Avalon Harbor, Catalina Island   Leave a comment

Avalon Harbor, Catalina Island — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Avalon Harbor 

An oasis for boaters
with numerous moorings.
Go on land and enjoy
a bite to eat and drink.
Hike along the trails
and through the canyon.
A place to calm the mind
and heal the soul.

Neutral Touches Interwoven   Leave a comment

Sabino Canyon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

I am a lone raven high
above the canyon wall
circling up, then down
as hikers make their way
on the old mule trail up
to a series of switch-backs
opening into a meadow
where many options prevail
going east, going west
before turning back north
to the mountain called Lemmon.

I am a lone raven blessed
to fly above other mortals
circling up, then down
but still, I work hard to fly
seeing images of life below
inspiration of an alien being
a curious extrovert, I call out
taken as a signal by some
just a lot of noise by others
still unnoticed by others
neutral touches interwoven.

An Ensenada Date   Leave a comment

An Ensenada Date (January 7, 2007)

Yoga powers.
To make oneself invisible or small.
To become gigantic and reach to the farthest things.
To change the course of nature.
To place oneself anywhere in space or time.
To summon the dead.
To exalt senses and perceive inaccessible images, of events on other worlds,
in one’s deepest inner mind, or in the minds of others.

— Jim Morrison

Arches At Del Sol (October 17, 2015) — Image by kenne

Yet, experience is an arch wherethro gleams
that untravl’d world whose margin fades forever and forever when I move.”

Let Us Build Bridges   1 comment

Selma, Alabama is the Ninth Poorest City in Amarica Per Capital (August 10, 2021)
Selma Gave America the Right to Call Itself A Democracy

We still have many bridges to CROSS,
So come on ya’ll and LET US!

Let us start, Yes you and me
With a simple and easy decree,
To do something simple, EVERYDAY,
To uplift Ourselves and Our Families,
In small, Nugget-size Ways!

So,

When STONES are THROWN to Slay
Us ALL,
We Must, We WILL, We SHALL, build
bridges instead of walls!

And so,

We catch their stones and build
bridges of Respect and LOVE for
Ourselves, Our Families, and ALL
Communities who share this World!

We catch their stones and build 
bridges because, EVERYONE 
matters equally in the World!

Life must be lived moment by moment.

Each moment carries a message,

a lesson for us.

Clouds But No Monsoon, Yet — Image by kenne

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all
