Yucca Blossom-72Yucca Blossom in Molino Basin (April 24, 2020) — Photo Essay by kenne

 

 

Holding the hope of morning
I walk down the Arizona trail

mission to photograph flowers
in the dry cool mountain air

looking for objects I do not have
nurtured in the space of time.

Now in late April mountain flowers
take on a long life brought about by

elevation changes and summer rains
pushing flowers into warped time.

Spring Morning

O day—if I could cup my hands and drink of you,
And make this shining wonder be
A part of me!
O day! O day!
You lift and sway your colors on the sky
Till I am crushed with beauty. Why is there
More of reeling sunlit air
Than I can breathe? Why is there sound
In silence? Why is a singing wound
About each hour?
And perfume when there is no flower?
O day! O Day! How may I press
Nearer to loveliness?

I Capture The Present For Future Musing   Leave a comment

I move closure to
Mastering the medium
With each photograph.

The camera’s eye
Reveals an uncharted world
Waiting to be launched.

Time is running out,
So I capture the present
For future musing.

There they were, just there
Yellow fireworks shooting off
In a field of green.

Some beautiful things
Like small desert wildflowers
Hide among the rocks.

The London Rocket is a naturalized weed native to Europe. It is most common in riparian areas, fields, drainage ditches, and in vacant lots. Because of the timing of desert winter rains this year, this weed seems to be everywhere. “The common name ‘London rocket’ comes from its abundance after the Great Fire of London in 1666. It was also noticed on bomb sites after the Blitz.”

A Spring Bouquet   Leave a comment

The same wildflowers, a different spring.
What matters is that it is spring.
What matters is that they return each spring.
What matters is each spring will be different.
What matters most is that the same wildflowers
           always return with each different spring.
