A Fun Day On The Beach (August 2021)– Photo-Artistry by kenne

On this winter day
it’s nice to look
back on the fun
days of summer
being in the sun
with bikini-clad girls. 
Eye popping!

I Am The People —   Leave a comment

“The Worker” — Image by kenne

I AM the people — the mob — the crowd — the mass.
Do you know that all the great work of this world is
done through me?
I am the workingman, the inventor, the maker of the
world’s food & clothes.
I am the audience that witnesses history. The Napoleons
come from me & the Lincolns. They die. &
then I send forth more Napoleons & Lincolns.
I am the seed ground. I am a prairie that will stand
for much plowing. Terrible storms pass over me.
I forget. The best of me is sucked out & wasted.
I forget. Everything but Death comes to me &
makes me work & give up what I have. & I forget.
Sometimes I growl, shake myself & spatter a few red
drops for history to remember. Then — I forget.
When I, the people, learn to remember, when I, the People
use the lessons of yesterday & no longer forget
who robbed me last year, who played me for
a fool — then there will be no speaker in all the world
say the name: “The People”, with any fleck of a
sneer in his voice or any far off smile of derision.
The mob — The crowd — The mass — will arrive then.

— Carl Sandburg

The Return

I’m coming back
for my wings.

O let me come back!

I want to die where
it’s dawn!

I want to die where
it’s yesterday!

I’m coming back
for my wings.

O let me get back!

I want  to die where
it’s origin.

I want to die 
out of sight
of the sea.

— Federico Garcia Lorca

Raven In A Winter Wonderland — Image by kenne


Create the picture you wish to show
Relieve my mind before I blow.
Use my hand,
I’ll take the chance,
I trust you with my mind and limb
Sing to me your silent hymn
Sedate me with your loving trance,
Trace your world upon this pale land.
