The color of spring.

Art — You will Know It When You See It   4 comments

Wildflowers (1 of 1)-2 blogDesert Wildflowers — Image by kenne

Tell me what you think art is — if you can

— ask a lot of people — and see if anybody knows . . .

You ask me about music — I like it better than anything

in the world — Color gives me the same thrill once in

a long long time — I can almost remember and count the times

— it is usually just the outdoors or the flowers — or a person —

sometimes a story — or something that will call a picture

to my mind — will affect me like music — 

— Georgia O’Keeffe

Seasons Come And Go   Leave a comment

Truth never dies.  The ages come and go.

  The mountains wear away, the stars retire.

Destruction lays earth’s mighty cities low;

   And empires, states and dynasties expire;

But caught and handed onward by the wise,

  Truth never dies.

Spring is popping out
Losing a few nuances
Creating others.

A Poem About Spring   1 comment

Desert MuseumSpring, 2018 — art by kenne

Maybe you need to write a poem about spring.

When everything blossoming is blossoming
and everything dead is dead
and everything wants to be fucked is fucked
it’s nature maintaining the way life was
and will continue to be as a bird calls
from the tree with new green leaves.

Spring on the mountains
Without rain only a few
Scattered here and there.

Suddenly It’s Spring . . . Again   3 comments

Sweetwater Trail Wasson Peak“Suddenly It’s Spring” — Image by kenne

Suddenly it’s spring
Colors of winter
Turning into yesterday’s
Dark inner soul.

Suddenly it’s spring
Winter’s fading landscape
Exploding bright colors
Nature’s paint by numbers.

Suddenly it’s spring
Renewing old dreams
My wanderlust drifting
Opened to the sky.

Suddenly it’s spring
Nature’s voices sing
Awaken longing spirits
Laced with poetry.

Suddenly it’s spring
Tamed love burns
Attracted by fire colors
A virgin again.

Suddenly it’s spring
Fresh silky skin
Milk and honey
Luring new loves.

Suddenly it’s spring . . . again.

The Fairy Duster Loves To Dance   Leave a comment

Esperero Trail Wildflowers Spring 2013Fairy Duster Wildflower and Visiting Bee — Images by kenne

The fairy duster
loves to dance
moving to the beat
of the breeze.

She attracts
dancing partners
spreading her dust
on passing bees.
