Dragonfly-8071-2 art blog“Wired” — Computer Painting by kenne

a poem is
a dragonfly
darting near water
looking
for a place to rest upon
filled with freshness.
a poem is
of flight down
by the creekside —
standing water.
a poem is. . .
a poem is
wired.

Butterfly Rhymes With Dragonfly   Leave a comment

Queen Butterfly-1356 Art blog IIQueen Butterfly — Computer Art by kenne

Butterfly 

rhymes with dragonfly

and water with 

life.

Butterflies

circle up and down

between my eyes.

Why was it

the butterfly

and not 

the dragonfly?

Each carries the 

inside of my soul.

Flame Skimmer — Grunge Art   Leave a comment

“So long as the sense of the observing subject remains,
there is the effort, however indirect, to control feeling from the outside,
which is resistance setting up turmoil in the stream.
Resistance disappears and the balancing process comes into full effect,
not by intention on the part of the subject,
but only as it is seen that the feeling of being the subject,
the ego, is itself part of the stream of experience
and does not stand outside it in a controlling position.”

— Alan Watts

Everything that goes into my images is based on the belief,
“as in poetry, so in photography.”
A photographer is like a poet.

“A poem will be like a picture,
and let a picture be similar to a poem.”

— Horace

“Painting is poetry which is seen and not heard,
and poetry is a painting which is heard but not seen.
These two arts (you may call them both either poetry or painting)
have here interchanged the senses by which they penetrate to the intellect.”

— Leonardo Da Vinci

 

 

Dragonfly Grange ‘n’   3 comments

This is my envoy to nothing
where I say Go, little poem — 
not out into the world of stranger’s eyes,
but off to some airy limbo,

home to lost epics,
unremembered names,
and fugitive dreams
such as the one I had last night,

which, like a fantastic city in pencil,
erased itself
in the bright morning air
just as I was waking up.

— from “Lines Lost Among Trees” by Billy Collins

Looking For A Little Afternoon Delight   Leave a comment

Dragon Fly2015 05 04_0613_edited-2 blogDragonfly image taken in the woods of east Texas by kenne

Experts may know why
dragonflies land where they choose
often landing then away they fly
only to come back for a little snooze.

Dragonfly, dragonfly perched up high
choosing a branch on which to hand tight
hoping he will catch her eye
looking for a little afternoon delight.
