Mt. Lemmon Fall Colors – Photo-Artistry by kenne

Looking up through the trees
what was a green canopy
has become brown and gold
against the bright blue sky.

Slowly the leaves will fall
providing a new carpet leaving
behind the season’s name soon
to be covered by winter snow.

Black Man’ — Photo-Artistry by kenne

‘We pledge allegiance
All our lives
To the magic colors
Red, blue, and white
But we all must be given
The liberty that we defend
For with justice not for all men
History will repeat again
It’s time we learned
This world was made for all men’

— from Black Man by Stevie Wonder

Hummingbird Feeder Art by kenne

I’ve been watching the pattern hummingbirds seen to follow coming to the feeder on our patio, especially
when I’m on the patio. I divided it into three stages, and I created a short video of those stages.

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.”

Abstract Art, 2006   Leave a comment

“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

— Clarence Copeland Greenwood

Destruction — Photo-Artistry by kenne

nature

tells us

we are 

destroying 

the human-nature

relationship

if only we cared

having lost

Umwelt

as the fire

and the rose

become one
