Optical Illusion — Revisited   Leave a comment

“Optical Illusion” — Abstract Art by kenne

Virtual Illusion

Saturday evening light
Flashback to yesteryears,
Listening to the radio
Reading to a musical background.

Pausing the reading,
Surfing radio frequencies
Listening to the words
Of one-note talk shows.

Turning the dial to the left
Searching for painted words
A spontaneous overflow
Streaming powerful feelings.

Hearing words of choice and form
Words expressing the unspoken
Evoking times past
With times present.

Connecting, but questioning,
Who is this poet?
Line after line
Words shared in time.

How could this be?
Do I know her?
Read her poetry?
Heard her read?

Who is she?
Continuing to listen
Who is she?
Words replaced by silence.

Listening carefully,
Who is she?
Loueva Smith –
That’s it, Loueva Smith!

Knowing her name,
Time to Google —
Generating 21 results
One, DoubleTake #13.

Now I know
A virtual illusion
Figment of imagination
Arising out of nothingness.

But, just maybe
She does exist
In the middle
Of nowhere else to go.

Searching through office shelves,
There it was, DoubleTake #13.
Found, but not lost,
Words “…she had learned to keep quiet.”

“These Fellings” — B & W Abstract by kenne

You know it ain’t easy
For these thoughts here to leave me
There’s no words to describe it
In French or in English

`cause diamonds they fade
And flowers they bloom
And I’m telling you

These feelings won’t go away
They’ve been knockin’ me sideways
They’ve been knockin’ me out lately
Whenever you come around me

These feelings won’t go away
They’ve been knockin’ me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away
But these feelings won’t go away

Destruction — Photo-Artistry by kenne

we are 

destroying

if only we cared

having lost

Umwelt

The Courts Call To A More Staged Authentic Culture   Leave a comment

Abstract Art by kenne

The High Court’s call for

a return to a more

staged authentic culture

disregarding its

political implications

is indicative of its failure

to fully understand the

structure of modern society,

not acknowledging that

the individual is part of

a greater whole

discounting the interaction

between people

and institutions

in the community.

Circling the Sky   1 comment

Circling the Sky — Image by kenne

Dreams of tomorrow
Nurture and create a new
My eye in the sky.

Your eye may not see
The ambiguous design
Of a Rorschach test.

Circling the sky
Forming a backdrop somewhere
For one more sunset.

Building memories
Of what memories became
In the good old days.

Sonoran Abstract — Photo-Artistry by kenne

All art contains elements taken
from what is perceived as real.
The more elements are distorted,
reflecting a common ground
of color and line, allowing
each to stand alone,
while searching for new ways
to express emotions beyond
the reach of words.
