It is better to learn early

of the inevitable depths,

for then sorrow and death

take their proper place in

life, and one is not afraid.

ourselves in unison with this order.

Nature Abstract by kenne

Is it so small a thing

To have enjoyed the sun,

To have lived light in the spring,

To have loved, to have thought, to have done;

To have advanced true friends, and beat down baffling foes?

— Matthew Arnold

White-winged Dove On Saguaro   1 comment

White-winged Dove On Saguaro — Image by kenne

Alexa, shuffle my Pandora stations —

I stream music most of the day,

sometimes it becomes indistinct,

like the sound of wind chimes, 

the cooing of white-wing doves. 

Alexa, stop!

What’s Going On In There?   Leave a comment

Two Windows — Image by kenne

Huffy Henry hid the day,
unappeasable Henry sulked.
I see his point,—a trying to put things over.
It was the thought that they thought
they could do it made Henry wicked & away.
But he should have come out and talked.

All the world like a woolen lover
once did seem on Henry’s side.
Then came a departure.
Thereafter nothing fell out as it might or ought.
I don’t see how Henry, pried
open for all the world to see, survived.

What he has now to say is a long
wonder the world can bear & be.
Once in a sycamore I was glad
all at the top, and I sang.
Hard on the land wears the strong sea
and empty grows every bed.

— John Berryman

I can see them spacing 

to find room, looking

so much alike it’s nearly 

impossible to count them.
