Purple Haze, Revisited   Leave a comment

Purple Haze (September, 2009) — Computer Art by kenne

About the time
I’m feeling high
I start acting funny —
don’t know why

Today becomes tomorrow
Or is it the end of time
Soon to be floating in
An ocean of deathless life

Feeling gratitude for God’s gift
Awaking the soul
Becoming void as I was
When I was not yet

“Turn from gazing after”
To kiss the sky
Devoid of all
Foreign images

Only to be
Born again
From inside the outside
Looking in

Jimi had a spell
On his brain
Purple in color
Inspired by a haze

Deluded by doubt
“Am I happy or in misery?”
To be answered not in the words
But the color of the haze

30 Years of Togetherness — Some kind of lovely ride.   9 comments

Kenne & Joy blogKenne & Joy, Las Vegas, 1989.
We were a couple for 16 years before getting married May 18, 2002 in Los Vegas. Thirty years of togetherness, but who’s counting.
“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.”

Secret O’ Life

The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
Any fool can do it, there ain’t nothing to it.
Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill.
But since we’re on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride.

The secret of love is in opening up your heart.
It’s okay to feel afraid, but don’t let that stand in your way.
Cause anyone knows that love is the only road.
And since we’re only here for a while, might as well show some style. Give us a smile.

Isn’t it a lovely ride? Sliding down, gliding down,
try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.

Now the thing about time is that time isn’t really real.
It’s just your point of view, how does it feel for you?
Einstein said he could never understand it all.
Planets spinning through space, the smile upon your face, welcome to the human race.

Some kind of lovely ride. I’ll be sliding down, I’ll be gliding down.
Try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.
Isn’t it a lovely ride? Sliding down, gliding down,
try not to try too hard, it’s just a lovely ride.
The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.

“If thought corrupts language,
language can also corrupt thought.”

— George Orwell

He gazes through the 
rained soaked window
into his confused mind.

Lonely in the moment
turning his head away
from my open hand.

He was not prepared
to be rejected and
broken up by life.

High Chaparral, Revisited   1 comment

Old Tucson High Chaparral-B-W blog framedHigh Chaparral (December 29, 2013) — Image by kenne

I’d saddle up ole Sugarfoot and I’d hit a mountain trail,
And time and place and boredom were no more.
I was Little Joe or Blue, riding the High Chaparral.
There were fights to fight and new worlds to explore.
