Been Here Before — A Valentine Message   Leave a comment

joy45sawmill-i_blog-cohenAfternoon Delight — Image by kenne

I’ve been here before
known this place
walked this floor

lived here alone
before, I knew you.

You became my 
photographic muse
an afternoon delight
laying on a bed of red
shadows of natural light.

Blue, blue windows
opened to the sky
clouds move by
casting moments
to dream by.

Morning would come
roosters crowing
at the break of dawn
sheets still damp
moments to live by.

Imagine yesterday’s
times we’ve shared
becoming memories
fueling our tomorrows
filled with timeless love.

Now, everyone can see
you belong to me
knowing it’s so
hard to love, still
we share the look
of satisfaction.

The Perfect Trilogy

On a hot Sunday 
we ride a twisting
two-lane highway to
a Texas Ice House
Near Cut & Shoot
where the beer
and blues music
releases bikers
inner desires
listening to 
“My Baby Don’t
Wear No Panties”
fueled by women
showing their tits —
blues, beer, and tits,
the perfect trilogy.

TOGETHER

Time after time, I picture you,
Red lipstick, a touch of rough.

One drink of wine, wanting more,
What you’re suppose to.

Get down – walk on your lips,
See my guarantee.

Every night about this time,
Having a reason to live.

Once inside,
Thank you baby.

How sweet it is,
Looking for my Mojo,

Early in the morning,
About the break of day.

Red roster says,
Cock-a-doodle-do!

Capturing The Moment — Past Shadows   5 comments

joy45sawmill-i-2008-2014Past Shadows — Image by kenne

When viewing an image,
whether a photograph,
painting or a moment,
what I see is mine
and mine alone.

The resulting image 
is a product
of my experiences,
filtered through the cloth
of my culture. 

It is also a reflection
of my relationships
and the drive
to connect with
the world around me.

Each image
is captured
in my memory,

which will serve
to influence future images.

********

When looking at you
You look at me watching you,
Each viewed differently.

Nights spent together
Now are only memories
Lying next to you.

Cameras record
So that we will not forget,
Lessening burdens.

Box Springs Trail

The ground we walk on,
the plants and creatures,
the clouds above
constantly dissolving
into new formations –
each gift of nature
possessing its own
radiant energy,
bound together by
cosmic harmony.

Mixed Up Spirits In The Moonlight . . . Still Singin’ Our Birthday Songs   Leave a comment

Mixed Up Spirits In The Moonlight

In all my years of working
I knew there was
more to life
than making money.
It was all about a
“love of life,”
of doing things
with and for others.

The more things I did,
the more I was pulled
in different directions
by 
obligations,
responsibilities and
desires —
being “mixed up”
was a way of life,
like a spirit in the night.

My experiences
became the ingredients
I gathered in
my love of life —
including the “wild times”
I may have pushed
into life’s backrooms,
and closed the doors.

Often,
music and poetry
have a way of
opening those doors
in the spirit in the night —

like Springsteen’s
“Spirit in the Night:”

“Me and Crazy Janey
was makin’ love
in the dirt singin’
our birthday songs.”

His words bring back
those feelings of
the fire once there.
“Crazy Janey” and her
“Mission Man,”

something right
out of the past —

“She felt so nice,
just as soft as a
spirit in the night (all night).”

. . .still singin’ our birthday songs —
mixed up, mixed up, all mixed up!

kenne

p.s. Being mixed up is good!
Plus, July is a birthday month for a my “crazy Janey” —
still singin’ as long as Bruce plays for us!

“I see great things in baseball.” – Walt Whitman

“. . ., spring training is not really baseball. It’s imitation baseball. It’s a bunch of people doing impressions of baseball. It’s that way in the stands, too. Hohokam Park in Mesa, Arizona, is a little Wrigley Field, with lots of blue caps, knots of people from Chicago’s near north side (there are Soba noodles available for them) and Arlington Heights and Des Moines (fried pork loin sandwiches are available for them), like members of some university club in a distant city, all reliving moments displaced not so much in time as in place. Even Ronnie Woo is there, the legendary and ageless Cubs fan dressed in blue pinstripes and warming up his “Cubs woo!” cry for the coming season.” — from “Letter from Spring Training (Mesa, Arizona)” by Peter Ferry
