Desert Spiny Lizard   Leave a comment

Desert Spiny (Sceloporus magister) Lizard — Image by kenne

These are medium to large lizards with snout-vent lengths ranging from 2¼ to 5¼ inches (63 to 138 mm).
These robust lizards have keeled, pointed scales. Background color is usually subdued gray, tan, or blue
with a striking wide, purple stripe down the back and single yellow scales scattered on the sides (S. magister),
or scattered turquoise scales mixed with tan and brown on the back and sides (S. clarkii). Both species have a
dark collar under or around the neck; males have vivid blue throats and under-bellies. Females develop
orange to red heads during the breeding season.

Back from my morning walk
Time for coffee on the patio
And watching birds at the feeder.

A Storm Is Coming   Leave a comment

A Storm Is Coming — Image by kenne

A storm is coming
Dark clouds are on the horizon
I can feel it in the air
The wind is picking up
There’s a feeling of electricity
The sky is a light muted gray
The clouds are moving quickly
Some seem to touch the earth

A storm is coming
I can feel it in the air
I can feel it deep in my bones
There are sounds of thunder
They sound like drums
Lightning strikes dart across the sky

A storm is coming
I can feel it in the air
Mother Nature is shaking
Change is coming

A storm is coming
Of that I am sure

Snake In A Tree   Leave a comment

A Coachwhip Snake In A Palo Verde Tree — Image by kenne

He moved quickly across the road before me.
Trying to ready my camera, I followed him into the brush.
Thinking I had lost an opportunity to photograph him
when I saw him climbing a nearby palo verde tree.
This time I was ready as he twisted his long black body
up the tree before going out a dead limb as if to pose.

Panther and Sombrero Peaks West of Tucson — HDR Image Taken from Wasson Peak Trail by kenne

Panther Peak sits in the northernmost reaches of the western unit of Saguaro National Park in the Tucson Mountains northeast of Tucson, Arizona. Sitting just west of Safford Peak (locally known as “Sombrero Peak”), Panther Peak is a rustic little desert mountain providing views of the northeastern Tucson suburbs and mountains beyond. — Source:

Rainbow Painting (House of Sky) by kenne

The future is waiting
like a short-lived rainbow
poised on the tongue
of the artist and poet
such is the house of sky.

Death In The Canyon   Leave a comment

Dead Saguaro In Sabino Canyon (January 15, 2014) — Image by kenne

The skin is the first to go
in the beginning protected 
from the sun by a nurse tree.

This symbol of the Sonoran Desert
so slow to grow in the beginning
going unnosed for years
in the shadows of the nurse tree.

We teach children about this icon
by having the guess the age
of a saguago based on its heigh.
