Following the Dinosaur Trail

babysitting Ricky
he shows me books on T-Rex. . .
ancient history

years later. . . watching
Jurassic Park on TV. . . 
my two kids and I

games played on a screen
my grandson plays the hunter. . . 
I’m the dinosaur

For SKAT's Dinosaurs Haiku Contest

Wish you were here

Canopy of trees
trying to cross sky limit....
green revolution

a distant river
lying naked lazily....
an enticing call

the old learned stones
whispering me history ....
wish you were here now

~~The Enemy~~
deep like the abyss
hating has drowned deep inside
pumping to get out

moment in the past
life will never be the same
future history

~~Feet Lust~~
please tickle my toes
caressing feel, in between
sweep me off the ground

~~Love Flows~~
love comes in circles
put them words right in my mouth
sweet like the river

~~Earth Core~~
deeper than a thought
waiting silent under ground
volcano loop hole

~~Silent Grave Yard~~
moon beam upon name
resting forever in peace
tears soon forgotten

darkness turning white
no where to run from now on
I belong to you

nature and it's will
boundaries between all battles
like a dead flower

~~Sweat or Honey~~
hot steamy liquid
yellow like a sun flower
flowing to release

~~Peaks Out~~
brown mountain rock soul
smells nothing like natures dew
wipe off till it's gone

Adirondacks Ode

Climb high these mountains
And meet cliffs of history
Snug against the moon

Cold lover's warm kiss
Caress each syllable of song
Love makes joy exist
Adirondacks mist
The milk of mothering trees 
Melted on morning's joy

Tongue lark the dark lakes
Water births of memory
Ego ice thin here 

The nation's blood lens
The red moon night, so pride stakes
Claim to fluid truth
The wind prowls the skin
Stirring leaves of memories
A breast dried of peace  

Algonquian trail
Footsteps eat the span of trees
Man is small in grief

The muskets torment
Fusion of mission and right
The north shrikes lament

And beg migrants gone
But wax wing they shun the sun
Bunting snow for life.

Old Mohawk glory
Gone when forest bare shivers
In castles of ice

Steel teeth scrape the rocks
And eat iron from the ore
Of greed, killing trees

Logging the green tongue
Of the sun's wealth of heat
For this new kingdom

Of civilized men
Performing barbaric feats
Distant from the den.

Dusk the Gilded Age
Of rage ... like natives, all past
Diseased to the eye

A new dawn breaks song
And howls of joy claim again
The blessings of rain

Sceptered in the throat
Cities' diamonds of dew
Love of warblers note.

Love is eagle's joy
Climbing high against the breast
Peaking in delight.

The Zebra Mussel Invasion (The Story Of The Three Hump Clam)

The Zebra Mussel Invasion (The Story Of The Three Hump Clam)

God’s opalescence-

                 Mississippi riverbed

                                    Suffocating sleep

Dedicated to Nadine and Burl, of “River City Pearls” in Alma
Wisconsin, fighting heroically to save the many species of
Mississippi river clams, bordering on extinction, from the 
Choking Zebra Mussel invasion, your effort is honorable.
For you history buffs, Nadine was a pioneer in the Chinese 
“mother of pearl”  button-trade industry over 50 yrs. ago,
(now vanished) originating from this area of the Mississippi near
 Alma called “Lake Pepin” a vast expanse of the river with
 Minnesota on one side, and Wisconsin on the other, her River
 Pearl Jewelry and Oil Paintings are internationally acclaimed.

Top of the World

polar ice cap melts
bears cling to floating glaciers...
    world’s top is shifting

north pole relocates
tropical forests are glazed...
     history repeats

*Entry for Skat’s “Top of the World” haiku contest.  Many scientists believe the North Pole is in the process of shifting and that there is no real danger from alleged “global warming.”  It’s a natural cycle that recurs about every 10,000 years.

Grape Wine Drink

Glittering Purple 
So pretty it is so sweet
Fruit of history

Glittering Purple
So pretty it is so sweet
Taste of memory

Glittering Purple
So pretty it is so sweet
Drink from grape it wines

Old woman
deep eyes , over sky
looking back history
balance sheet of life.

Once blurted without caution,
It creates history enveloped in anguish
Only leaving you will bring serenity.
