Court of the Patriarchs, Zion Canyon   2 comments

Zion (1 of 1)-3 Court of the Patriarchs blogCourt of the Patriarchs, Zion Canyon — Image by kenne

On this cloudy day

we rode the
canyon shuttle
getting off
at each stop

with family
visiting the
park for the
first time.

Concerned the
clouds might
diminish the
canyon’s beauty

soon vanished
as the clouds
began to break up
over the towering

cliffs of Navajo
sandstone that
form the Court
of the Patriarchs.

Zion Canyon is the work of water
In concert with the winds that shape the heart.
One sees a grandeur equal to one’s wonder;
Nor can one be, but of such grace a part.”

The Real Jurassic Park   Leave a comment

The Real Jurassic Park

can be found in the
deposition and preservation

of Navajo Sandstone. Dating
back to the Early Jurassic

situated on one continent
was a vast sand sea. Extreme

winds created towering dunes
of pure quartz sand

dwarfing modern Sahara. Migrating
avalanches over one another

laminating the dune surface
thus becoming more stable.

Changing over time
by climatic cycles

locking stories of time into
Navajo Sandstone and

forming the towering
Zion National Park cliffs.

Shared Gaze of Curiosity

Generations of deer
have lived with
generations of humans
in the canyons we call Zion.

No longer prey for humans
the deers of Zion graze
near where natural predators
will not venture.

Many animals seem
to understand the show
providing for an occasional
shared gaze of curiosity.

Zion National Park Majestic View Panorama   Leave a comment

Zion Majestic View Ledge(1 of 1)-33 Panorama blogZion National Park Panorama Taken From Our Balcony at Majestic View Lodge (5/20/15) — Image by kenne

I still remember those majestic views
out by the balcony railing
in the shadow of the late afternoon sun
as I captured several moments
before darkness,
waiting for the majestic view
to become an early evening glow
when the world becomes mine.

live out on a limb
where the best nectar is found
away from the norm.

my teacher told me
flowers and blossoms will die
beware of the saw.

Palmers Penstemon — The Thrill Hasn’t Gone   1 comment

Las Vegas & Zion_2015 05 20_0739_Palmers Penstemon_blogPalmers Penstemon — Image by kenne

The thrill hasn’t gone

it’s just move

to a new place —

I’ve found it,

have you?

Some know 

where it’s at,

some don’t —

easy come

easy go. 

I get all

the love

I need

down a

new path


the passion

remains —

but then,

who am I 

telling you.

Temples and Towers In A Place Called Zion   3 comments

Temples & Towers Panorama (1 of 1) blogZion National Park, Temples and Towers of the Virgin Panorama (June 10, 2014) — Image by kenne

Temples and towers
Nature’s stairway to heaven
With white angel wings.

In this promise land
A desert sanctuary
Music of waters.

Navajo sandstone
Majestic cliffs of color
Carved by rain fingers.
