Once hidden skyline

A state with a plan.

An open-air venue where concerts take place under this structure in the summer
and in the winter it becomes an ice skating rink. — kenne

Man Decides by Anshumali Baruah

Lines on paper, stand out
The lines transform into concrete
Glass and steel find their places.
A domain is defined.

Man walks into this domain
Feelings of acceptance or refusal accompany him
A fate is decided.

The domain constructed:
Finds its fulfillment in its users
Users and activities act as one
Thus giving this domain a meaning:
A sense of being built.
But if this purpose falter
The domain degrades
Leaving a void in its place.
A pain for the creator
Irreparable to the user.

But would it not be wiser:
To include man as the lines are drawn;
To indulge him in the choices;
And thus arrive at a successful domain
Creating harmony for all?

Like An Old Tree   4 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.

Otherside of Nowhere   1 comment

Windmill B&W blog-“Old Watering Hole” — Black & White Image by kenne

OTHERSIDE OF NOWHERE

Still dusty and dry
the old place ain’t
what it used to be.

In the desert it’s hot
Thirsty for summer rains —
Yesterday was windy.

Vultures circle above
I turn away only to look back
Disappearing into clear air.

The mountains sweep up
As if floating a gray color
Over the old corral.

Soft breeze at mid-day
Vanes slowly turning
The noisy water pump.

A shadow network
Of the sunshine moves
Across dry sandy ground.

I cut down an agave stalk
To become my walking stick —
An old phase made real.

High on the ridge-side
I follow my own trail
To the otherside of nowhere.
