I Met This Charming Moonbeam Last Night

The arms of the willow started to sway
and this curious glow rippled my way.
While flirting with my feet,
nature played a song so sweet.
The lake our dance floor 'til the sun's first ray.

-Divorce Club-

~~ Divorce  Club~~

Haiku   * divorce trip *
broken promises
eclipse of the sun and moon
dreams that fall like leafs.

Limerick  * never settle*
Like a  gun to my head of course
I married the end of a horse
love was never real,
kids no big deal.
Wow! I gain more money after divorce!

Couplet   * forever vows *
I meant them words "for better or worse" during our holy matrimony
The better now has hit me, once  the Court ordered alimony:-)

Run, jump, scream, don't fall and leap!

Afternoon Afterthought

                                  Upon the roof, outside the walls,

                              now tapping soft its whispered calls,

                                              aftertaste of pain,

                                             this afternoon rain,

                                  like a  fading afterthought, falls.

Gloom in Bloom

                              Yellow petals shroud the glens in buttery bloom,

                                 concealing from the sun a shadowed gloom;

                                                             hapless furs,

                             beneath the bush feasts the fanged coil of doom!

Fishing Limerick

This fisherman, we’ll just call Mike
Was fishing for Great Northern Pike
He would throw in his line
But time after time
It came back with nothing he’d like

When I was a wee little lad
I went out fishing with dad
I caught a big trout
And was dancing about
When he threw him back in I got mad

I said Dad why did you let him go
I could take him to school don't you know
Now I just can't conceive
That my friends will believe
If I haven't got something to show

Fury of the Wind (Limerick)

The face of the ocean seemed to smile
All was calm and quiet for a while
‘Till Wind’s temper was lost
With waves forcefully tossed
In her wrathful cantankerous style

*For Carolyn Devonshire's Sea Tale Limericks contest
This is the only Limerick I have ever it was a bit of
a challenge.

Barefoot on the Beach

The days of Summer are here
On this beautiful earth sphere
This season of shine
The beach we do pine
Our time to appear draws near

The day we have awaited has arrived
To the seaside we carefully drive
The kids and their daddy
Singing Showaddywaddy
The excitement in us now thrives

In adventure they play on the dunes
Through the reeds the breeze plays a tune
A symphony so grand
As I'm barefoot on the sands
On this glorious sunny afternoon

For these days of Summer cheer us all
As the sounds of happy kids en-thrall
Our day is now ended
As darkness has descended
My kids and I had a ball

Cheaper To Keep Her (Divorce Club)

(Haiku)- * Motive, infidelity messing with the Queen Bee's Honey*

Queen Bee sits on throne,
Bumble and drone bees as one
Sample flowers dew


(Limerick) - *Admission of guilt leads to compensation*

Indeed this is how the story unfolds,
Pete said, "It's a poor rat with only one hole"...
Love had taught a sad lesson;
Divorce court was now in session,
Judge rules favor, Pete's pockets full of holes...


(Couplet) - *Take vows seriously payback often belongs to Spouse - Queen Bee*

Love said, "Pete too late you've opened your peepers"....
"Man, you should know it was cheaper to please her"!

Submitted for P.D.'s Divorce Club Contest (Haiku-Limerick-Couplet)

There's No Place Like Home

Once was a gal who felt so alone
Tornato came up rooted farms home
Landed on wicked  witch
Munchkins came out of ditch
Gave dog lollypops instead of bone

Mother nature's son

The world is a factory farm
And no one can save nature's charm
The harm from this binge
Makes ecologists cringe
And stinks like a raw underarm

Author's note: Let the games begin and hold your nose.  The scale of exploitation is unparalleled in human history.  But don't worry because more industry and technology will save us.

Take Care Of Yourself

<                                 Once there were two monkeys in a tree

                                   A hunting they did go

Super Grouper, Sardine Party Pooper

Scuba diving, oh! what a dream
In the Gulf, amidst the Sardines
With a Florida blond
Whom I've grown to be fond
It's dark, is it all that it seems

Our dive is going oh! so super
Boo! said the nosey big Grouper
Och! do you have to be mean
To these little Sardines
Your just a big party pooper

Told of he goes in a mood
Just like a big bully should
Hey! next time take better care
To these Sardines you did scare
It's impolite, and you've been oh! so rude

Now this is real pressure

Doctors spread this message about
Drink gallons of water they tout
To soften this dose

Have you ever ridden in a balloon on the air?

Oh, how I remember the quiet there.

As on the currents of wind we were borne

Watching the sun rise, as from the horizon it was torn.

Riding on nature's majesty...with nary a care.

Passing o'er the desert with all its splendor

Riding the gondola, the true "Air Bender".

Seeing the hills alight with the morning sun

Carefree, quiet, having such fun.

Memories of when our hearts were young and tender.

Goat Cheese Boat

There once was a man,
Who carved him a boat.
It was out of the cheese,
That he milked from his goat.
The first one he failed,
So he made him a note.
Never use Swiss,
Because it won’t float!

A Pill Fits the Bill

Mama eagle’s dear chickies were ill,
so she told them to lie very still.
“You just wait here for me,”
she said most tenderly.
Then she flew off to get them a pill.

Baby eagles, like most kids, detest,
taking pills. Mom returned to the nest
with dead mice in her bill
which concealed the crushed pill
Doctor Stork had prescribed with good rest!

In A Land Far Away Is A Tree

In which there lives a small bee,
His continuous buzz,

It seems like a good job to me.

Your Time is not My Time

A gift during the time of the great V.O.C.
A symbol of stature it was meant to be
     Made in the Netherlands
     To replace hourglass sands
But the gnomon was not made for SA, see?!

The Old Sundial, gracing one of the entrants to The Gardens, Cape Town, was made to order (and at great expense) by a company in the Netherlands, on the request by one of Cape Town’s erstwhile governors. After it was assembled in The Gardens, someone noticed that the gnomon was facing the wrong way, IE  It could not be used in the southern hemisphere! Same as moss grows on the north side of pines in the northern hemisphere, it grows on the south side in the southern hemisphere - due to the position of the sun ;-) 

Please see the about section for further details regarding the references made in this Limerick.

The Owl and the Coyote

A lonesome coyote howled deep in the wood
And a most unwise owl somehow misunderstood
Oh, alas and alack!
She rashly hooted back
(And she hooted as hard as she possibly could)

"Who the heck heeds my howl, for god's merciful sake?
Could this perhaps be my potential life mate?"
..."Give a hoot who you hoot at
if you don't know just who 'dat
You hoot at!" screeched the owl a wee bit too late

The gossip that followed defied explanation!
Squirrels scolded scathing and righteous damnation
The eagle screamed from his peak
"Don't even show us your beak!"
(An owl with a tarred and feathered reputation)

The coyote's good name turned muddy and mucky
Rumor spread like the plague so he never got lucky
"Your character is fowl"
Hitting up on an owl?"
(Last I heard he migrated to Kentucky)

Rock - Paper - Scissors


Paper Snowflake

An Indian man was laughed at
for his long beard and big hat,
but much truth came out

Details | Limerick | |


What is truth's pure golden nugget?
A debt-free real balanced budget!
The concept is known
But history has shown
Great figures know how to fudge it

Author's note:  The right wing wants to pilfer nature's bounty and destroy the natural balance to make us rich because god says it's OK.  The left wing wants to do the same--only more slowly and without god.  In the end, capitalistic greed is the real evil because it is taking us to a critical point of no return.  We really need to stop using smoke and mirrors and do an honest accounting.

I Am So Bored With Rain

I'm so listless with the rain
for the dreams I cannot attain
trapped within this dwelling
a story not worth telling
a notion that perhaps "I'm insane"

puddle upon puddle does flood
as the hill side turns to mud 
this wound trapped within
a song of doom once again
for now a dreary river of blood

behind the window I gaze
at muted sight in a haze
will inspiration arrive
in sunbeams that contrive
or will my life drown in a maze 

"I Am Bored With____"

Not the material guy

Not the material guy

I’m not the material guy
Ambitions were never for I
I’m always the one
That gets noting done
I’m a dreamer, I cannot deny.

My mind it is not very clever
My heart is as light as a feather
My manner is free
Like a bird in a tree
And I never will worry, not ever

Just like a river I’ll flow
And always my heart it will glow
I won’t push the river
So life does deliver
A feeling that each day does grow

Until the day that I die
I won’t let a day pass me by
Without looking at me
At within, what I be
As always I’ll ask ‘Who am I?’

I hear your song, 
I feel your beat, 
Ngiyakuthanda Africa 
And you take me home… 

Your wide open spaces, 
Tseno metala legodimo, 
Your rivers run strong 
Your mountains stand proud. 

I hear your song 
I feel your beat 
Ngiyakuthanda Africa 
And you take me home… 

The sun shines brightly on your copper field, 
Your endless horizons set me free… 
Your winds guide me to where the rain falls down 
On the earth where you grow wild and unruly 

I hear your song 
I feel your beat 
Ngiyakuthanda Africa 
And you take me home… 

In jou het ek n tuiste... Africa

Pity the Poor Katydid

Somehow you flew in and hid
Right under my toilet lid
Ouite sure you were dead
'Little pest!' I said
Pity the poor Katydid!

Saw a leg twitch, God forbid
Guess what I done-gone-and-did?
'Okay, my green lass
Go die in the grass'
Pity the poor Katydid!

Inner City

The bright, tall, dusk buildings glow gold
jacket pockets protecting from cold.
The tribal people dance
strange performers chance
and drums and chimes rhythmically bold.

A world of divine mystery waits
to those capable of altered states.
A state sleepily deep
for distracting thoughts sheep
making thy under tempted by debates.

Two eyes cannot see this grand place
for three are required to embrace.
The Soul breathes this air
a clear body thou wear
so as to walk with honest grace.

A world lacking an accurate clock
for emotions fly away in flock.
The flock a coward
neutrality powered
a coat of chalk being a wise block.

Want ill advised, for drawbacks hunt
if the pendulum starts, it be shunt.
Man becomes dependent
attached to a pendant
leaving the par, taking the brunt.

This sway between east, west, with no rest
no rest for the grip on desire, vest.
The farther in sway
will increase weigh
harshly punishing if want not blessed.

So sit, take rest, take sanctuary
in the breath of calm sanitary.
Untie strings to unnerve
and will to observe
human nature that's planetary.

Complaints Transpired

He complained, complained, complained
All he ever did was complain
Then suddenly he got fired
What next then transpired
Was he wished, he could complain again

(Limerick...Sort of...We have all heard that person who complains about their job instead 
of being grateful that they have a paying job that puts food on the table...So the thought 
came to me about this one.)

Palm Tree Delight

P   A   L   M      T    R     E      E      D   E   L   I   G   H   T
Written by Catherine Reinke

In your arms, I lay behold ,
gentle winds and sea salt kiss.
Shade full arms from hot sun bold 
coco milk sweet, lovers dish.

My naked skin, sun loves to play
lying under this palm tree day.

Listen  to your  arms wind sound.
No gentler tender song I’ve found.

Tension, grief, sorrow and more,
all left behind seaside’s door.

For here life’s origins, beget and made
ancient past lives, memories to fade.

But here in Tulum, my friendship sea
I find myself, in gentle palm tree.

And so from youth my memory serves
a poem that retold again deserves.

“that only God can make a tree and
…poems are written by fools like me”

Truly then and true today
That Godly art create tree play.

For made he did a vast array
charming comfort of trees I say.
Strong steadfast oaks.
Wispy willows.
Lilac purples for ones pillow.
Cedar pillars ancient.
Rain forest lush,
only the palm tree 
makes me bush.

Round coco breasts filled with milk.
Erect pillar penetrating fronds of silk.

So, in your arms I want to be
naked, contentment, happy and free.
And so end my tree poetic attempt
of my love affair palm tree spent.

In Natures Orchard

I walked through the orchard one day
In marvel at natures display
Her harvest so rich
It thrills me to bits
And the aroma of the fruits bouquet

Then over yonder a noise caught my ear
Intrigued I just had to draw near
What my eyes duly see
As I view unto thee
Leaves me in total endear

Her auburn locks against porcelain skin
Excites this Highlander from within
She's firm fit and ripe
The most beautiful of sight
She eyes me with a sinful grin

Gestures she now starts to show
In touch her pert body now grows
Teasing me she now allures
My hands now in grand tour
In the orchard, more than apples now glow

two little men from winney can do

Two little men from winney- can- do, went out for a day trip to the zoo. They packed a big 
lunch, and filled up the car, for the trip to the zoo was really quite far.
When they arrived, and had a look round, they were astonished at what they had found. 
There were lions and tigers, monkeys and giraffe. The two men were having a really good 
But when they reached the reptile house, they had to be quiet as a mouse. For the biggest 
croc that lived in the park, had broken out in the dark. They knew he was in there, but didn’t 
know where; the two men were really and truly quite scared.
Then all of a sudden one of them sneezed, and fell over backwards into a big tree.
A rustle of branches and then a big scream, this can’t be happening, this must be a dream.
The man called out to his friend all concerned, then heard a big growl and slowly turned. 
There in front of him sat on a rock, was a giant and rather angry big croc.
The man froze with fear and just couldn’t run, and with one snap ended up in the big crocs 
So if you ever go to winney-can-do, please don’t ever visit the zoo.

The Little Auk

These birds of the Auk are so cute
With their colourful beaks and their looks
So gorgeous are they
I could stare every day
Their name Puffin, is now linked to books

No Farting Allowed

I smelt an old man in a hut,
He suffered from gas in his gut,
And he wiggled and grinned
As he let out his wind,
And laughed at the sound of his butt.

The Birds and the Bees

Anyone from LA to New York
knows babies are not brought by the stork.
It takes nine months gestation
for a new generation.
Didn’t you learn that in school you dork?

Garbage Dump//For Limerick Game

In many and many ages hence
Standing on a hill that makes no sense
Archaeologist dig way down
Found way beneath a Royal Crown
Bad odor becoming intense

(This for Limerick Game or whatever passed from C.E.McMillen.  I pass the Limerick torch to 
Doris Culverhouse lovely daughter).

Punxsutawney Phil

 Punxsutawney Phil  thought he  could  sing
 So they dubbed him Elvis the king
 But when he heard all the boos
 He got the winter blues
 And wasn't  seen again until spring!

Lonely Night

The night was lonely for a friend
But no one was up around then
That was until three
He let out a weep
And the stars came to comfort him.

Rain, Rain Go Away

This year has been lacking in summer sun.
No kids romping on beaches having fun.
Its done nothing but rain,
This weather's a big pain.
Our transition to rain forest's begun.

I Fell In Love

I fell in love; my heart goes thump, thump.
You, dear one, a beautiful tree stump.
Creases that shine so clear.
Your presence, calls me near.
Say you love me, while I have this bump.

My heart craves in desire, for your rings.
Fire burns inside, as the minstrel sings.
Your caress sometimes rough,
I am your man; I am tough.
Say you will be mine, please, my lust springs.

My darling, thus true, you are my stump.
Adore resting on you, on my rump.
I ache for answer, soon.
Before the budding moon,
My sweet love, do not make me a chump.

February Snow

The snowdrops pop their heads out of the ground

The earth has thawed so they'll just look around

Just when they think its safe

Snow gets dumped on their face

As winter sneaks back in without a sound

The Storm

When the storm hit our town of Old Soling
It brought with it thunder a rolling.
My son said don’t fear,
As the angels are near
Because once again God must be bowling

I once had a big fury bunny,
He was sweet and yes, he was funny.
He would hop all day,
and then I would say,
Let’s go to the park where it's sunny.

Ever seen falcons and honey bees?
Falcons eat pigeons hiding in trees,
hunting them until they're full.
Honey bees work hard 'till Fall...
before any beehive freezes.

The Birds and the Bees

I think that the birds and the bees are bad
A bird would avoid the bee just a tad
For a bee would really sting
And hurt that flying thing
Avoiding the bee is it’s best iron-clad

On a cold grey day, sky dismayed, it snows
Falling frightfully fast it quickly goes
Gathers in many spots
Covers the ground alot
An inconvenience to critters below

Spring Hunting

In springtime the rabbits in our canyon
Produce with prolific abandon
Our dogs take up chase
To hunt down post haste
But never can catch up or bag one.

Nature's Debit-Credit

                 dry, crisp leaf falls, gets blown far away,

        fresh, green shoot sprouts, brightens up the day,

                                          lose some,

                                           add some,

                    all accounted for, that's Nature's way !

Sky blue and baby's breath breeze
It's my time to do as I please
Pull my head from the sand
With pen in my hand
And lines from the grass on my knees

With hedges and fences to hide
My garden, it fills me with pride
Inspires me to write
even by moonlight
I still dont want to go inside

For I have no eye on the time
And a mental 'Do not Disturb' sign
With Rhymes and Haiku's
I've nothing to lose
The long day ahead is all mine

The Lost Poet

There once was a poet named Sue
Who wanted to write a haiku.
But her Nature was such
She didn't know much,
And was lost as to just what to do.

What's Up In The Meadow?

Out in the meadow
sat a wee elf,
under a toad stool,
shading himself.

From close beside him,
ran one little mouse.
To ward off the danger,
he ran for his house.

Up in the sky,
flew a nasty old hawk,
looking for dinner,
behind an old rock,

"Run,Run," cried his Mammee,
as loud as she could,
and she woke the wee elf,
but she knew that she should.

With a fast little flurry,
and a pull him up tight,
the mouse and the elf.
hide in the toad stool's dim light.

So thanks to a toad stool,
two lives were but saved,
 As the nasty old hawk flew off.
His wings seemed to have waved.

I'll get them tomorrow,
thought the hawk to himself,
while away ran his supper,
that little old mouse and the wee little elf,

Carefree Walks

              city folks say they gotta run, gotta go,

        slaves of the bundy clock, no time to know,

                                      easy place,

                                     slower pace,

       country life, forest walks, carefree winds blow !

Indefinitely Final

                   The setting sun casts a magic that's more than visual,

                        something in its radiance seems indefinitely final;

                                                         it's goodbye,

                                                           it's oh, hi!

Need and Greed

                        If we take from Nature more than what we need,

                                   if its mute agonizing we fail to heed,

                                                           abuse it,

                                                         we'll lose it,

                       soon we'll have to pay with our lives for our greed!

Stinking Snake

A man tossed a snake in a lake
to the bottom I thank, that It sank 
and it sit there awhile 
with a big fang smile

Freddy The Fly Wonders Why

Good ol' Freddy, always ready,
Though he don't know why,
He should even try,

One day Freddy decided
it was time for a change,
So he went to an entomologist,
to see if he could arrange,
To be turned into a mosquito,
Now isn't that strange?

He thought if his word had
more of a bite,
He would start feeling all right,

But the Doctor said no,
As a fly you must go,
Now please get out of my sight!!

View From a Villa

           yonder is a flaming red, vintage corolla

         basking in the sun in the yard of this villa,

                            casting no shadow,

                           while by the window,

     dances a burning bush, blazing bougainvillea !

Spring Fling

Spring Fling

In the midst of the instinct to mate
she went sniffing around for a date
and once on the scent
all her energy spent
succumbed to spring’s arduous fate
