Comtrail of a missile

Woke up as usual and took a look at the morning sky, but I knew this one was not a cloud, so I hurried with my camera and took a few pics. Come to find out later in the news it indeed was a comtrail  from missile tests at the White Sands, New Mexico.

After Fire

There was a fire on the famous Whiskey Row in Prescott. In the back parking lot an old coca cola sign along with charcoal laid on the ground as a reminder what had happened the night before as the scene was being investigated.

A Brook

And so does the brook flow - in its own might - as the snow melts from above. It creates poetry in the empty creeks with the rush of water.

Looking in the same direction

Living is not enough just -  Sunshine must you have.To life healthiest response is joy.
The miracle is not to fly like birds in the air. To swim like fish in the water. But to walk on the earth with grace. Treat life as a coin. You can spend it any way- But you only spend it once.
Nobody can go back to his past- But anyone can start today in present-And make a new ending in future. Life’s lesson is to impart love - Not to look here and there but looking together in the same direction. Dr Shamim ali

Eagle - (Again!)

Trail To Eagle
by Greg Gough

Walk upon the trail, that links the, future with the past. Take the Oath, Live the Law. The pathway to Eagle, is steep and narrow. Your journey will require, skill and fortitude. Your reward: Knowledge and Understanding. Enough to base a lifetime on. Your challenge is to; Take the journey, Join the few and Soar with the Eagle

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;

Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls. ( I took this pic of the young eagle at Lynx Lake)

The Eagle

Treasure This King

He's as graceful as they come - A descendent from above
There is no fear nor is there shame - The mountains his nest
The skies his domain

He doesn't borrow, nor does he steal - fighting the forces of nature - to find his next meal
But he's in serious danger - with all the power that he obtains
His life may soon end - because of senseless human gains

Please treasure this king - respect as you may - He's the almighty eagle of the U.S.A. © Jerry R. Bowen
