SHadows on The Path“Finding A Place To Start” — Image by kenne

A place to start

look at you, kenne g
you have taken
multi-tasking to a felt

you need to be
more focused
uncomplicated

this is what they tell me
information is good
opinion
music
poetry
photo art
all are good

but, you are inexorable

demurred, I say
I do what I do
because I can

maybe you can’t,
you’re the problem
not me

all things are connected
not an isolated island
I choose to stay linked
open secret places
plant seeds
harvest thoughts
bucket ideas

but, you discard mind droppings

I mix and match
generating energy
to form inspiration

feel the heat
see the stream
it’s all shit

the shit shits
generating food
for tomorrow’s ideas
powering the music
stand up and dance
when I’m not here
there will be a place to start

but, you can add to my pile

Decoding Poetry — Revisited   5 comments

Decoding Poetry

Poetry,
what is it?
Is it not all things
we experience —

Feelings?
Thoughts?
Ideas?
Wisdom?
Beauty?
Music?
Art?
In human existence?

Yet,
some claim
the words of poetry,
as if anointed
announcing to the world,
“I know the code!”

Poetry is not a code,
allowing entrance
only to a few
fettered and packaged
for the scholarly.

If I experience
my life
in the words of another,
it is poetry?
For it is I
who holds the code
to my existence.

In the end,
there is no right
or wrong answer –
Poetry is like dancing,
if it feels good,
do it!

A Saturday Morning With Rainer Maria Rilke   3 comments

“If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it;

blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches;

for the Creator, there is no poverty.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

imgres-3On this Saturday morning, as many before,
I spend time reading poetry and listening to music —
a time to refuel my outward being
with my inter soul.

In doing so I remind myself;
I write, therefore I am a writer;
I photograph, therefore I am a photographer –
it’s just that simple, no more.

“Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.” –Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

 

Boy And Girl — Poetry Of Love   Leave a comment

Boy and Girl — Poetry of Love — Image by kenne

Poetry of love,
Classic boy pouring water,
She embraces it.

Evening  monsoon clouds
Hug and Color the sunset,
We embrace it

A wet olive tree
Dropping over the fountain,
Life embraces it.
