“This sandgrain day in the bent bay’s grave
      He celebrates and spurns
   His driftwood forty-eighth wind turned age;
      Herons spire and spear.”

Houston has a lot of wall art, especially in the near-downtown area. David, Janie, and Katelyn took me where some of the art is located yesterday.

HOUSTON 6:00 P. M.   Leave a comment

Sam Houston Park in Houston — Image by kenne

Poetry summons us to life, to courage
in the face of the growing shadow.
Can you gaze calmly at the Earth
like the perfect astronaut?

Our of harmless indolence, the Greece of books,
and the Jerusalem of memory there suddenly appears
the island of a poem, unpeopled;
some new Cook will discover it one day.

— from HOUSTON, 6 P. M. by Adam Zagajewski

Zen Fountain in The Woodlands   3 comments

Zen Fountain In The Yard of Our The Woodlands Home (May 2010) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Our yard had a lot of me
in the plants, lighting, and
the fountain where we
buried our cat, Kiko.

And there was the sweat
from the gulf coast heat,
digging through roots to
place the water reservoir.

The photo for this painting
was taken weeks before 
we left our east Texas home,
for a Tucson desert home.

Our friends and family
called us crazy for
leaving
the piney woods for a new
home sixteen hours away.

We return to Houston a
couple times each year,
having driven by our old
home only once, not

stopping, afraid of what
we might see of the old
Zen fountain and landscape
we created with love.
