Dark Matrix of Matter   Leave a comment

EPSON MFP imageGlass Cactus Blossom – Computer Art by kenne

Last night I tossed in my sleep

something in a dream

was unreal, artificial, 

everything made of glass —

no hammers allowed

swinging in the dark

matrix of matter

not directly observed

just it’s gravitational effects.

Joy and Kenne in Bisbee, Arizona — Computer art by kenne

On a porch one afternoon
at the Copper Queen Hotel
after a discussion with the
ghosts from the days when
copper was king in Bisbee.

I took a selfie of Joy and me,
not the best photo, but good
enough to use Photoshop
filters and brushes to give it
a classic Hopperesque feel.

Of course, you may not think so.
He was a realist known to fix a
particular moment full of human 
qualities and frailties, often with
a degree of self-absorption.

Cold Mountain is a house
without beams or walls.
The six doors lift and right are open
The hall is blue sky.
The rooms all vacant and vague
The east wall beats on the west wall
At the center nothing.

Borrowers don’t bother me
In the cold I build a little fire
When I’m hungry I boil up some greens.
I’ve got no use for the kulak
With his big barn and pasture —
He just sets up a prison for himself.
Once in he can’t get out.
Think it over —
You know it might happen to you.

new energy

born again

SUBSTITUTED BY ANOTHER   1 comment

 

SkylineDriveArt-Recovered blogSkyline Drive In Shenandoah National Park — Computer Art by kenne

SUBSTITUTED BY ANOTHER

Skyline is its name
Substitute is its game
Created for one desire
Substituted by another.

Today’s desire
Substituted by another.

Sharing good times
Squeezing small limes
Twisted for one taste
Substituted by another.

Today’s s taste
Substituted by another.

No one to contact
Love becoming an act
Time with a friend
Substituted by another.

Today’s friend
Substituted by another

Morning walk in the woods
Considering all that could
Each moment of thought
Substituted by another.

Today’s thought
Substituted by another.

Climbing up the hill
Stimulating the will
Creating the next option
Substituted by another.

Today’s option
Substituted by another.

Reality is its name
Substitute is its game
Created for one belief
Substituted by another.

Today’s belief
Substituted by another.

A Poem About Spring   1 comment

Desert MuseumSpring, 2018 — art by kenne

Maybe you need to write a poem about spring.

When everything blossoming is blossoming
and everything dead is dead
and everything wants to be fucked is fucked
it’s nature maintaining the way life was
and will continue to be as a bird calls
from the tree with new green leaves.

The Bellagio Fountains Art   3 comments

Bellagio-3325_art blog IIComputer Art by kenne (Las Vegas, February 5, 2018)

Visitors
to Las Vegas
can be seen
standing
and waiting,
some up to
30 minutes
just to see
the fountains
of Bellagio,
truly one
of the best
free shows
in Vegas, 
beautifully 
choreographed to
Frank Sinatra singing
“One Singular Sensation.”
One moment
in its presence
provides a
thrilling
combination
in every move
as the water
rockets and
dances in front
of the Vegas
Eiffel Towel.

Things of Poetry, Revisited   4 comments

Esperero trail to the Ridge“Things of Poetry” — Computer Art by kenne

Things of Poetry

Poppies

line the canyon trail,

brightening

each hiker’s way.

Passing greetings

share the joy

as the morning sun

intensifies

the canyon colors

brilliantly reflected

by each poppy,

the things

of O’Keeffe —

real poetry.

Been Here Before — A Valentine Message   Leave a comment

joy45sawmill-i_blog-cohenAfternoon Delight — Image by kenne

I’ve been here before
known this place
walked this floor

lived here alone
before, I knew you.

You became my 
photographic muse
an afternoon delight
laying on a bed of red
shadows of natural light.

Blue, blue windows
opened to the sky
clouds move by
casting moments
to dream by.

Morning would come
roosters crowing
at the break of dawn
sheets still damp
moments to live by.

Imagine yesterday’s
times we’ve shared
becoming memories
fueling our tomorrows
filled with timeless love.

Now, everyone can see
you belong to me
knowing it’s so
hard to love, still
we share the look
of satisfaction.

I See You Looking At Me   2 comments

Joy (1 of 1)-3 art blogComputer Art by kenne

Hummmmm

I can see you looking at me
Behind those dark sunglasses
Sending a sign,” I’m ready.”

My doctor says no, not until after
A neurological consultation for
having experienced a possible TIA.

Hummmmm
