Beware   2 comments

. . . 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 . . .

— from The Genious of the Crowd by Charles Bukowski

Raven-Art-blog“The Town Cryer” — Photo-Artistry by kenne

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,

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

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


on an agave flower 


a death shadow 


the demon


to the wind 


for wind currents

lifting off

free to sore high

performing skilled 

aerobatic maneuvers 


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

Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”   2 comments

Image by kenne

“And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting 
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; 
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming, 
And the lamplight o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; 
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor 
Shall be lifted – nevermore!”

The above image serves as a cover to a slideshow of the photos I captured in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Given the season, having all these winter snow images reflect the white Christmas image we all have seen or carry as a mental image. Click here to see the show
