Finding Serenity At The Center Of It All   Leave a comment

Sabino Canyon-Pano-72Sabino Canyon — Panorama by kenne

I love this poem. Like any poem that resonates, it does so in one’s own heart, head, and hands
connecting us to the world around us, for good or bad.

Machines are an extension of who we are. When produced by the right values,
the result will be the right thoughts. “Right thoughts produce right actions and
right actions produce work, which will be a material reflection for others
to see of the serenity at the center of it all,” understanding that we’re connected with everything.

All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace

I like to think (and
the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers
live together in mutually
programming harmony
like pure water
touching clear sky.

I like to think
(right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully
past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms.

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace.

Teaching Kids In Sabino Canyon-blogAnother Fall of Teaching Children About Nature In Sabino Canyon 

For some,
It’s a lot of yada, yada, yada
For others,
A real learning experience
Forming a lifetime of respect.

Nature 
by Henry David Thoreau

O Nature! I do not aspire
To be the highest in thy choir, –
To be a meteor in thy sky,
Or comet that may range on high;
Only a zephyr that may blow
Among the reeds by the river low;
Give me thy most privy place
Where to run my airy race.

In some withdrawn, unpublic mead
Let me sigh upon a reed,
Or in the woods, with leafy din,
Whisper the still evening in:
Some still work give me to do, –
Only – be it near to you!

For I’d rather be thy child
And pupil, in the forest wild,
Than be the king of men elsewhere,
And most sovereign slave of care;
To have one moment of thy dawn,
Than share the city’s year forlorn.

always in between   2 comments

Image by kenne

home is where I am
home is not where I am
always in between

I am an island of consciousness
I have a cosmic consciousness
always in between

life is now
death is now
always in between

existence is being
existence is becoming
always in between

I am free
I am in prison
always in between

everything is implicit
everything is explicit
always in between

nature is an artifact
nature is art
always in between

nature must be trusted
nature must be mastered
always in between

humans are good
humans are bad
always in between

a sense of law
a sense of equity
always in between

there is a natural order
there is no order in nature
always in between

life has purpose
life is purposeless
always in between

Yellow Flower — Creating a New Consciousness   Leave a comment

Balboa Park Flowers-1973 blog“Yellow Flower in Circles and Squares” — Image by kenne

Sometimes to appreciate beauty
it must be taken out of context
to capture a new perspective
based on my love of nature, sex
and life in a new consciousness
for the flower is neither
a subject nor an object
apart from being a flower.

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat
match the beat of the universe,

to match your nature with Nature.
