“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am.

I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun.

I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process —

an integral function of the universe.”

― R. Buckminster Fuller

Red Sunset-Edit-2-72Sunset — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Sunsets

There are sunsets that whisper a good-by.
There is a short dusk and a way for stars.
Prairie and sea rim they go level and even
And the sleep is easy.

There are sunsets that dance good-by.
They fling scarves half to the arc,
To the arc then and over the arc.
Ribbons at the ears, sashes at the hips,
Dancing, dancing good-by. And here sleep
Tosses a little with dreams.

— Carl Sandburg

Sandpipers 

Sandland where the salt water kills the sweet potatoes.
Homes for sandpipers-the script of their feet is on the sea shingles —
they write in the morning,
it is gone at noon-they write at noon,
it is gone at night.
Pity the land, the sea,
the ten mile flats,
pity anything but the sandpiper’s wire legs and feet.
— Carl Sandburg

The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.

Taking inspiration from the likes of Lewis Carroll, Robert Frost and Carl Sandburg.

Branches reach into the dark sky

over windswept grasslands,

directing our eyes and ears

to the relationship between

the living and the dead.

Fairy Dusters dance to the mountain winds

dusting the air with the magic of color

staging the return of spring.

“. . . till they came to one wooden pole”   Leave a comment

these people of the air

these people of the wind,

has a sense of where to go and how,

how to go north north-by-west north,

till they came to one wooden pole,

till they were home again.
