Contrast Effect

Seeing an object

Increasing the light

Darkening the background

Changing the color

Distorting the shape

Adjusting the ratio

Introducing a bias

Creating a perception

Making a judgment

Forming a reality

Sharing the existence

Those Low Down Casino Blues   2 comments

Becoming is Superior to Being

Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino Libby — Image by kenne

He set late at night,

in a “Nighthawks” setting

wishing the night was day —

busted, with those

low down casino blues.

No hotel room, and

you know it’s an’t easy

with these blues

knocking him sideways —

he’s at the ATM, confident

his luck has changed

and the trumpets will sound.

Dozing at the Pass,

laying awake dreaming, of a 

wild horse ride to paradise,

carrying him through

the blue waters,

awakening —

will the nightmare

never end, so he can

just fade away?

Fiery Skipper On Mexican Bird of Paradise — Images by kenne

I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly!  Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

~William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Still Asking “Why?”   5 comments

kenne (1 of 1) April 2015-Edit-2 blogPhoto-Artistry Self-portrait by kenne

Why? 

Trying to understand why
Only to be shattered
By the emotions of others.

Still, I will stubbornly
Continue seeking answers
By connecting the dots —

Dots that blow in the wind
Like the tumbleweeds
No longer grounded

Fueling fires of fear
Widening the desert
Of intellectual ignorance.

The goblets of dawn
are smashed.
The weeping of the guitar
begins.
Useless
to silence it.
Impossible 
to silence it.
