Just A Broken Limb

Broken by the storm
Tumbled by the wind
Pebbled by the sand
Captured by the rock

How far I have come
From what I was
Lost between was and now
Never to go home again

Resting against the rock
Disguised as a twig
Knowing all that matters
Intoxicated by the possible

Dark Matrix of Matter   Leave a comment

EPSON MFP imageGlass Cactus Blossom – Computer Art by kenne

Last night I tossed in my sleep

something in a dream

was unreal, artificial, 

everything made of glass —

no hammers allowed

swinging in the dark

matrix of matter

not directly observed

just it’s gravitational effects.

Joy and Kenne in Bisbee, Arizona — Computer art by kenne

On a porch one afternoon
at the Copper Queen Hotel
after a discussion with the
ghosts from the days when
copper was king in Bisbee.

I took a selfie of Joy and me,
not the best photo, but good
enough to use Photoshop
filters and brushes to give it
a classic Hopperesque feel.

Of course, you may not think so.
He was a realist known to fix a
particular moment full of human 
qualities and frailties, often with
a degree of self-absorption.

Expectations

Who are you
you who share
my very existence
with your expectations
sometimes calling them traditions
placing more value
on the worth of your expectations.
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of my very being.

Who am I
I who share
your very existence
with my expectations
sometimes calling them logical
placing more value
on the worth of my expectations
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of your very being.

Who are we
we who share
their very existence
with our expectations
sometimes calling them unconditional
placing more value
on the worth of our expectations
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of their very being.

Who are they
they who share
our very existence
with their expectations
sometimes calling them laws
placing more value
on the worth of their expectations
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of our very being.

Who are we
we who share
a universal existence
with our expectations
sometimes calling them just
placing more value
on the worth of all expectations
unwilling to understand
neither the what
nor the why
of a universal being.

Esperero trail to the Ridge“Things of Poetry” — Computer Art by kenne

Things of Poetry

Poppies

line the canyon trail,

brightening

each hiker’s way.

Passing greetings

share the joy

as the morning sun

intensifies

the canyon colors

brilliantly reflected

by each poppy,

the things

of O’Keeffe —

real poetry.

The only wisdom we can hope to acquire

Cam Boh Trails 01-21-13Sonoran Desert Scene — Panorama by kenne

The desert trail is dry
not comprehending
the absence of water.

What can a poem
for the desert say
not captured in an image?

As I hike the trails
will my words capture
what you cannot see?

Will you become aware
as a coyote scenting a rabbit
reworking your perspective? 

Yet, I find myself questioning
why put into words that 

kindled without flame.
