Radiating out of the darkness
on a desert winter morning
stars on the ground replacing
the stars in the clear desert sky
evidence there is heaven on earth.

Bird On A Limb — Revisited   3 comments

Bird on  Limb Art July 2015-8227 blogBird On A Limb — Photo-Artistry by kenne

On an outing to photograph
wildflowers and butterflies
a little bird kept chirping,
as if to get my attention.

Staying on point,
I tried ignoring her —
the conditions for
photographing her

were not good,
but she was persistent.
So, ignoring problems with
lighting and distance

I answered her call
taking two shots.
Later, at home
I downloaded the images

and as expected,
they were not good.
But, something
about the little bird

kept getting my attention,
so I created a way
to share her
in the blogosphere.

Autumn Song

BY DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI

Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
         Laid on it for a covering,
         And how sleep seems a goodly thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?
And how the swift beat of the brain
Falters because it is in vain,
         In Autumn at the fall of the leaf
         Knowest thou not? and how the chief
Of joys seems—not to suffer pain?
Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the soul feels like a dried sheaf
         Bound up at length for harvesting,
         And how death seems a comely thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?

Come with me to Blackett’s Ridge
To hike a rocky switch-back trail.
A deep gorge designates the end
Overlooking converging canyons. 
White clouds hang from a blue sky.
Now we wait for the sun to go down
When we will return to the trailhead
Under the light of the harvest moon.

Sunset-0621 art blogAutumn Sunset — Computer Art by kenne

Watching yesterday’s sunset
before hitting the road
headed west on I-10
to southern California
with millions of other 
Thanksgiving Holiday travels.

Having made it safely
is now added to the list
of things for which
to be thankful —
a much appreciated
long list of gratitude.

 In the fall
beauty takes on
a different form
changing colors

minus the fresh
softness of spring.
