“But I’ll tell you what hermits realize.
If you go off into a far, far forest
and get very quiet,
you’ll come to understand that
you’re connected with everything.”

Green is the colour of her kind
Quickness of the eye
Deceives the mind
Envy is the bond between
The hopefull and the damned.

BoliviaBrown Darner Dragonfly (Sweetwater Wetlands) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

TWISTER PAIR

Dragonflies abound
in the desert wetlands,
often landing
on cattail blades,
captured by photographers
painted by painters
for sale in shops named
“Cattails and Dragonflies.”

One of life’s
enticing combos,
inspiring poets
and mythmakers
over the relationship
existing by the water
as if it were
an unbreakable bond.

What then of
the dragonfly that
rests its two pair
on a fence
of twisted pair
that separates
the desert from
desert wetlands.

Was this a case
of mistaken identity?
Not likely, with eyes
of a hundred lenses,
so was it a
one-night stand,
brief act infidelity,
or a “middle-age crisis?

I’ve lived at Cold Mountain — how many autumns.
Alone, I hum a song — utterly without regret.
Hungry, I eat one grain of Immortal-medicine
Mind solid and sharp; leaning on stone.

Southern California September 2012Whimsical Butterfly — Photo-Artistry by kenne

There’s a naked butterfly
With black and yellow wings
On a yellow body attracted to
Hidden wonders when rain
Washes away desert dust
Letting the world change —
I’m happy to watch the wind.
