Like An Old Tree   2 comments

Sedona & Talking Stick ResortAuthentic Imperfection — Image by kenne

Like an old tree

standing

along the desert trail

we are not perfect —

growing

old together

recognizing

our imperfection

each step of the way

becoming

more perfect by

authenticating

our imperfection

staying

vulnerable together —

embracing

our essence.

“The whole content of my being shrieks
in contradiction against itself . . .

Existence is surely a debate.”

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart —
Try to love the questions themselves.

Do not now seek the answers which cannot be given
Because you would not be able to live them.

And the point is . . . To live everything.
Live the question now.

Perhaps you will then gradually (without noticing it)
Live along some distant day into the answer.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke

 

Dark Matrix of Matter   Leave a comment

EPSON MFP imageGlass Cactus Blossom – Computer Art by kenne

Last night I tossed in my sleep

something in a dream

was unreal, artificial, 

everything made of glass —

no hammers allowed

swinging in the dark

matrix of matter

not directly observed

just it’s gravitational effects.

“The more often we see the things around us –
even the beautiful and wonderful things –
the more they become invisible to us.
That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world:
the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love.
Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.”

— Joseph B. Wirthlin

Joy and Kenne in Bisbee, Arizona — Computer art by kenne

On a porch one afternoon
at the Copper Queen Hotel
after a discussion with the
ghosts from the days when
copper was king in Bisbee.

I took a selfie of Joy and me,
not the best photo, but good
enough to use Photoshop
filters and brushes to give it
a classic Hopperesque feel.

Of course, you may not think so.
He was a realist known to fix a
particular moment full of human 
qualities and frailties, often with
a degree of self-absorption.

Living on berries
The little seeds just past through
Sticking to the branch.
