Smoke & Haze-art-72Smoke and Haze In the Catalina Foothills — Photo-Artistry by kenne

We must make the most of life’s ups and down

when downs seem to overwhelm

do everything to lift up life through images

revealing its most brilliants.

Rainbow Connection   2 comments

I still believe that someday we’ll find the Rainbow Connection.

Rainbow Connection
Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what’s on the other side
Rainbows are visions
They’re only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we’ve been told and some chose to
Believe it
But I know they’re wrong wait and see
Someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me
Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it’s done so far
What’s so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What so we think we might see
Someday we’ll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me
Have you been fast asleep
And have you heard voices,
I’ve heard them calling my name,
Is this the sweet sound that calls
The young sailors,
The voice might be one and the same.
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it
It’s something that i’m supposed to be,
Someday we’ll find it
The rainbow connection…
The lovers, the dreamers and me
La lala la lala la la la lala la la la

Of Many Worlds in This World

Just like as in a nest of boxes round,
Degrees of sizes in each box are found:
So, in this world, may many others be
Thinner and less, and less still by degree:
Although they are not subject to our sense,
A world may be no bigger than two-pence.
Nature is curious, and such works may shape,
Which our dull senses easily escape:
For creatures, small as atoms, may there be,
If every one a creature’s figure bear.
If atoms four, a world can make, then see
What several worlds might in an ear-ring be:
For, millions of those atoms may be in
The head of one small, little, single pin.
And if thus small, then ladies may well wear
A world of worlds, as pendents in each ear.

Two Bees On A Cactus Blossom   2 comments

Prickly Flower Blossom-art-72-2Two Bees On A Cactus Blossom — Photo-Artistry by kenne

She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”

Dark In The Sunlight   1 comment

Maiden Pools Hike“Dark In The Sunlight” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

A late afternoon breeze

sunlight shines through

in the shadow

of the olive tree

telling me of the

dark in the sunlight

as the music plays

I watch you from afar

dancing on this spring day

the things I’ve held close

have moved on

as I circle

trying to get my being

out of the experience

into the movement of change

becoming dimly aware

of the moment —

whatever will be,

will be.

I Went To The Desert . . .   Leave a comment

Sonoran Sunset-72Catalina Foothills Sunset — Image by kenne

I went to the [desert] because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life,
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

— Henry David Thoreau

An open skylight

Equal parts broken sunlight

Is magical light.

Changes the rhythm

As colors move through the room

Giving soul to space.
