and eventually in one’s own.

Standing At The Altar Of Nature

When we stand at
the altar of nature,

we stand with the greats;
Ralph Waldo Emerson,
Henry David Thoreau,
and John Muir,
each having helped define
our relationship
with nature and language —
“every natural fact is a symbol
of some spiritual fact,
. . . words are signs of natural facts.”

Nature’s beauty becomes
a source of spiritual energy
connecting all things
into a universal whole
with the energy of our
thoughts and will.

We stand at nature’s altar
not separate from her,
seeing us in the flowers,
insects, animals, mountains,
creating a unified landscape
of our inward and outward senses.

Like all relationships,
the experience depends
on the degree of harmony
between us and nature,
therefore becoming a gift
granted while walking with nature
as she is embraced in our minds –
Enlighten, she shares her secrets,
making the universe more “transparent.”
Yet the gift may only offer a glimpse,
to be shared in images and words,
charming all living things.

Moon Man — Photo-Artistry by kenne

(This poem was originally posted a several years ago.)

. . . guilty.

Embracing reason
Sharing time
Finding reality
Existing in space
For these things I am . . .

Loving the underdog
Catching the moment
Believing others’ lies
Crying alone
For these things I am . . .

Watching sunsets
Experiencing truth
Awakening before dawn
Catching the light
For these things I am . . .

Taking things apart
Looking for curves
Believing in art
Believing in you
For these things I am . . .

Caring about life
Climbing trees
Walking in pastures
Keeping stray dogs
For these things I am . . .

Believing in Hobbits
Flying the redeye
Losing my head
Expressing anger
For these things I am . . .

Sharing expectations
Learning from asking
Solving problems
Admiring thought
For these things I am . . .

Talking to plants
Understanding cats
Swimming nude
Experiencing love
For these things I am . . .

Improvising life
Rejecting suppression
Questioning rules
Asking, “Why?”
For these things I am . . .

Making mistakes
Forgiving myself
Taking offense
Forgiving others
For these things I am . . .

Listening in silence
Always learning
Making things happen
Giving respect
For these things I am . . .

Being timid
Becoming self-assured
Being assertive
Being misunderstood
For these things I am . . .

Feeling the Blues
Embracing imagination
Overcoming mediocrity
Expressing gratitude
For these things I am . . .

Loving poetry
Reading poetry
Quoting poetry
Writing poetry
For these things I am . . .

Assessing existence
Separating the noise
Being in love
Going crazy
For these things I am . . . guilty

One of my early photo-artistry images. — kenne

Becoming is Superior to Being

Cactus Blossoms — Image by kenne

Contrast Effect

Seeing an object

Increasing the light

Darkening the background

Changing the color

Distorting the shape

Adjusting the ratio

Introducing a bias

Creating a perception

Making a judgment

Forming a reality

Sharing the existence
