When Catalina Eyes Touch You
By Don Iannone

Soulful arisings overflow within me,
while standing before the sage-brown Catalina Mountains,
that stare back with soft reassuring eyes.
These eyes say "you are a part of it all,
celebrate this union, and
welcome the sudden transforming beauty
drifting through this very moment."
To call all this magical
seems to rob Tucson of its real feel--
so quiet, deep, beckoning,
and warm as the early morning sun,
giving the desert its rich colors and sharp shadows.
How can you deny who you really are
when something so powerful touches you?

Thank you Floots, Kathleen, Dan, Margie, Serenity, Andrew, Ufukhati, Pat, and Dumbdodi. Your kind comments are so much appreciated. Tucson, AZ is one of my favorite places in the whole world. It fills me in a way no other place can. Blessings to each and every one of you.
