We Took Our Hearts Full Pleasure   1 comment

Nude (1990) — Abstract Art by kenne

 

My Voice

Within the restless, hurried, modern world
    We took our hearts’ full pleasure—You and I,
And now the white sails of our ships are furled,
    And spent the lading of our argosy.

Wherefore my cheeks before their time are wan,
    For very weeping is my gladness fled,
Sorrow hath paled my lip’s vermilion
    And Ruin draws the curtains of my bed.

But all this crowded life has been to thee
    No more than lyre, or lute, or subtle spell
Of viols, or the music of the sea
    That sleeps, a mimic echo, in the shell.

— Oscar Wilde

Her smile
extrudes the surface
becoming an attraction
to the distraction.

Nightlight Dreams

past, resisting replay
but for stardust of yesterdays

yesterdays, imparting time and place
gently massaging forgotten dreams

dreams, giving clues to
my stardust memories

memories, fading for now
only reborn to imagination

imagination, touching the soul
engaging new moments

moments, experiencing rapture
in the joy of our love

love, living yesterday’s stardust
the music of today’s legends

legends, lighting our essence
upon which the future exist.

Capturing The Moment — Past Shadows   5 comments

joy45sawmill-i-2008-2014Past Shadows — Image by kenne

When viewing an image,
whether a photograph,
painting or a moment,
what I see is mine
and mine alone.

The resulting image 
is a product
of my experiences,
filtered through the cloth
of my culture. 

It is also a reflection
of my relationships
and the drive
to connect with
the world around me.

Each image
is captured
in my memory,

which will serve
to influence future images.

********

When looking at you
You look at me watching you,
Each viewed differently.

Nights spent together
Now are only memories
Lying next to you.

Cameras record
So that we will not forget,
Lessening burdens.

Nude Painting 9996-F III blogCome To Me — Image by kenne

The light

of my soul

coming from

the inside out

knowing that

you feel it —

so why slight it

when you want it?

. . . come to me

lie down beside me

your don’t have to explain,

I understand.

Capturing the Moment — White On Black Nude   1 comment

Black On White Nude by kenne

 
The Naked and the Nude

 — Robert Graves 

For me, the naked and the nude
(By lexicographers construed
As synonyms that should express
The same deficiency of dress
Or shelter) stand as wide apart
As love from lies, or truth from art.

Lovers without reproach will gaze
On bodies naked and ablaze;
The Hippocratic eye will see
In nakedness, anatomy;
And naked shines the Goddess when
She mounts her lion among men.

The nude are bold, the nude are sly
To hold each treasonable eye.
While draping by a showman’s trick
Their dishabille in rhetoric,
They grin a mock-religious grin
Of scorn at those of naked skin.

The naked, therefore, who compete
Against the nude may know defeat;
Yet when they both together tread
The briary pastures of the dead,
By Gorgons with long whips pursued,
How naked go the sometime nude!
(Source: a compendium of poetry)
