And the eyes of God shine through the coyote fence.”

Clouds under a blue sky
can’t resist reaching down
kissing the red rocks
of beautiful Sedona Arizona.

I wait for the moment
I’ll return to the trails
as I did for twelve years
beneath Tucson’s blue sky
in some world of youth
and springtime. Give me,
Powers of the Universe,
the springtime but
spare me the child.

people will forget what you did, but people
will never forget how you made them feel.”

Petal Wings — Photo-Artistry by kenne

My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.

I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.

— Dylan Thomas

A future date from the past

Who speaks the sound of an echo?
Who paints the image in a mirror?
Where are the spectacles in a dream?
Nowhere at all — that’s the nature of mind!

Easter Is Gone, But Not The Bunny In The Moment   Leave a comment

Easter Is Gone, But Not The Bunny — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“Existence only becomes clear through reason;

reason only has content through existence.

By philosophizing, I seek to call attention to the limits of knowledge,

not with the skeptical purpose of disposing of knowledge altogether,

but rather in order to let the truth which always lies just beyond

those limits shine through for a moment.”

Three Sketches of Anxiety

I’ve got two hands and an urge
to yank out your teeth,

my lover said, dropping the dress
she made from my shirt

to the floor, to see the landscape
a mouth of holes might look like
.

Maybe jagged potholes on a rainslick
street
, she said, climbing over

the bed. Maybe, she winked, a prairie
dog town in West Texas after a flood
.

Madidi National Park (Bolivia) Sunset Along The Beni River (9/19/19) — Image by kenne

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,

Healthy, free, the world before me,

The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose,

Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,

Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,

Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,

Strong and content I travel the open road.

— from Song of the Open Road by Walt Whitman

He who never risks and never fails is a failure in his whole being.”
