Lake Robbins Bridge — A Flashback   1 comment

Lake Robbins Bridge — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Lost
 

Drawn within its midst
Are signs that could be comprehended
The same signs I thought I could interpret
These signs seem to be nothing
They could mean something
Still in these unknown dreams

It’s snippet visions of flashback
Clicking like the camera’s shutter
Blindsided by the flash
Surrounded by a support swarm of bees
Hope and dream maybe it’s own fantasy

Could be the dreams that I thought of
The dreams that I could have wished
A dream that could be a tell-all tale
This dream could be just a fantasy
Maybe a fate of its own destiny
If I could only get its true impact

This interpretation could be crossroads
A crossroad that could answer it all
It could free me or imprison me
Could be the downfall or success
Maybe an ending with sorrow or joy
Might be answered in my next lifeline

Right Place At The Right Time   2 comments

Lake Woodlands Sea Serpent (1996) — Image by kenne

Right Place At The Right Time

Dressed for work, I open
the front door to a sun
masked in a morning fog.
Immediately, an image came  
to mind of the Lake Woodlands 
sea serpent five miles to the east.
Quickly, I grab a camera and
a tripod knowing the image
I was seeking could be gone
by the time I got to the lake.
My camera, loaded with
a roll of twenty-four exposures
I carefully mount it onto the
tripod near the lakeshore.
Camera settings for shooting
in fog can be challenging,
so I decided to take eight shots,
bracketing each allowing for three
exposures for each shot I would take.
Days later, after the film was developed,
I get the result I wanted — eight great
photographs three of which remain mounted
in a grouping on our living room wall.
I still have the original negatives for being
in the right place at the right time.

I fly far without wings
or illusions.
I immerse my body in sunlight, wholly,
motionless, like a stone shaped
in ancient time.
My soul rests in my brain—
I see it drag in the shadow like the long tail
of the thieving magpie that visits me, magically calm.

This image and poem predate selfies and my blog.
Why is the poem addressed to “Mr. Joe?”
I have no idea.
“Do not seek answers
which cannot be given you . . .”

“Is It, Or Is It Not?”   1 comment

Foggy Morning — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“Is it, or is it not?”

Look Again,
The image you see
Is not what is.

Look again,
The image you see
Is not what was.

Look again,
The image you see
Is not what will be.

Look again,
The image you see
Is not what is real.

Wine for Two, Revisited   Leave a comment

Deck Shots“Wine for Two” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Wine for Two
(May 2008)

Picture this,
the setting sun
beaming streams of light
through the trees.

Occasionally moving
with the breeze,
sending beams dancing
across the glass tabletop.

Captured for the moment
in two glasses of wine,
only to be released forever
to the hearts of each lover.

A visual of the mind
seeking a mindless void
for each heart to fill
but a fragment of the matrix

The new field of vision
changing the way things are seen,
the glasses in the picture
forever changed to one.

Azalea Bloom-2-blogLate Bloomer (Azalea) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In early spring the south and gulf coast are abound with azalea blossoms. When we moved to the Arizona desert from the gulf coast, we brought along a potted azalea plant. Each spring our little plant had many blossoms. However this spring there were no blossoms. But much to our surprise in September one blossom emerged. — kenne
