Sometimes you hear them

Their humming sound makes us look

Making eye contact.

Look, and you will see

Pleasure in flowers today

The desert loves spring.

Borderland Moon — Photo-Artistry by kenne
 
Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether the summer clothe the general earth
With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the night-thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.
 
— from Frost at Midnight by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Kenne David Turner Grilling On His Birthday, January 1st — Image by kenne

“This sandgrain day in the bent bay’s grave
      He celebrates and spurns
   His driftwood forty-eighth wind turned age;
      Herons spire and spear.”

Human-Kind: Be Both   Leave a comment

Tucsonan Activists —  Image by kenne

These are amazing: each
Joining a neighbor, as though speech
Were a still performance.
Arranging by chance

To meet as far this morning
From the world as agreeing
With it, you and I
Are suddenly what the trees try

To tell us we are:
That their merely being there
Means something; that soon
We may touch, love, explain.

And glad not to have invented
Such comeliness, we are surrounded:
A silence already filled with noises,
A canvas on which emerges

A chorus of smiles, a winter morning.
Placed in a puzzling light, and moving,
Our days put on such reticence
These accents seem their own defense.

— Some Trees by John Ashbery

A Place Where Each Question Contains An Answer   Leave a comment

This book club meeting took place at our home in The Woodlands, TX, on October 4, 2009. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

Cave 7903 - 2009-09-26 blog

Society of the 5th Cave Book Club Meeting

How will you know when

are you in the right place?

The secret is out!

. . . in a world where

each question

contains the answer.

You will know

that world

when you have

the right feeling

The secret is out!

Or is it?

What to do

when the feeling

is missing?

. . . sadly, your place

is not the right place.

Poster for the September 17, 2005 Blues Series Reuion – Images by kenne

This October, the Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College – Montgomery will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. One of the many successful programs that were a part of the ALL was The Blues Series, which began the same semester as ALL. Five years ago, when the College celebrated its 10th Anniversary, ALL was very involved in the all-day event, which included presenting a Blues Series Reunion. The Blues Series brought together some of Houston’s (and the country’s) best blues musicians.

Longing For Water

shadow deer, Jan ‘23

sometimes the story 
isn’t written in the light
but etched in shadows
