A fruit potpourri.

Old Abandoned House   5 comments

Abandoned (1 of 1)_B&W blogOld Abandoned House (Alamos, Sonora, January 28, 2016) — Image by kenne

this old house
has a story to tell
of joy and pain
of the family

it provided a home 
shelter from the
winter cold
and summer storms

now abandoned
no longer a home just
a house made of stone

and rotten wood

Morning Is Bright — B&W   Leave a comment

Alamos Street (1 of 1) B&W blog.jpgMorning is Bright — B&W Image by kenne

morning
in black and white
listening
to soft jazz

new light and passion
born
in the moment
of eternal morning

releasing negative energies
of past efforts
with the morning sun
my cares pass as

for a moment I am
childlike
in a world
false positives.

Traditions embody mythic time,
they record historical time as well.
Who the Mayo are today depends on 
those who preserve the ancient practices.

Black and White Desert Scene — “Time Present And Time Past”   3 comments

Milagrosa Loop (1 of 1)-21 Black-White blog“Time present and time past . . .” — Image by kenne

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.

— T. S. Eliot

Ah You Foes That In Conflict Have Overcome Me   4 comments

         Poverties, Wincings, and Sulky Retreats

Ah poverties, wincings, and sulky retreats,
Ah you foes that in conflict have overcome me,
(For what is my life or any man’s life but a conflict with foes,
    the old, the incessant war?)
You degredations, you tussle with passions and appetites,
You smarts from dissatisfied friendships, (ah wounds the
    sharpest of all!)
You toil of painful and choked articulations, you meannesses,
You shallow tongue-talks at tables, (my tongue the shallowest of
    any;)
You broken resolutions, you racking angers, you smother’d
    ennuis!
Ah think not you finally triumph, my real self has yet to come
    forth,
It shall yet march forth o’ermastering, till all lies beneath me,
It shall yet stand up the soldier of ultimate victory.

— Walt Whitman

Tom sent this Whitman poem to me the day before my 65th birthday — “I knew you would like it.”
He was correct!
