How Fast it Dries

the jaguar's tear
slides off his single whisker
clouds do sigh

three offspring
dragged into the river's teeth
one remains

they both stretch
the moment of sorrow lost
life leaps on

Songbirds loose small chirps,
Tiny enough to slip through
Momentary rain.

at sea with secrets

They don't mate, they spawn!

F :  Hot or chill,wooo;
      Strolling the green at my will-
      No chain in my neck.

D :  Round the clock,wooo;
       Bone certain,water is sure-
       All days as christmas.

F :  All hours I am high;
      Freshest is the flesh I eat-
      In my strength I live.

D :  Day and night is health;
       Dr. Vet watches with care-
       Which ailment feared I?

F :  Now and then I bounce;
      Barks, leaves, seeds’ potency-
      No human error.

What DOES the Fox Say

mouse’s new play mate
squeaks a lot, but doesn’t quack. . . 
my rubber ducky

rub a dub ba dub
five fish swimming in my tub. . . 
blub blub blub blub blub

reindeer on my roof
my puppies try to warn me. . . 
woof! woof! woof! woof! woof!

It isn’t the sound 
you need to worry about. . . 
*when elephants toot!

moo! The cows cried out
but cows can’t make the “v” sound. . . 
they crashed into me!

when birds sing tweet tweet
they need to realize that
cats are hearing “treat!”

out on my front lawn
lying silent and lifeless. . . 
*the frog that had croaked

clever little fox
whatever it is you say. . . 
I got nothing for ya!

*For my non-American friends who may not know 
The lingo, “toot” also means “to fart” and “croak” has
the slang meaning “to die.”

Per request of Scat A., my favorite sound in the song 
“What Does the Fox Say” is BLUB!!!” Just Love how
it comes out when I speak it!

The Elephant and the Albatross

She chases her tail
She listens for his breathing
She hears each his lies
She hears each his lies
His false shadow, painted skin
Listen, quiet, still
Blue feathers, hidden
Glory birds, gold and orange
Listen, quiet, still
She hears each his lies
Monkeys running through the trees
Listen, quiet, still
She chases her tail
Drying paint on native skin
 She runs through the green
Hark, the calls of birds
Drying paint on native skin
She chases her tail

Little Colt

Knobby knees unfold
   Awkward & wobbling to n fro-
      The colt tries to stand,

Gently caressed by
   His dam's soft prodding nose-
       He falls down again,

Instinct pushes him
   He must try and try again-
      Moms knicker assures,

In an effort grand
   He does it! Does it right then-
      Staggering he falls....

As the hours pass
   The colt burns across the field-
      Mother at his heels!

Reynard Tracks

parallel tracks in fresh snow - a Reynard
Male foxes are known as dogs or Reynards, females as vixens, and young as kits, pups or cubs. A group of foxes is a "skulk", "leash", "troop" or "earth". Please see the About section for the photograph which had sparked a lively discussion what animal had made these tracks. It was stated that foxes leave tracks in a single file and the double line of tracks had thrown most people off the scent.... My contribution to the discussion: "Yes, it looks as if it might be the same animal, traveling in both directions - if you look at the slant of the indentations of the two tracks..."

Crimson foxes scour the night
Like screaming banshees.

Encaged in eggshells,
Mother bird covers, sends warmth,
New life comes to world !

Life encased in shells,
Armoured subtle beings ,
Frail alluring sail !

Flashing demure smile,
Yielded with coy submission,
Come out of your shell !

Harshness of Winter


      Winter chills air;
      birds flock and feed from berries
      before the famine

      Sheep graze greedily;
      Keen eyed buzzards pick off  prey
      nature's bleak beauty 

      When winter is done;
      Birds will welcome spring and sing
      for joy each new dawn

Haiku Snippet I

Cold water lapping
Quiet barking and a quick 
Splash out near the bay

Songbird in brisk rain
Perched under a broken branch
Nest in tree hollow

Floating atop it
Our paddles swept through the lake
A budding blossom

Blushing and a chill
Moon wane and dragonfly hiss
Step on Winter cress

Red fox hunts in reeds
Swimming after a small mouse
Sky is clear and bright
