A White Rose To Joy On Our Anniversary — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The White Rose

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

Passion Without a Name

I unfolded my fear
and watched
the unbridled horse of your love.

I wanted his mane
to shine with
hidden fireflies,

Your hands to close around my body,
untie the blind knot
of the sleeping storm.

Yet the horse did not arrive
with its shining mane
nor the touch of your hand,
nor you, my love.

And my body became
very quiet, centered
in the vestal robe
of the hurricane.

The Zen of Visual Imagery, Revisited   1 comment

First posted June 24, 2009gettyreflection-art-6-17-04-blog“Getty Reflection” — by kenne

I love all facets of making visual imagery, e.g.,
writing,
music,
cameras,
catching the moment,
editing the moment
to share my perspective of the experience —
I could go on and on. For me, visual imagery is a passion.

In recent years I have been able to spend more time with this love,
even getting into digital video and taking on a lot of digital media projects.
However, as with any endeavor, especially the ones you love,
doing it full-time can reduce the love affair to being just another relationship.

Often, creativity suffers in the relationship.
Rather than being artistic,
you become a technician,
lacking originality and flair.
Sometimes you are so focused in the routine,
your passion becomes an obsession.

The moral:

Don’t do what you love full-time.
Make sure the love is surrounded by other endeavors,
which in turn nurtures the creative juices of your art.
Only then will you begin to feel the juices ooze from your pores.
Only then will you experience real love.
Only then will you truly be alive.

Palmers Penstemon — The Thrill Hasn’t Gone   1 comment

The thrill hasn’t gone

it’s just move

to a new place —

I’ve found it,

have you?

Some know 

where it’s at,

some don’t —

easy come

easy go. 

I get all

the love

I need

down a

new path

where 

the passion

remains —

but then,

who am I 

telling you.

Dark Spirits, To Expel Or Not To Expel   1 comment

Misc Photos June 2008Dark Spirits (The Woodlands, Texas Night, 2009) — Image by kenne

Dark Spirits

Seems like only yesterday
Just last night about midnight
Drinking in the devil’s eye spirits
On a warm southern night

All alone gazing into times past
Hexed by the light in the dark
As long contorted snakes twist
From the devil’s eye in the sky

Each playing tricks on my mind
As I listen to distant rhythms
Moving to blows of the breeze
Beating to the tune of the chimes

Feeling passion in my veins
Knowing it’s not easy
To fight off these dark spirits
Binding me in uncertainty

There are no words to describe
Still, I keep trying
Turning circles, time and again
To make these feelings go away

Seeking to liberate myself
From this arduous situation,
I maintain an ember
Still feeling the heat of night

Perhaps it’s time
To put on my garb,
Yet I’m not ready for the gate
I was there, now I’m here
