Doubtful Canyon, 360   Leave a comment

Doubtful Canyon, 360 (12-08-12) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Standing In The Eye

Look around
what do you see?

A bright sun
in a blue sky

above a desert
of rocks and sand

surrounded by
mountain ranges —

look again and
you will see life

you can only see
standing in the eye.

Climate Change — Abstract Art by kenne

black and gray
drowns
out the blue
oceans
full of plastic
poison
in our water
virus
in the air
deserts
are dryer
water
in the streets
glasers
are melting
forests
are burning
times
are changing

My soul’s shadow
raps around the moon.

My heart is resting
in a bed of dreams.

My eyes open wide
just before dawn.

Creosote Seed Pod — Image by kenne

If the blue sky is a fantasy,
what will become of innocence?
What will become of the heart
if Love has no arrows?

And if death is death,
what will become of poets?
and things in a cocoon
which no one remembers?
Oh sun of hopes!
Clear water! New moon!
Dull souls of stones!
Today I sense in my heart
a vague tremor of stars
and all roses are
as white as my sorrow.

— from Autumn Song by Federico García Lorca

Under androgynous sky
Sun or moon
Father or mother

The camera never lies
But the photographer
Knows how to fib

BoliviaCopacabana, Bolivia On Lake Titicaca — Image by kenne

In the green morning
I wanted to be a heart.
A heart.And in the ripe evening
I wanted to be a nightingale.
A nightingale.

(Soul,
turn orange-colored.
Soul,
turn the color of love.)

In the vivid morning
I wanted to be myself.
A heart.

And at the evening’s end
I wanted to be my voice.
A nightingale.

Soul,
turn orange-colored.
Soul,
turn the color of love.

— Federico García Lorca

Cholitas Woman Painting   Leave a comment

BoliviaCholitas Woman — Photo-Artistry by kenne

It was only a couple of decades ago Bolivia’s “cholitas” were stereotyped and
discriminated against, now riding the crest of a resurgence that has seen them
transform from being “maids of the middle classes” to having real clout in the
economic, political and fashion worlds.

It seems like a sunset,
but really,
it is dawn.”

“To Make Soft . . .” Revisited   1 comment

“To Make Soft” — Abstract Art by kenne

To Make Soft . . .

Words,
words are everything

Feelings,
feelings are everything

Struggling,
struggling to share feelings

Placing,
placing petitions of desire

Door,
to the door of your heart

Shut,
shut not the door

Love,
love may break the heart

Scorn,
scorn not what we do

Looking,
looking for peace of mind

Truth,
the truth will set you free

Explaining,
explaining not what is real

Complicated,
too complicated to follow

Knowing,
knowing your time to go

Lifetime,
lifetime is not time at all
