Autumn’s Muse

driving,
until even the gravel ends
in needled paths
immersed in worlds
boreal and arboreal
the evergreens are ever green
but the tamaracks are smokey gold
breathing comes as natural
as inspiration

the quaking aspen
unafraid
gracefully sheds its leaves
with each coaxing breeze
because to cling to life
that has already passed
would be to die
but to surrender
to the underworld of dormancy
ensures another rebirth

driving,
until even the gravel ends
a homecoming to the wilds
where there is no habitation
a fire amidst the firs
a hearth for my heart
but for the hand
that is not in mine
but I am ever green
and ever dying

So Much Loveliness

earth
From far flung cities
solitary composers
each transcribing the heavenly notes
of their transcendental hearts
their individual stanzas
woven together
within the Net of Indra
play together
like the tuning of the orchestra
a poignant violin strain here
a fanfare trumpet there
a melancholy oboe
a glissando harp
a sonorous cello
instills
a resonance
a reverberation
creates
a harmony
an arrangement
improvised and improbable
pleasing the ear
of the grand conductor
who feels no need
to raise his baton

More Than 50 Geoglyphs Discovered

More than 50 geoglyphs with various shapes and sizes, including a massive swastika, have been discovered across northern Kazakhstan in Central Asia, say archaeologists.

These sprawling structures, mostly earthen mounds, create the type of landscape art most famously seen in the Nazca region of Peru.

Discovered using Google Earth, the geoglyphs are designed in a variety of geometric shapes, including squares, rings, crosses and swastikas (the swastika is a design that was used in ancient times). Ranging from 90 to 400 meters (295 to 1,312 feet) in diameter, some of them are longer than a modern-day aircraft carrier. Researchers say that the geoglyphs are difficult to see on the ground, but can easily be seen from the sky.

Etherial “Light Warriors” of Joyce Tenneson

Mesmerizing & Transcendent … an exploration of our ethereal nature.

KARA Rasmanis

Unbelievably divine is all I can say about the works of Joyce Tenneson, how I wish I could see this show….

I remember back in my uni days being the model with pale white face and hair in tight knots wrapped in white fabric trying to do something that looked like this… ( thanks Jo it was always fun we will have to play again one day) I will have to dig out a shot to show you all…
