Crossing The Border 

Senescence begins
And middle age ends
The day your descendants
Outnumber your friends.

A Bounty of Pigment   Leave a comment

A Bounty of Pigment_art blogComputer Art by kenne

In his robe is white
with bright colored edges
he 
sings a lullaby 
in a pale purple sound.

In this moment
the earth rotates in blue
as seen by the man
in the moon.

A bounty of pigment
his harvest of colors
randomly selected 
from the house of earth.

Truth Never Dies   Leave a comment

Katie's Painting - 99 framedGuest Artist, Katie Turner Bailey

Katie FaceBook Profile II

Truth never dies. The ages come and go.
    The mountains wear away, the stars retire.
Destruction lays earth’s mighty cities low;
    And empires, states and dynasties expire;
But caught and handed onward by the wise,
    Truth never dies.

Though unreceived and scoffed at through the years,
    Though made the butt of ridicule and jest,
Though held aloft for mockery and jeers,
    Denied by those of transient power possessed,
Insulted by the insolence of lies,
    Truth never dies.

It answers not. It does not take offense,
    But with a mighty silence bides its time.
As some great cliff that braves the elements
    And lifts through all the storms its head sublime,
It ever stands, uplifted by the wise,
    And never dies.

As rests the Sphinx amid Egyptian sands;
    As looms on high the snowy peak and crest;
As firm and patient as Gibraltar stands,
    So truth, unwearied, waits the era blest
When men shall turn to it with great surprise.
    Truth never dies.

Hiking — The Stuff of Timeless Myths   Leave a comment

Sycamore Canyon Aunt-Art II blogComputer Painting by kenne

Hiking
moving on boots
kicking
aside trail rocks
shedding skin
like a snake

climbing
steep slopes
steadily on feet
wanting to stop
knowing each step

creating
a journey 
over
ecstatic mountains
following our guide
from behind my eyes

photographing
memories
collecting mind dropping
to be embellished
becoming timeless myths.

Prickly Pear Blossom On A Morning Walk   Leave a comment

“. . . the truth is that as soon as you start walking,

all that noise, all those rumours, fade out.

What’s new? Nothing:

the calm eternity of things, endlessly renewed.”

— Frédéric Gros
