The Person You Were And The Person You Become   1 comment

“No one can tell what goes on in between
the person you were and the person you become.

No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell.
There are no maps of the change.
You just come out the other side.
Or you don’t.”

— Stephen King; The Stand

Why!   2 comments

kenne (1 of 1)-3 art_blogSelf Portrait by kenne


Trying to understand why
Only to be shattered
By the emotions of others.

Still, I will stubbornly
Continue seeking answers
By connecting dots —

Dots that blow in the wind
Like the tumbleweeds
No longer grounded

Fueling fires of fear
Widening the desert
Of intellectual ignorance.

Kenne Self Portrait (1 of 1)-3 blogSelf Portrait (Summer, 2015)

To have never sought courage
Will be to have never turned the corner.

To have never shared a thought
Will be to have never seen a sunset

To have never used these words
Will be to have never written a poem.

kenne (1 of 1)-3_edit art blogKenne philosophizing on becoming the next president of the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN),
after returning from visiting friends and family in east Texas.

no leaders, please

invent yourself and then reinvent yourself
don’t swim in the same slough.
invent yourself and then reinvent yourself
stay out of the clutches of mediocrity.

invent yourself and then reinvent yourself,
change your tone and shape so often that they can
categorize you.

reinvigorate yourself and
accept what is
but only on the terms that you have invented
and reinvented.

be self-taught.

and reinvent your life because you must;
it is your life and
its history
and the present
belong only to

— Charles Bukowski

I cry and curse each wildfire

Breathing dust and smoke.

When Real Seems Unreal   2 comments

Kenne In Zion National Park (1 of 1) blogKenne In Zion National Park (June 10, 2014) — Image by Joy

Photoshop or not,

Nature is so beautiful

Real seems unreal.


Look for the beauty

You will find it everywhere,

Real or unreal.
