Indian Window On The Desert Southwest   Leave a comment

Painted Desert Inn-0093-2 art II blogDesert Southwest (Painted Desert) — Computer Painting by kenne

The water that came last winter is long gone.
“Female rain,” it’s called in Navajo:
the gentle, furtive rains that fall from
overcast skies between November and March….
What we’re waiting for now is male rain.
Big, booming, wait-till-your-father-gets-home cloudbursts
that bully up from Mexico and threaten to rip the sky.

She  labors in each moment
carefully connecting 
lines and colors
to create 
what
inspires the artist
becoming free in the moment.

Hotel St. Michael Window   Leave a comment

Prescott-1830 Hotel Window Art blogHotel St. Michael Window (Prescott, Arizona) — Computer Painting by kenne

Window Facing Mine

I look at the window across from my window
seeing nothing inside the hotel walls,
yet I wonder what’s going on in there?

Is somebody or something in there
looking back at me from deep inside
the room with the half-pulled curtain?

I’ve been told of ghosts living here
but I don’t believe in shadows that
move in dark spaces of dark rooms.

Yet, I find myself asking questions
of something I don’t believe — maybe
it’s because I do believe in the shadows.

How many times have I said,
“Only the shadow knows?”
Is it a belief or just an expression?

Ah, those old radio shows have a way
of coming back to haunt me, like brain
droppings making noise when stepped on

as I back away from my window
wondering if I should partially close
the curtains adding to the mystery.

. . . but then, only the shadow knows.

Blooming Century Plant (Agave) II   Leave a comment

Agave Cactus

You don’t squeeze tequila
from a pumped up, rubbery leaf.
Nothing is easy in Mexico,
and everything takes time,
patience, muscle. Hacking
and digging and hacking
and a deep pit and fire
and time and time and time.
I lose time, forget it at
the other end of the tequila,
but left to me, that cactus
would still be standing there
on the Sonora Desert undisturbed.
