You are educated. Your certification is in your degree.
You may think of it as the ticket to the good life.
Let me ask you to think of an alternative.
Think of it as your ticket to change the world.

So life can move on.

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.

John Boyle O’Reilly

Petal Wings — Photo-Artistry by kenne

My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.

I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.

— Dylan Thomas

He who never risks and never fails is a failure in his whole being.”

Quote From The Four Winds   Leave a comment

“As we know, there are lessons to be learned from history.
Hope to be derived from hardships faced before.
We’ve gone through bad times before and survived, even thrived.
History has shown us the strength and durability of the human spirit,
In the end, it is our idealism and our courage, and our commitment to one another
–what we have in common–that will save us.”

— from “The Four Winds” by Kristin Hannah

Stumble On   Leave a comment

Hiking Shoes — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Stumble On

My hiking shoes rest in the garage

Next to the hiking poles, yet

I continue to stumble on — 

Stumble on down life’s path.

A life of jogging, enduring pain

Followed by a decade of hiking

Enduring pain in an old man’s body,

Yet I continue to stumble on —

Stumble on down life’s path

Trying not to let a stumble

Become a fall on life’s path.

What Is A Lemon?   Leave a comment

Meyer Lemon Blossoms — Photo-Artistry by kenne

What is a lemon?
Is it a seed?
A blossom?
Pollen?
Fruit?
A tree?

All the above,
each is a stage
playing a part — 
connection of parts
forming a whole
in nature.

Always dependent
on water
on sunlight
on bees
on wind
on nature.

Hall View — Photo-Artistry by kenne

In The Darkness

I sit and stare out
Trying to see through the black
As moments go by.

Black moments aren’t long
Yet can be very scary
View of life changes

A new perspective
Delivering a new worth
On aging and time.

Shaken to the core
Seeing real-life at last
Closeness without fear.
