“To know the way, 
we go the way, 
we do the way.
The way we do,
the things we do,
it’s all there in front of you.
But if you try too hard to see it,
you’ll only become confused.
I am me and you are you.
As you can see; 
but when you do 
the things that you can do, 
you will find the way.
The way will follow you.” 
― Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh

Santa Catalina Mountains — Photo-Artistry   Leave a comment

Clouds over the Catalinas (1 of 1)-Edit-art blogSanta Catalina Mountains — Photo-Artistry by kenne

TO THE TUNE ‘A FLOATING CLOUD CROSSES
ENCHANTED MOUNTAIN’

Every morning I get up
Beautiful as the Goddess
Of love ib Enchanted Mountain.
Every night I go to bed
seductive as Yang Kuei-fei,
The imperial concubine.
My slender waist and thighs
Are exhausted and weak
From a night of cloud dancing.
But my eyes are still lewd,
And my cheeks are flushed.
My old wet nurse combs
My cloud-like hair.
My lover, fragrant as incense,
Adjusts my jade hairpins, and
Draws on my silk stockings
Over my feet and legs
Perfumed with orchids;
And once again we fall over
Overwhelmed with passion.

— Huang Ho

Queen Butterfly (1 of 1)-2-Edit-2 blogButterfly Photo-Artistry by kenne

It is August,
butterflies are
in flight
moving quickly
from flower
to flower
abandoning each
with no expression
of love — a one
moment stand
if lucky, or
just a flyover.

Moon Man — Photo-Artistry by kenne

(This poem was originally posted a several years ago.)

. . . guilty.

Embracing reason
Sharing time
Finding reality
Existing in space
For these things I am . . .

Loving the underdog
Catching the moment
Believing others’ lies
Crying alone
For these things I am . . .

Watching sunsets
Experiencing truth
Awakening before dawn
Catching the light
For these things I am . . .

Taking things apart
Looking for curves
Believing in art
Believing in you
For these things I am . . .

Caring about life
Climbing trees
Walking in pastures
Keeping stray dogs
For these things I am . . .

Believing in Hobbits
Flying the redeye
Losing my head
Expressing anger
For these things I am . . .

Sharing expectations
Learning from asking
Solving problems
Admiring thought
For these things I am . . .

Talking to plants
Understanding cats
Swimming nude
Experiencing love
For these things I am . . .

Improvising life
Rejecting suppression
Questioning rules
Asking, “Why?”
For these things I am . . .

Making mistakes
Forgiving myself
Taking offense
Forgiving others
For these things I am . . .

Listening in silence
Always learning
Making things happen
Giving respect
For these things I am . . .

Being timid
Becoming self-assured
Being assertive
Being misunderstood
For these things I am . . .

Feeling the Blues
Embracing imagination
Overcoming mediocrity
Expressing gratitude
For these things I am . . .

Loving poetry
Reading poetry
Quoting poetry
Writing poetry
For these things I am . . .

Assessing existence
Separating the noise
Being in love
Going crazy
For these things I am . . . guilty

Memory of sunlight warming
a grove of  orange trees,
scent of blossoms mixed
with dusty air, sweet juice
pooling on the tongue.

SCVN Nature Walk 08-08-12Two-Tailed Swallowtail Photo-Artistry by kenne

I love you, I love you, I love you,
with the armchair and the book of death,
down the melancholy highway
in the iris’s darkened garret,
in our bed that was once the moon’s bed,
and in that dance, the turtle dreamed of.

— Federico García Lorca

Without stones, there is no arch —
A symbol of strength.
