Happy Hour In Old Town San Diego   2 comments

Joy-2762_art blogHappy Hour In Old Town San Diego — Computer Painting by kenne

We stopped 
at the entranced
to the Mexican Cafe
for happy hour
on the patio.

“This way please,”
said the dark-eyed
women dressed
in a traditional
colorful Fiesta Dress.

We each ordered
Margaritas on the rocks
our way of reviewing
Mexican cafes
when traveling.

Music jumps
through the air,
venerable reminders
of European Polkas
brought by immigrants.

For good or bad,
our tastes for
Mexican food
continues to be 
biased by Tex-Mex.

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.
