Magic Mushroom On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

Aspen Draw August 2013Magic Mushroom On Mt. Lemmon — Computer Art by kenne

I went on this magical trip… 
Out of reality, in a fantasy world, 
Everything seemed to be so peaceful and perfect! 
All harmony… no hate…

I soon realized I got to see the raw truth of reality, 
but from a different point of view, 
of contrasts and with no metaphors nor euphemisms.

Aspen Draw August 2013Wildflowers On Mt. Lemmon — Computer Painting by kenne

wildflowers
on the mountain
stories
of peaceful times
yellow
on a confess of
green
bees in flight
back and forth
freedom
under blue skies
Friday hikes
where are they going
doesn’t matter
or does it

Ode To The Gambling House of Worship   2 comments

First posted September 2012. Over the years I have written several poems on my dislike for casinos, but needing the relationship eggs, I enter with family. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

We just got back from Rancho Cucamonga, Temecula wine country and Pala Casino in southern California where we were spending time with Joy’s family. Pala Casino Spa Resort is a nice place in the Temecula wine country near San Diego. Being the non-gambler in the family, I spent most of my time outside near the pool area reading, and writing.

 Ode To The Gambling House of Worship

Buttons pushed
Touching the screen
Smoke in my eyes —

I play.

Grabbing a drink
Easing the loses
The game goes on —

Lights flashing.

Smoke getting worse
Eyes watering
Load ringing noise —

I cry, others yell.

A gaming cathedral
Worshiping the machine
Matching the slots —

Lacking virtue.

Seeking intellectual guidance
To know the details
Of their religious addition —

Old or new.

A life structured around decline
Dazzling down
Totality…

I am—yet what I am none cares or knows; 
My friends forsake me like a memory lost: 
I am the self-consumer of my woes— 
They rise and vanish in oblivious host, 
Like shadows in love’s frenzied stifled throes 
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed 
— from “I Am” by John Clare

If you ask me to show you God,
I will point to the sun, or a tree, or a worm.

But if you say,
“You mean, then, that God is the sun, the tree,
the worm, and all other things?” —
I shall have to say that you have missed the point entirely.

— Alan Watts

Advice from a river.
Go with the flow,
immerse yourself in nature,
slow down and meander,
go around the obstacles,
be thoughtful of those downstream,
stay current,
the beauty is in the journey!

— Ilan Shamir
