Painted Lady,

elixir of

colors

true love of

flowers

under exquisite

in the shadow of

mountains

remembering all

goodbyes.

Society is like a stew.

If you don’t stir it up every once in a while

then a layer of scum floats to the top.

No Time For Despair   1 comment

NogalesPainted Lady — Photo-Artistry by kenne

There is no time for despair,
no place for self-pity,
no need for silence,
no room for fear.

We speak,
we write,
we do language.

That is how civilizations heal.

Resting on nearby flower
Pondering next move.

A Passing Butterfly   Leave a comment

I gently rub
my beard
in deep thought
distracted only
by an occasional
butterfly
passing by
in the middle
of the day.

I savor
the moment
rubbing 
white whiskers
navigating through
mind droppings
reaching out
to catch 
a falling star.

The desert sky
bluer than the 
bluest of blues
a backdrop to
sun-scalded red
creating visuals
turning to words
honed by the soul
itching to be scratched.

Painted Lady — Zen Art   Leave a comment

NogalesPainted Lady — Zen Art by kenne

“Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly,
fluttering hither and thither,
to all intents and purposes a butterfly.
I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly,
unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked,
and there I was, veritably myself again.
Now I do not know whether I was then
a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly,
dreaming I am a man.”

— Zhuangzi
