Tucson Folk Festival 2013My Muse — Photo-Artistry by kenne

(In these times, we will have to stay apart so we may be able to come together.)

dancing muses

dancing
because that’s what they do —

I know, I was there
feeling the energy

creative energy 
calling
the dancing muse

she appears
always colorful,
always free

not confined
to life’s rules

an expression of life
streaming
feelings of Duende

down the centuries
from the ancient muse,
Terpsichore

we drink
the playful spirit

delighting
a perpetual thirst

plucking the chords
inside the soul

The Joy of Looking Through My Scopophilic Lens   Leave a comment

the Joy of looking

looking through the looking glass

mise en abyme

“In its Greek meaning, the verb “to see” incarnates theoretical man,
an omnidirectional ball of open eyes.
What purpose does theory serve?
The surveillance of relations, or the examination of objects?” 

– Michel Serres, “Panoptic Theory”

I didn’t realize how much I needed a “Diunna Fix” till I was out doing a morning walk listening to my iTunes music. I like to shuffle through the music, when “Growing Up and Growing Old” (On the CD, Trying To Hold On) started playing, which is one of my favorite Blues/Gospel tunes. I knew then, I would be listening to more Diunna today.

We are pleased to have known Diunna for about twenty years. Joy and I consider her a very close friend. And when it comes to singing the Blues, there’s none better. Here’s another video from the same show, in case you also need a “Diunna Fix.” Get a load of Jonn’s guitar playing need the end of this video, the Del Toro really comes out!

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 Columbine Wildflower, My Mountain Muse II   1 comment

sometimes I whisper

to my mountain muse —

come to my place.

come tomorrow.

on the way home

I thought of her

the yellow strips,

the dividing line.
