“I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.”

Blossoms and Butterflies

In Sabino Canyon with a group of kids
someone spotted a butterfly flying by
suddenly landing on a nearby wildflower
attracting our attention as a progression
of butterflies began to fill space around us —
smiles and pleasure with the moment.

“To know the way, 
we go the way, 
we do the way.
The way we do,
the things we do,
it’s all there in front of you.
But if you try too hard to see it,
you’ll only become confused.
I am me and you are you.
As you can see; 
but when you do 
the things that you can do, 
you will find the way.
The way will follow you.” 
― Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

Butterfly In A Dark Dream   Leave a comment

Two-tailed Swallowtail-3254 art blogButterfly In A Dark Dream — Grunge At by kenne

In the fall I think of butterflies.
In my dreams, they are dark
posing among my thoughts.
I work to remember the impossible
by leaning toward and away
as a butterfly seems to.

Orange Sulphur Butterfly-1680 II blogOrange Sulphur Butterfly Galaxy — Image by kenne

A butterfly
     wrapped
in floating shapes
the mountain air
     under a
peaceful blue sky
where my heart 
     dances with
reflected tree shadows
moving with the wind.

I will not take back
     one butterfly,
     one flower,
     one fallen giant ponderosa
all belonging
where trails provide
     avenues 
for friends sharing
nature's reawakening.

Butterfly Rhymes With Dragonfly   Leave a comment

Queen Butterfly-1356 Art blog IIQueen Butterfly — Computer Art by kenne

Butterfly 

rhymes with dragonfly

and water with 

life.

Butterflies

circle up and down

between my eyes.

Why was it

the butterfly

and not 

the dragonfly?

Each carries the 

inside of my soul.

No Names

I don’t know the flower or the butterfly’s name,
sometimes it’s not important when the art
is created for posterity not for a reference book.

On this late afternoon in early November,
as the slanting sun reflects off the patio
glass top table putting a stop to my work,

it was not that long ago that I would surrender
to the sun, retreating to the shade of the olive
tree before it became only a long shadow,

moving to the breeze, over the doves atop
the adobe wall as they gather the nerve
to fly down to the patio water fountain.

I thought of other autumn days whose shadows
are not limited to early morning and late afternoon,
deepening the blue of the north sky over the mountains.

Slowly the contrasting earth and sky colors
are giving way to dusk, an exalted dwindling light
going down, time rendered in magentas and mauves

as the bleeding canyon shadows now void of light
an illusion neither above or below the canyon rifts —
night and day always together yet forever apart.

“. . . to the soul,
the most minute details
and the most ordinary activities,
carried out with mindfulness and art,
have an effect far beyond
their apparent insignificance.”

Indigo Blue

I paint you

pixie green

in a background

of indigo blue.

You kiss

the last red

and yellow

blossoms,

the contrasting

colors

of late summer

soothe the soul.
