Optical Illusion — Revisited   Leave a comment

“Optical Illusion” — Abstract Art by kenne

Virtual Illusion

Saturday evening light
Flashback to yesteryears,
Listening to the radio
Reading to a musical background.

Pausing the reading,
Surfing radio frequencies
Listening to the words
Of one-note talk shows.

Turning the dial to the left
Searching for painted words
A spontaneous overflow
Streaming powerful feelings.

Hearing words of choice and form
Words expressing the unspoken
Evoking times past
With times present.

Connecting, but questioning,
Who is this poet?
Line after line
Words shared in time.

How could this be?
Do I know her?
Read her poetry?
Heard her read?

Who is she?
Continuing to listen
Who is she?
Words replaced by silence.

Listening carefully,
Who is she?
Loueva Smith –
That’s it, Loueva Smith!

Knowing her name,
Time to Google —
Generating 21 results
One, DoubleTake #13.

Now I know
A virtual illusion
Figment of imagination
Arising out of nothingness.

But, just maybe
She does exist
In the middle
Of nowhere else to go.

Searching through office shelves,
There it was, DoubleTake #13.
Found, but not lost,
Words “…she had learned to keep quiet.”

The Will To Live   2 comments

Internalizing Existence — Abstract by kenne

I seek to satisfy the Will
Through art and philosophy
To better cope with
The problems of Being
While seeking direction
For Becoming in the will to live.

This is a driving force to
Consume moments, things
Ideas, goals, and facts only to
Possess a state of being,
Where nothing remains but
Abandonment and boredom.

This is more apparent in the
The constant appearance of death
Taking place in the reality of
The world around us that is crazy,
sad, violent reality of existing

in a state where the mind and body
Are often in a conspiracy against.

We see the world around us
Through each experience
Creating personal filters
Used to interpret what is reality
Therefore, what is real is not real
Resulting in becoming a prisoner
Of our own making.

“These Fellings” — B & W Abstract by kenne

You know it ain’t easy
For these thoughts here to leave me
There’s no words to describe it
In French or in English

`cause diamonds they fade
And flowers they bloom
And I’m telling you

These feelings won’t go away
They’ve been knockin’ me sideways
They’ve been knockin’ me out lately
Whenever you come around me

These feelings won’t go away
They’ve been knockin’ me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away
But these feelings won’t go away

The Courts Call To A More Staged Authentic Culture   Leave a comment

Abstract Art by kenne

The High Court’s call for

a return to a more

staged authentic culture

disregarding its

political implications

is indicative of its failure

to fully understand the

structure of modern society,

not acknowledging that

the individual is part of

a greater whole

discounting the interaction

between people

and institutions

in the community.

A Memphis Blues Club   Leave a comment

A Memphis Blues Club — Abstract Art by kenne

“I’m a bluesman moving through a blues-soaked America, a blues-soaked world, a planet where catastrophe and celebration-
joy and pain sit side by side. The blues started off in some field, some plantation, in some mind, in some imagination, in some heart.
The blues blew over to the next plantation, and then the next state. The blues went south to north, got electrified and even sanctified.
The blues got mixed up with jazz and gospel and rock and roll.”

— Cornel West

Forest Floor In The West   2 comments

Forest Floor In the West — Abstract Art by kenne

Almost 100 fires and complexes are burning over one million acres across the United States. Thousands of wildland firefighters
and support personnel are assigned to incidents. To date, 34,411 wildfires have burned 2,255,218 million acres.

Now more than ever, we need your help to prevent wildfires. When you work and play in our precious public forests,
parks and rangelands, it is critical for you to be fire safe. Have spark arresters on equipment and vehicles like chain saws,
motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Exhaust systems on any vehicle can easily ignite vegetation, so drive and park in
designated areas keeping off and away from dry grass and brush. Taking these simple steps can keep our natural resources
from going up in smoke. —

The rivers are dry
Residents are out early
A mourning dove coos.

Record temps daily
Excessive heat warnings out
Thank God for AC.

Where Am I?   2 comments

Abstract Art by kenne

Where am I?

Where do I want to be?

Is more effort needed?

An assessment
may create more questions,
in an upside-down world
where the normal order
is reversed.

Effort is good,
but too much is bad.
Can the key to life
be knowing how much effort
is enough?

“The more I try to stay
on top of water
the more I sink,
but when I try to sink,
I float.”
