Blossoms now gone
Green leaves become read
Fall has arrived.

Wild Cotton Photo-Artistry by kenne (Sabino Canyon Oct. 1, 2012)

I have learned silence from the talkative,
toleration from the intolerant,
and kindness from the unkind;
yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.

Coupled up on the plants’ leaves
Wild cotton blossom.

Not much fiber in these guys
Enough for the name.

A Bleak Morning In West Texas   3 comments

SCVN Nature Walk #1Wild Cotton Blossom — Image by kenne

A bleak morning
draped in
brown —
Ft. Stockton
where the wind
has no patience,
I console my

chilled being
with the freshness
and warmth of
a late summer

desert blossom.

Wild Cotton Still-Life — A Place To Start   1 comment

Sabino Canyon Oct. 1, 2012Wild Cotton Still-Life by kenne

A place to start

look at you
kenne g
you have taken multi-tasking to a fault

you need to be
more focused

this is what they tell me
information is good
photo art
all are good

but, you are inexorable

demurred, I say
I do what I do
because I can

maybe you can’t,
you’re the problem
not me

all things are connected
not an isolated island
I choose to stay linked
open secret places
plant seeds
harvest thoughts
bucket ideas

but, you discard mind droppings

I mix and match
generating energy
to form inspiration

feel the heat
see the stream
it’s all shit

the shit sits
generating food
for tomorrow’s ideas
powering the music
stand up and dance
when I’m not here
there will be a place to start

but, you can add to my pile
