Parchment crumbles, my words fade
The pen has dropped …”

Art Transforms blogArt Transforms — Computer Art by kenne

Art transforms us not with what it contains but with what it creates in us —
the constellation of interpretations, revelations, and emotional truths illuminated —
which, of course, is why the rise of the term “content” to describe creative output online
has been one of the most corrosive developments in contemporary culture.
A poem — or an essay, or a painting, or a song — is not its “content”;
it transforms us precisely by what cannot be contained, by what is received and interpreted.

— Ursula K. Le Guin

After The Fire   3 comments

Romero PoolsAfter The Fire — Computer Art by kenne

Fires destroy 
Fires renew
Opposites in
Need of
Each other.

After the fire
Comes the rain
Comes the sun
New life out of
Opposites.

Perception of
Opposites
Depends on 
The moment of
Experience.

Without experience
Moments
Are projected
As the perception
Of the other.

The other is the
Teacher w
ho meets the
Human need for a
Shared experience
Of being alive.

Standing Tall In Death   Leave a comment

Standing tall in death
facing tomorrows and
what they may bring
knowing each will change
how we see yesterday
and how we adjust
to the present — nothing
remains the same.

. . . 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 . . .

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

Ideas Bloom Where Planted

Yet not the first,
planting ideas
generates a new beginning
forming the orientation
of the next
creating a path
for others to follow.

Falling Up In A Down World   Leave a comment

Romero Pools“Connected Disconnection” — Image by kenne

Connected Disconnection

Trapped in a tailspin
with a loss for words
arms reaching out
in a world of disconnect
trying to reconnect.

Turning
reaching,
falling up
in a down world

Trapped between
the what I do
and how you react
in a world of disconnect
trying to reconnect.

Disconnected connection
over what I think
and how you feel
is this our existence?
trying to reconnect.

Still without words
the act of connecting
becomes a disconnect
is it all an illusion?
trying to reconnect.

Falling in
falling out
always looking
for the answers
trying to reconnect.

Finding the words
hanging up
on the answers
connected disconnection,
connected disconnection.

Turning
reaching,
falling up
in a down world

Connected disconnection —
disconnection.
