Magic Mushroom On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

Aspen Draw August 2013Magic Mushroom On Mt. Lemmon — Computer Art by kenne

I went on this magical trip… 
Out of reality, in a fantasy world, 
Everything seemed to be so peaceful and perfect! 
All harmony… no hate…

I soon realized I got to see the raw truth of reality, 
but from a different point of view, 
of contrasts and with no metaphors nor euphemisms.

Aspen Draw August 2013Wildflowers On Mt. Lemmon — Computer Painting by kenne

wildflowers
on the mountain
stories
of peaceful times
yellow
on a confess of
green
bees in flight
back and forth
freedom
under blue skies
Friday hikes
where are they going
doesn’t matter
or does it

Delicate Arch Revisited   Leave a comment

I am—yet what I am none cares or knows; 
My friends forsake me like a memory lost: 
I am the self-consumer of my woes— 
They rise and vanish in oblivious host, 
Like shadows in love’s frenzied stifled throes 
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed 
— from “I Am” by John Clare

I watch him as he ponders my presence,
only a temporary distraction from
the lizard now locked in step 
blinding into the tree bark
disposing of intricate patterns.
Soon the runner disappears 
into some unknown world,
no known direction, dissolving 
into the brink, yet native lands.

Sunset Layers untitled-0412 blogUntitled Sunset Layers by kenne

Pods and seeds unite
Underneath the circling sun
Waiting for the wind.

Flying high above
Planting seeds for tomorrow
Nature works magic.

I paint with new tools
Brushes, filters, and software
To tell my story.

Waterspouts towering up
Excitement abounds.

Charles Bukowski — The Genius of the Crowd   2 comments

The Genius Of The Crowd – Poem by Charles Bukowski

there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace

those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love

beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average
seeks average

but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own
not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
like hemlock

their finest art
