"MY BEARD HAS A BEARD" ::: © JTK.CA


 "MY BEARD HAS A BEARD" ::: © JTK.CA

It's time to shave my neck
Because my beard has a beard.
I might find me a lady
If I didn't look so weird.
I had a dream last night
That a girl found me hot,
And that's how I know
It was a dream.

I'll trade in my self-loathing
For a little self-respect.
And I'll start it off
By shaving my neck.

“X MARKS THE SPOT” by JTK.CA ::: Named for INDIANA JONES movie moments, in which first, Indy tells his students, “X never marks the spot!” followed later in the movie by his incredulous line, “X marks the spot,” when he finds something of great importance under a giant Roman numeral X marking on the floor. The lines are from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” — definitely the best Indy movie, in my book.

"CRYSTAL" ::: © JTK.CA


PLAY this song while reading my poem :-)

In my poem, "CRYSTAL," I go back to childhood memories of our crystal chandelier in our dining room in Coxheath (Sydney), Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, North America, Earth, Sol Sector, Alpha Quadrant, Milky Way, Universe. A window was perfectly situated so that the sunlight shining through our crystal chandelier would plaster our dining room walls and ceiling with rainbow splotches. I lived in Coxheath from ages 8 to 14 (from 1976 to 1982). It was a wonderful place to grow up. Unlike today, I knew many of my neighbours, and we played together in the un-busy street.

CRYSTAL
~~~~~~~

You sparkle like splashing rapids
You flash like a diamond
You are the bringer of rainbow dreams
Strewn across my walls

You give me hope for a brighter tomorrow
You mock my fears
And make me laugh at them too

You bring colour
You bring joy
You are crystal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tad's Note: I also love the NELLY FURTADO song, "CHILDHOOD DREAMS," (http://bit.ly/NellyFurtado-ChildhoodDreams in which she sings, "I'm sliding on the rainbows of my childhood dreams"! It's from her album, "FOLKLORE" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folklore_(Nelly_Furtado_album)), which, in my opinion, as an entire album, is a sonic masterpiece!

Open the map to full screen and change to satellite view. Zoom into the MAXIMUM magnification on this map, and the SUN will be sitting directly on the roof of my childhood house in Coxheath. I still visit it often in my dreams.

“WAVERLEY PARK is my PLANETARIUM” by JTK.CA ::: I often do my superzoom moon and planets photography in Guelph, Ontario’s Waverley Park, within walking distance from my place. I used my 63 times optical zoom SONY DSC-H400 digital camera for these shots. The close-up shots of JUPITER WITH 4 JOVIAN MOONS and EARTH’S MOON were shot at the full 63 times optical zoom, which will still likely be shrunken by the time it reaches you, here on social media.

“SMALL WORLDS DON’T GET SMALLER THAN THIS!” by JTK.CA

“SMALL WORLDS DON’T GET SMALLER THAN THIS!” by http://JTK.CA

My most incredible small world experience happened in my first semester at Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, Georgia, which overlooks Chattanooga, Tennessee from the mountaintop. In my dorm room, above my bed, my ceiling area was covered by a huge Canadian flag. A friend from down the hall Andy Gienapp walked into my room and saw the flag. Andy said, “Oh, you’re Canadian!” I said, “Yep!” Andy said, “I was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia.” I said, “I lived in Sydney, Nova Scotia!” He said, “My dad was a pastor there.” I said, “My dad was a pastor there!” He said, “We lived in the manse at 169 Park Street.” I exclaimed, “I lived in the manse at 169 Park Street!” Amazing to be going to college and discover that I and a friend had lived in the same house over a thousand miles away! Andy’s dad was the pastor there, I think, two pastorates before my dad. — Jonathan Tad Ketchen

“THE BUCK STOPS WITH SUSAN SMITH” by JTK.CA

“THE BUCK STOPS WITH SUSAN SMITH” by http://JTK.CA

The buck stops
With Susan Smith,
And we slay our kids
With impunity.

Strapped in her car,
Her children roll into the river,
Drowning in her “troubled life”;
They breathe nothing but water
Until they can breathe nothing.

She continues breathing,
And her truth’s deceiving.

She makes up stories
And excuses
To explain the child abuses,
And she mourns their loss
Because it’s not her fault.

She was abused,
So she abused her sons
To the point of death.
I suppose that makes her
Better than her abuser.

*

It’s easy to lay blame,
But we’re the very same.

The buck stops
With Susan Smith,
And we slay our kids
With impunity.

Strapped in our wombs,
Our children are burned in a river of salt.
We were assaulted by troubled lives,
So we assault our children
Because they’re just more trouble.
We rip them from their safety bubble.
Their little hearts stop beating.
From truth we are retreating.

We make up stories
And excuses
To explain the child abuses,
But we don’t mourn their loss
Because it’s not our fault,
And besides, our lives take precedence.

If women’s rights provide
For ending a separate life inside,
Then why not let Susan Smith
Control the destinies of those outside?

*

We kill our kids
With impunity.
The Culture hunts Smith down.
We say that she should die,
And the media gives us immunity.

“MOST OF US DISAPPEAR (Selfie And Poem)” by JTK.CA

































“MOST OF US DISAPPEAR” by http://JTK.CA

Most of us disappear,
Forgotten to the arc of history.

Instead of seeking to be remembered,
We should simply be memorable, in the here and now.
Love and be loved now.

Give love, more than seeking it,
For love is the only contagion everyone wants to receive.
If you give it, it will come back to you
But don’t look for it, because it will wait to surprise you,
In its own time, not on your schedule, and not from your pleas.

The more you seek love,
The more it will elude you.
The more you give love,
The more it will surprise you,
Because love is giving, not taking.
Anyone can take.

So don’t ask how history will remember you.
Don’t live life chasing your own legacy.
Your legacy is none of your business.
Your business is to give love now.

And, by the way,
If you think I’m judging you, I’m not.
You see, this, like many of my poems,
Is a sermon to myself.

Dad was a pastor,
And, perhaps, so am I.

“MY CONDOLENCES ON YOUR IMMINENT DEMISE” by JTK.CA

“MY CONDOLENCES ON YOUR IMMINENT DEMISE” by http://JTK.CA

I just thought of a great line for a movie villain:
“My condolences on your imminent demise.”
— Copyright © Jonathan Tad Ketchen

But seriously, death is imminent for us all:

One wrong step
On a mountain trek.

One wrong word
When silence is preferred.

One wrong stare
Into the eyes of a bear.

We all have it coming.
Life is fatal,
Our fears, prenatal.

So,
“My condolences on your imminent demise.”

Life after death
Or nothing at all?
Death still sucks.

Shucks!
