Bluejay On Seed Block — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Everyone likes birds.

What wild creature is more

accessible to our eyes and ears,

as close to us and everyone in the world,

as universal as a bird?

— David Attenborough

Bee on Coneflower (East End Park, May 27, 2022) — Image by kenne

In an open meadow

near the forest

coneflowers

in every direction

sway in the breeze

attracting honey bees

as we walk the trail

a guest in the park.

A visitor in another land

mimicking other sounds 

as noted by Shakespeare

singing to a Mozart tune

only to be blamed for 

the decline of other birds.

Long neck

long legs

okay,

what the hack

waiting for the

right moment

becoming part 

of the silence

what else is

a great blue

to do.

Early Morning Ride On Waters Smooth As Glass (Lake Houston, May 27, 2022) — Image by kenne

My photographs are easy to comprehend,

which is not always the case with art and poetry.

If a reader doesn’t understand a poem, 

just listen to it. Like life, exposure to it

is part of its power.

Stary Sacz, A Poem by Adam Zagajewski     Leave a comment

Red-bellied Woodpecker (Kingwood, Texas) — Image by Hugh Poland

Stary Sacz

A woodpecker in his red cap suddenly brought back
the stationmaster in Stary Sacz.
Over the station rose a little town,
that is, an enormous market and convent of Poor Clares;
each house had one window holding jars of borscht and pickles.

The innkeeper’s daughter was so thin
that she kept bricks in her backpack to outwit the wind
when she crossed the viaduct above the train tracks.
The wind never got her, but other elements weren’t idle,
especially Nothingness and her rich suitor, Mr. Time.

Adam Zagajewski

******

Robert Pinsky wrote in The New Republic: “[In the poetry of Adam Zagajewski] the unmistakable quality
of the real thing–a sunlike force that wilts clichés and bollixes that categories of expectation–
manifests itself powerfully . . . Like a fish breaking water . . . the achievement of these poems [“Without End”]
is partly in that act of rising above a lived-in element. In Zagajewski’s work, the engulfing, ferocious
historical reality appears as our habitat–not a well of horrors to be borrowed for rhetorical thunder,
not an occasion for verse punditry, not a mere backdrop for sensibility. And the perception of that habitat
has a mysterious, elating power.”

Tufted Titmouse   Leave a comment

Tufted Titmouse, Kingwood, Texas (October 9, 2021) — Image by Hugh Poland

The Tufted Titmouse is not found in the southwest but is common in eastern deciduous forests and
a frequent visitor to feeders. The large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest gives these
birds a quiet but eager expression that matches the way they flit through canopies, hang from twig
ends, and drop in to bird feeders. When a titmouse finds a large seed, you’ll see it carry the prize to
a perch and crack it with sharp whacks of its stout bill.
