State Park. This was a very enjoyable hike looking for the Baby Jesus rock without any luck. But, was able to get a lot of photos, which are shared on this posting.

This is the time of year many communities along the Gulf coast schedule Azalea Trail events. But it doesn’t have to be a formal event to go for a walk or drive through area neighborhoods.
