The Dragon-fly

Today I saw the dragon-fly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.

— Alfred Lord Tennyson

“It was many and many a year ago, 
         In a kingdom by the sea, 
   That a maiden there lived whom you may know 
         By the name of ANNABEL LEE; 
   And this maiden she lived with no other thought 
         Than to love and be loved by me.”

— from the poem, Annabel Lee, by Edgar Allen Poe

“And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long and far-reaching,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of inch by inch,
on the inside,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground underneath our own feet,
where we learn to be fully at home.”

  — Wendell Berry

Those who follow my blog may not believe this, but I do work at improving my grammar and spelling — like I even get daily email’s from Daily Writing Tips. Still, at this elderly age, I remain what educators refer to as a “low potential, high achiever” student. My goal is to learn something new each day — a continuous process of improving.

When I was much younger I would become embarrassed when the Grammar Nazis would correct me. But, in time I learned that there is a positive side of embarrassment — now I urge corrective feedback.

Mistakes open the door to creativity,  just don’t let your pride get in the way.

Connecting then to now, moment to moment . . .   3 comments

Welcome!

This is my new blog.
I’m interested in sharing ideas,
progressive thought, photos, poems
and answers to how we can make
this planet a better place for all.

In June of 2008, I began blogging on WordPress. At that time, I was not new to blogging,
since I had done so on Yahoo 360. One of my first WordPress entries was to revisit
my first Yahoo 360 entry in 2005.

Connecting then to now, moment to moment . . .

I can still see him now,
walking the land
at the end of our day.
His long shadow
stretching across the land
saluting the setting sun.
Listening to the breeze
slowly moving the pines
in concert with the sunset.

Surveying his domain
in a moment of thanks.
Collecting the feelings
inspired by nature’s
changing of the guard.
Continuing life’s connection
to all things now
and all things to come.

Even as before, I watch
him through youthful eyes.
Now knowing his thoughts,
formed by years of experience
and a Devine connection
to the rhythm of the ages,
the language of the universe.

Not just another sunset,
but a passing of the baton.
Connecting the day with the night,
yesterday with tomorrow,
creating moments of recollection
of life’s passages from now to forever,
insuring our never-ending existence.

kenneturner.com — This One Is On Me!   Leave a comment

“This One Is On Me!” Image by Joy

I’ve had the domain, kenneturner.com for several years now. The domain name was the URL for my photography website. Since establishing the website I now have a Flickr account and have become an active blogger. Each provide formats for my photos, so I’m now using kenneturner.com as the primary URL for this blog, “Becoming Is Superior To Being.” The old URL, kenneturner.wordpress.com will still direct you to my blog.
