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.

Neutral Touches Interwoven   Leave a comment

Sabino Canyon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

I am a lone raven high
above the canyon wall
circling up, then down
as hikers make their way
on the old mule trail up
to a series of switch-backs
opening into a meadow
where many options prevail
going east, going west
before turning back north
to the mountain called Lemmon.

I am a lone raven blessed
to fly above other mortals
circling up, then down
but still, I work hard to fly
seeing images of life below
inspiration of an alien being
a curious extrovert, I call out
taken as a signal by some
just a lot of noise by others
still unnoticed by others
neutral touches interwoven.

Beware   2 comments

Raven-0470-art-2-72.jpgRaven — Photo-Artistry by kenne

. . . 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 . . .

Raven — The Town Cryer   Leave a comment

Poetry is read by the lovers of poetry
and heard by some move they coax to the cafe
or the district library for a bifocal reading.
Lovers of poetry may total a million people
on the whole planet. Fewer than the players of skat.

Mountain Cabin   3 comments

Rose Lake July 2013Mountain Cabin — Digital Painting by kenne

A red cabin stands
At the far end of the trail
Below Mt. Lemmon —
A big black dog
With his chain stretched,
Barking.

A smell of coffee,
She calls the dog
Back to the porch
As a nearby raven
Seems to echo her,
Calling.

Raven In The Snow   1 comment

december-snow-2011-raven-1-of-1-art-blogRaven In the Snow — Computer Painting by kenne

A wet snow fell on the mountains
clinging to the pine needles
on a silent, dark night.

By dawn, the clouds were gone
leaving behind  an icing
in the high country

where the sun awakens
a picture perfect landscape
and the ravens announce,

. . . “Good Morning America.”

raven on high

landing

on an agave flower 

casting

a death shadow 

linking

the demon

talking 

to the wind 

waiting

for wind currents

lifting off

free to sore high

performing skilled 

aerobatic maneuvers 

combining 

loops and rolls

seeking intensity

not for show, just for fun

 “Hey,” said Shadow.
“Huginn or Muninn, or whoever you are.”
The bird turned, head tipped,
suspiciously, on one side,
and it stared at him with bright eyes.
“Say ‘Nevermore,'” said Shadow.
“Fuck you,” said the raven.”

The Raven Calls — Grunge Composition by kenne

let me tell you

hell is built
piece by piece
brick by brick
around
you.
it’s a gradual,
not a rapid
process.

we build our
own
inferno,
blame
others.

but hell is
hell.

wordly hell is
hell.

my hell and
your
hell.

our
hell.

hell, hell,
hell.

the song of
hell.

putting your
shoes on
in the
morning,
hell.
