Kimmy Van Kooten, first and foremost is a wife and mother of 11 children.
Kimmy spends what little free time she has, "freelancing", her poetry,
short stories, pen and ink drawings,
photography and graphic design works, while incorporating God, her family life,
growing up on the farm , trials of life, nature,
romance and a little humor of course!
"I like the variety in life
seen through my eyes of
everything I write..."
From the Upper Lake in northern New Jersey,
to the lower Lehigh Valley in Allentown , PA...
to the sands of Daytona Beach and, now...
the quiet and quaint of Saint Augustine, Florida~
I have Lived!...therefore, I write!
Kimmy is th 7th child of 16, so, to find a hiding place
to collect a bit of silence in some little nook,
was and still is, her quest, yes, even with their brood! :)
Out of a realm in some auriferous sky beyond thoughts beckoning, impossibilities of my . . . Made up animations . . . animating subsistence Fluttering amid further, while furthering the distant distance
Here . . . hear how me my soul shivers, and a Spirit heir airs An enhanced accent assenting to e’er I unravel an unreal, unreeled by injection like the feel feel insertions of serried perceptions
Exposing sees . . . the one’s never quite seized I’m in another express Addressing the undressed, baring bearing’s unsown Going with the flow I’m all on my own!
For no one impression just daubs in the daub The idea of it all paints paintings on walls! With unseen colors . . . it lets me, I am! I draw . . . I gleam, I’m set, set free on the lam!
A Vorse is a Vorse, even, of course will be coarse Bristled with distinction I followed the tracks in a stupor through cracks Up aisles of isles of wiles and back!
With shoed feet in feat . . . my will spanned in knacks I hung out on a limb to nick the abstract This golden arcade that arched my existence Appeared in a wight's rite, right of the essence
Braiding braids through my heart, in ribband exacts Nee bending here where no sinner’s rove lacks In aught, I just ought, and in wrest, I am resting I wade for the wading, In sane, I’m abrading
I get caught in this seine let lucid escape . . . rising up to that ghat that rases the bane With a stoned quean of Queens, and a King that was thronged Who reigns with reins, rapping wrappings of wrongs?
Babbling brooks of my breath, tempt my unmeaning’s so quenched Thirsty at best, a swallow’s down nests . . . so Blessed! So, sow real the far-reaching and dig out deep-seats of reasoning . . . leach from cering! Wake up! . . . seams seem like their peeling!
Sing songs unstayed Your schematic Creator 's way, weighs! Representational truth lives life all aloof abducted obtusely with no context in use
Come, walk with me in a Netherworld of the untamed In an array . . . a ray, directing life force of day Defining humanness under the surface of consciousness insinuates no assailable boundaries in this world of incompetence
Stirring, stir the pot of our ingrained imaginations In an aesthetic spawning stew for improver rations Culminate now, with all your smears and yore splotches Reach for apprizing . . . a mad organism watches!

NAAAA...you're good people ;) I'm gonna have to use that someday...I'll credit it to you, of course ;) Reminds me a bit of South Park, when they cut off the head of a chicken, played a cazzoo, and whatever square it landed on, that was the policy for the economy they followed lol Just the same idea of something sounding absurdist! :P
