“Complications,
ambiguities,
nonsequiturs.
I keep 
searching
for clarity . . . lucidity;
knowing each time I seek that
I’ll become more entangled.

No. I’m not bored.
Just scared.
I’m 
moving toward
a sort-of silence . . .

I know what you’re thinking —
Bull-shit!
Bull shit!
Bull Shit!

Since the
significant things

I want to say
have the wrong

inflections;
intonations

for most arenas
of conversation:

I ramble on
into oblivion.

A series of nonsequiturs.”

Poolside blog IIPoolside, January 15th — Computer Art by kenne

Poolside

sun and blue sky
sunscreen and music
seaweed hat and hot tub
birthday 77 — thankful
more sunscreen
alone, why
existential moment
searching for clarity
becoming entangled
more sunscreen
music plays on
time present
time past
now, conditions
timeless moments
caught in limitation
being and un-being
feeling easy
cause for wonder
sudden shift in
sunlight
more sunscreen

Life Needs Contrast To Give Us Perspective.   9 comments

Del Sol_20111229_1050 blogImage by kenne

Life needs contrast to give us perspective.
By increasing contrast,
we increase clarity,
achieving an erotic form of dark inspiration,
thus providing definition
to the same shades of gray —
“concrete shapes in search of their void.”
