Forest Floor In the West — Abstract Art by kenne

Almost 100 fires and complexes are burning over one million acres across the United States. Thousands of wildland firefighters
and support personnel are assigned to incidents. To date, 34,411 wildfires have burned 2,255,218 million acres.

Now more than ever, we need your help to prevent wildfires. When you work and play in our precious public forests,
parks and rangelands, it is critical for you to be fire safe. Have spark arresters on equipment and vehicles like chain saws,
motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Exhaust systems on any vehicle can easily ignite vegetation, so drive and park in
designated areas keeping off and away from dry grass and brush. Taking these simple steps can keep our natural resources
from going up in smoke. —

Marina On the Bay — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Are become unsubstantial, reduced by a wind,
A breath of pine, and the woodsong fog
By this grace dissolved in place

What is this face, less clear and clearer
The pulse in the arm, less strong and stronger —
Given or lent? more distant than stars and nearer than the eye
Whispers and small laughter between leaves and hurrying feet
Under sleep, where all the waters meet.

— from Marina by T. S. Eliot

A Touch of O’Keeffe — Photo-Artistry by kenne

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way –
things I had no words for.

Old age is but the reduced ability and fitness to do something in mind and body.

Where Am I?   2 comments

Abstract Art by kenne

Where am I?

Where do I want to be?

Is more effort needed?

An assessment
may create more questions,
in an upside-down world
where the normal order
is reversed.

Effort is good,
but too much is bad.
Can the key to life
be knowing how much effort
is enough?

“The more I try to stay
on top of water
the more I sink,
but when I try to sink,
I float.”

“He had a habit of remarking to bartenders that he didn’t see
any sense in mixing whiskey with water
since the whiskey was already wet.”

The Hanging Tree — Photo-Artistry by kenne

 
Morning walks where dead trees 
take on a new life near the trail
by the Tanque Verde wash.
 
Falling limbs are collected 
always searching for a design
transforming life in a new way.
 
A treasure awaits the hiker 
in a state of things recovered
only the eye of the wise can see.
 
Make the invisible become visible
breaking the pact with the unseen
each day’s magic moment.

More Alike Than Different   5 comments

More Alike Than Different — Abstract Art by kenne

More Alike Than Different

Look at us,
we look alike —
similar lines,
curves,
colors,
so much in
common.

We came together
seeking
to be one, 
symmetry of 
differences
reflected
in the other
as a circle of one. 

Connected by
the rhythm
of wave lines,

slowly becoming
lost
in a moving maze —
drowning
in a sea of
Self-indifference.

Look again,
our eyes looking
beyond the other —
connections weakening
in our

once upon a time
circle of one.

Our circle of one,
now a reflection,
a hurtful delusion
of what was,
leaving only
a few 
lines
connecting
the symmetry of
pleasure and pain,
vanished as a whole.

Fabric
of the whole
lost,
no longer
a balance
between
pleasure 
and pain,
now a distant
Dylan sound,
“Behind
every beautiful thing,
there’s some
kind of pain.”

Abstract Art — What Do You See?   Leave a comment

Abstract Art — Photo-Artistry by kenne

What do you see there?

A bird’s nest?

A hand holding

A women’s breast?

Naked bodies dancing?

An old man sitting 

Drunkenly on a barstool?

But, does it really matter

For time will remove the filters.

If it is too much of a cliché, take me anyway.”

You should always know when

you’re shifting gears in life.

You should leave your era,

it should never leave you.

Chaos   Leave a comment

Chaos — Abstract Art by kenne

I’m not sure the words ocean and sea
mean the same to you and me.
Ninety-five percent universal confusion,
dark matter was born with the legitimacy
of an onion, the roar of a lion.
I sit in the rumble seat of judgment,
I damn myself for entertainment,
for wasting time on hopeless entertainment.
I am guilty of snarling lines, Gordian
knots in my “Shakespeare” fishing reels.
I must untangle this because eels
have hearts like us. The enemy
is symmetry.
In the spring of content,
I trust glorious chaos. I smell in disorder
the outhouse of order.

— from Chaos by Stanley Moss

Pipevine Swallowtail Abstract   Leave a comment

Pipevine Swallowtail Abstract — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual.
Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. 
If one could but recall his vision by some sort of sign. It was in this hope that the arts were invented.
Sign-posts on the way to what may be. Sign-posts toward greater knowledge.”

— Robert Henri
