Cactus Digital Art — Existing in Absurdity   2 comments

Barrel Cactus-3522 art blogCactus Digital Art — by kenne

Life, art, and logic are full of absurdities of various kinds.
We conceptualize absurdities when we
discuss square circles and circular squares.
It is art that is able to provide a mediator
between the strange and the real.

“The creative act is only an incomplete and abstract moment in the production of a work.”

Our Poinsettia Six Months Out   3 comments

poinsettia-3525 blogOur Poinsettia Six Months Out (May 24, 2018) — Image by kenne

We purchased this poinsettia around Thanksgiving last year, then spent Christmas in Houston (December 21-29). Before leaving we watered all our indoor plants. When we returned on the 29th, the poinsettia looked better than ever. It continues to be the centerpiece on the dining room table.

We have never had a poinsettia last this long, now we are hoping it will be around for the 2018 Holidays.

Holidays year round
Poinsettia keeps running
More bang for the buck.

This Lizard of Many Colors   Leave a comment

Hot, dry, brown and gray
Not this colorful lizard
Posing on a rock. 

Maybe she will see
Him in his many colors
Posing on a rock. 

Watch him arch his back
Puff out his sides to look big
As he does push-ups.

Not I, not I, but the wind that blows through me!   Leave a comment

Miller Creek TrailBee Approaching Blue Dicks Blossoms — Digital Art by kenne

Not I, not I, but the wind that blows through me!
A fine wind is blowing the new direction of Time.
If only I let it bear me, carry me, if only it carry me!
If only I am sensitive, subtle, oh, delicate, a winged gift!
If only, most lovely of all, I yield myself and am borrowed
By the fine, fine wind that takes its course through the chaos of the world
Like a fine, an exquisite chisel, a wedge-blade inserted;
If only I am keen and hard like the sheer tip of a wedge
Driven by invisible blows,
The rock will split, we shall come at the wonder, we shall find the Hesperides.
— from “Song of a Man Who Has Come Through” by D. H. Lawrence

Standing as a test of time —
Juniper power.

Here we go round the prickly pear
At five o’clock in the morning.
