To live is so startling
it leaves little time
for anything else.

Vancouver Skyline (1 of 1)-2 Mixed Media blogCityscape — Mixed Media — Image by kenne

I am drifting as I listen to Purple Haze,
buildings reflect up from the water below.

Remember when we first saw the cityscape,
dreamy cosmic waves of mid-summer light?

Close your eyes, you will still see your body
drifting across the sky as the clouds move

through a matrix of lines and rainbow colors.
The edges of the skyline begin to drop as

the cityscape embraces and slowly enters
the maze of puzzles in the northern sky.

A Picture of Shared Inspiration   2 comments

English Bay Park — Image by kenne

Tankers in the bay
waiting their turn.

Joggers running by
the rocky shoreline.

Conversations fill the air
forming a white noise curtain.

The warm rays of the sun
poised with the cool breeze.

Mountains in the distance
creating the bay’s mouth.

Shadows  growing longer
stretching over the ground.

Setting on the bench
casting a muse in the park.

The silence of solitude
interacting with the environment.

Creating a mood
of shared inspiration.

Embracing the Extremities of the Sacred and Profane   Leave a comment

Seattle Lummi Island & Vancouver_Stacked Rocks_0150 blogEmbracing the Extremities of the Sacred and Profane

Sculpture Woods-Dance of LifeLike most journeys, our trip to Seattle, Lummi Island and Vancouver was a source of much inspiration, both sacred and profane. If art is something that can be admired in its own right, then all human creations are works of art.  Both the artist and the observer share the inspiration, a duende resulting in a collaborative incarnate experience.
