Mirror Watching People

Mirror, mirror on the wall
You image my world with integrity

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Your integrity gives my existence validity

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Give me insight least controlled by others

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Together we can weave a world of peace

. . .? . . .?

coffee
dripping
honey on the muffin

frogs
singing
refuse to jump

blues
crying
heat all around

skins
dragging
drop to show

result
correcting
reset question position 

hubble
looking
big-bang theory

verdict
hiding
in the fine print

whiskey
swallowing
barely enough

head
watching
tv talking heads

seasons
existing
between hot and cold

high
soaring
broken winged bird

depleted
circling
glass half full

tattoo
pawing
another bare ass

exercise
hiking
back to nature

. . .? . . .?

Insolation Controls in the Age of Anthropocene
(Understanding Global Warming for Nonbelievers)

anthropocene
newly coined
unknown to
joe the Plumber
a new human
condition
argued as
invalid
only to be
based
on the invalid
alignment of
insolations
maxima and minima
questioning the new
condition
of our condition

Sunrise In The Canyon   2 comments

Sunrise (1 of 1) blogSunrise in Sabino Canyon Recreational Area — Image by kenne

This morning the canyon is closed.
The government has shut down again.
Still, the sun comes up unaware as
Shadows move among the coyote or deer — 
Watch me rise and go.

A Raven Morning_Oil blogA Raven Morning in Sabino Canyon — Computer Painting by kenne

The ravens paint the picture 
interrupting a manifestation of being
when what seems close is still far away

on a dark and cloudy morning,
yet knowing not to sit in silence.

Poetry, What Is It?   4 comments

April & Jason's WeddingOuter Banks, North Carolina — Computer Painting by kenne

Decoding Poetry

Poetry
What is it?
Is it not all things
Feeling?
Thoughts?
Ideas?
Wisdom?
Beauty?
Music?
Art?
in human existence?

Is it not all things
Love?
Hate?
Despair?
Fear?
Greed?
Charity?
of human experience?

Yet,
some claim
the words of poetry,
as if anointed
announcing to the world,
“I know the code!”

Poetry is not code,
allowing entrance
only to a few
fettered and packaged
for the scholarly.

If I experience
my own life
in the words another,
it is poetry –
for it is I
who holds the code
to my existence.

In the end,
there is no right
or wrong answer –
poetry is like dancing,
if it feels good,
do it!
