Hotel St. Michael Window   Leave a comment

Prescott-1830 Hotel Window Art blogHotel St. Michael Window (Prescott, Arizona) — Computer Painting by kenne

Window Facing Mine

I look at the window across from my window
seeing nothing inside the hotel walls,
yet I wonder what’s going on in there?

Is somebody or something in there
looking back at me from deep inside
the room with the half-pulled curtain?

I’ve been told of ghosts living here
but I don’t believe in shadows that
move in dark spaces of dark rooms.

Yet, I find myself asking questions
of something I don’t believe — maybe
it’s because I do believe in the shadows.

How many times have I said,
“Only the shadow knows?”
Is it a belief or just an expression?

Ah, those old radio shows have a way
of coming back to haunt me, like brain
droppings making noise when stepped on

as I back away from my window
wondering if I should partially close
the curtains adding to the mystery.

. . . but then, only the shadow knows.

Just Sitting On The Front Porch   Leave a comment

The Blues Project

They called it a project,
a Blues Project, but really,
it was a party — 
a party for
family and friends 
to share
happy times, 
talk about living life,
and a love for good old blues music.

Once this party began
there would be no stopping it,
even when forced under cover
of rain,
friends laugh and
talk 
about déjà vu the  
evening had become.

Just sitting on the front porch
doing that front porch thing
telling stories now embellished
by all the good times dancing
and singing the night away
in the woods off Old Houston Road.

The Blues Project may be over
so listen if the night will let you
to the music and the stories told
and smile a smile one more time
for each Project was just a rehearsal
for what our tomorrows will bring.

A Bounty of Pigment   Leave a comment

A Bounty of Pigment_art blogComputer Art by kenne

In his robe is white
with bright colored edges
he 
sings a lullaby 
in a pale purple sound.

In this moment
the earth rotates in blue
as seen by the man
in the moon.

A bounty of pigment
his harvest of colors
randomly selected 
from the house of earth.

Hiking — The Stuff of Timeless Myths   Leave a comment

Sycamore Canyon Aunt-Art II blogComputer Painting by kenne

Hiking
moving on boots
kicking
aside trail rocks
shedding skin
like a snake

climbing
steep slopes
steadily on feet
wanting to stop
knowing each step

creating
a journey 
over
ecstatic mountains
following our guide
from behind my eyes

photographing
memories
collecting mind dropping
to be embellished
becoming timeless myths.

The Path Of Dreams   1 comment

The Path of Dreams

There were no trails where I walk.
I walk the desert, poor and broke
thinking of family in Mexico. 

Continuing north, I make a path
around the cactus and desert brush.

The sun, still low in the east,
temperature now rising faster
than the morning sun.

Low in water, I find an
old mesquite tree to rest
in its shade until late afternoon.

Then, I will continue following
the path of my dreams —
carefully watching for
green and white trucks.

I Am A Desert Trail   Leave a comment

Italian Springs 2013Dark Desert Grassland — Computer Painting by kenne

I am a desert trail

wondering

through dark grasslands

alone

but not lonely

clothed

with gladness

embraced

by the 

mountain ranges

I separate the grass

providing

a sandy channel

for mountain rains

to clean

the desert soul

never

to be wash away.
