All that we don’t know is astonishing.
Even more astonishing is what passes for knowing.

Empty Pot, Empty Bottle — And In Conclusion   Leave a comment

“Empty Pot, Empty Bottle” — Dos XX Amber Still Life by kenne

A Word About Transitions

Moreover is not a good way to start a poem             
though many begin somewhere in the middle.

Secondly does not belong
at the opening of your second stanza.                        

Furthermore is to be avoided
no matter how long the poem.

Aforementioned is rarely found                                     
in poems at all, and for good reason.                          

Most steer clear of notwithstanding,
and the same goes for

nevertheless, however,
as a consequence, in any event

and as we have seen in the previous chapters.         

The appearance of finally                                                    
in your final stanza will be of no help.                         

All of which suggests (another no-no)
that poems don’t need to tell us where we are

or what is soon to come.                                                   
For example, the white bowl of lemons                      

on a table by a window
can go anywhere all by itself

and, in conclusion, so can
seven elephants standing in the rain.

 Nōtan (濃淡)

winter’s sun
casts long shadows
on the shortest day
creating contrasting
values of shape
between objects
and the wall

in turn capturing
my eye
as darkness wins

— kenne

(Nōtan (濃淡) is a Japanese word, meaning dark-light, there is no English language equivalent.
It embodies an ancient Eastern concept, in which all things exist as inseparable and in perfect harmony.)

Wall Shadows

A break with the sun
Not complete, only partial
A heat compromise.

A Shadow Companion   Leave a comment

Wasson Peak 01-30-12A Shadow Companion — Computer Painting by kenne

Shadow on the wall
a mark soon to fade,
with the setting sun.

Still-life in the darkness
the magic of light gone,
it’s shadow companion.

Captured and marked
by pixeled contrast,
with a digital palette.

just things

 just things
on the table

 nothing special
in the sunlight – 

a plant
a candle
a vase
a bookmark
glass art

 each having a
story to tell 

making just things
something special 

creating a way of feeling
out of the ordinary 

an instant out of time
holding it still

in the shadows
of yesterday’s dreams

zero and one shape the world   Leave a comment

zero and one shape the world

zero and one

zero in nothing
one is something

zero is nothingness
it isn’t there
one is being

zero gives meaning
imposing subjectivity
one gives consciousness
imposing objectivity

zero cannot be one
only know one
one cannot be zero
only know zero

zero and one together
shape the imagination
zero and one together
shape the world
