HORSE acrostic


Hell-bent stallion muscles led the mustangs through the plain,

On their heels rode hard a hired man –his job to rope the best--

Rearing high the stallion—urging speed as autumn winds dance thru his mane.

Sheets of lighting limned silhouettes as they pounded toward the west--

Enchanted now the man reined in—this day let beauty rule his breast.

Animals, large and small, reside in the tropics of South America
None, however, as vicious and strong as the Eunectes murinus
Andes in Columbia is the home of the largest and heaviest of its kind
Cautiously the hunters hunt for her precious skin for monetary gain
Occasionally though they fall prey to this lethal smooth predator
Nobody is a match for her once she wraps around you like a scarf
Denying you air, you are her latest meal swallowing you whole,
Another day and another victim, just another victory for the Anaconda.

Rodents that stealthily invade a home,
Agile and able to crawl through tight spaces.
Troublesome pests that chew holes and leave droppings,
Scurrilous scavengers with beady-eyed faces.

Zebras full of Zest and Zeal
Exquisite Stripes Dancing Happily
Black and White, Black and White
Running wildly as it turns into prey

All Animals Have Souls

All animals
Live and 

Allow them to,
Let their young
Stay safe while, learning to survive.

A patient and loving parent is
Encouraging as they learn that lesson.

Safety in numbers is paramount.
Utilizing a
Love that’s tough, parents
See their little ones grow to adulthood.

Lives in and rules the jungle
In it is strength, speed but a small waist
Only fresh flesh is its delicacy
Nature's deep, sinking into its fearsome voice.

Don't Be Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf

Do we dare decide to come to the aid of the big bad wolf? 
Once upon a time wolves thrived from the Arctic Tundra to Mexico. 
Nevertheless, this species became nearly eradicated because of man. 
‘The systematic slaughtering of animals begets grave consequences. 

By the early 1900s, wolf populations were perilously shrinking.
Extinction would surely ensue if “The Law” did not intervene. 

Although a hundred pound snarling wolf is definitely frightful, 
Fear needed to be overcome for these beautiful animals to survive. 
Rocky mountain wolf populations specifically required relief. 
At alarming rates, these intriguing creatures were disappearing. 
In 1973 Canis lupis was put on the Endangered Species List. 
Decidedly, designated recovery areas were determined. 

Obviously, habitat loss and extermination programs had over killed. 
Fortunately, Yellowstone National Park participated in recovery.

There at Yellowstone, amazing benefits to all life became apparent. 
Helping the wolves ultimately balanced co-existing animal species. 
Evidently, God knew what He was doing when he created Canis lupis. 

By reintroducing wolves, man learned; the trophic cascade improved. 
Instinctual predation surprisingly increased other wildlife populations. 
Grasslands, which had been over grazed, began regenerating. 

Banks of the river became more stable due to reforestation. 
And the ecosystem transformed, as did physical attributes of the land. 
Dams were built by beavers offering niches for small animals. 

Wolves had indirectly changed the behavior of the rivers. 
Overwhelmingly, the reintroduction of wolves into the park was positive. 
Let us all dare to overcome fears and take steps to replenish God’s creatures. 
For in doing so, Earth becomes a Garden of Eden for all to enjoy.

Animal Abuse

..."Animal abuse should be a felony."

Animal abuse should be a felony.
No creature should be beaten, tortured, and abused.
I have never known how anyone could be
Malicious and demented, so cruel and unforgiving.
And for what, what is the reward for you,
Laughter for a moment, looking big, showing off for your crew.

Animals, I have seen, 
Bloodied, beaten within an inch of their lives, dying.
Unloved, unwanted, neglected, abandoned
Starving for food and love, in my head I can hear them crying.
Every little piece of love is needed, every little soul needs fed.

(Great white place)

Many have heard but few have seen
The beauty that lies with the heart of Africa
It folks, falls, flora, wildness life, wildness animals, lakes, rives, 
This is a place with the strength of a lion and flies as an eagle
Primitive and naïve is not in our vocabulary-cultural identity
Our dressing speaks of our roots, environment and pride 
Come and experience our greatness in the Estosha National Park

I am built stronger as the lion and taller to see my future as the giraffe
I am built to stand the waves of life as the crocodile – so beautiful
I am built with powerful vision just as an eagle-to see beyond my failures
I am built as wise as the cobra and humble as the dove – hilarious
I am built with a large heart for forgive – hefty heart, big as elephant 
I am built with strength in hands as the horns of a buffalo – splendor 
Come and experience our greatness in the Estosha National Park

We are people of all colors, cultures but communion in one as chameleons
We are people and place of peace, pleasure and leisure -  Etosha
We are people of attitude of gratitude and as multitude as springbok 
We are people pleasers; I am black with white heart- the beauty of zebra 
We are people that can survive in the draught-the power of Oryx
We are people with dark skin as the rich soil of Africa, dark as impalas
Come and experience our greatness in the Estosha National Park

House Cats

How varied in color they are
One after another, a palette
Under house cat code
Some will stay true to their species others get spoiled
Everyone has their own individuality.

Cats never slow down
Are hyperactive comets, ricocheting
Throughout a house
Settling down is forgotten completely.

Dancing Raindrops

D   Daisy plays, and Violet bathes in a sudden evening rain                       
A   Anointed too, is Rosie's face, with every gentle drop       
N   Narcissus squeals with laughter, too, and sings a sweet refrain      
C   Crickets dance, wear plaid berets, and do a Celtic hop! 
I    In the mud we’ll find two weeds, they flop about a lot!
N   Nanny Mum, and Granny Plum , play banjos in the band
G   Gardenia's cheeks are white and sleek, she scrubs from end to end
R   Rabbits hear the jubilee, and from their holes they pop
A   A squirrel or two, come down the tree, where all the fuss began
I    In spite of fear, the little mouse, looks out to see what’s up
N   Nearby, the cat, just waves his hat, allows the mice some fun!
D   Dogs join in, start chasing cats, they splash, and play like kids
R   Rainbows fill the evening sky, where now the sun peeks in 
O   Overhead, the clouds are tinged, in greens, and blues and reds
P   Pretty is the world tonight, refreshed, and smelling good
S   Softly now the pitter-pat upon on the evening’s hood

Narwhal Secrets

N arwhal... fathomless dreamer of the deep
     A resting beauty and fantastic myth
          R arest of rare, chased from the land by modern man
               W here Unique Horns once pranced the forests, left only Corpses Whaling
                    H eathen magic has again cast its spell and hidden you

BIRDS acrostic


    B    reathless each day the winged ones burst and unite into the twilight frieze--
     I     s there a more delicate touch to the sight than the songbirds as they take to the sky?
     R    eveling while entwined with the tailwinds-- delighting the indigo breeze,
     D    ashing on the last rays of sun to nip the laziest mosquito on the fly --
     S    ong of the satisfied sung—they fade into the welcoming night bosom of the trees.

Natural branches sit empty among the lonely pine
Old leaves have fallen from every branch and vine
Vegetation is unable to live, unable to grow
Everyday we can feel the cold wind's blow
Many hunters go out looking for wild prey
Before the bright morning, before the end of day
Every year we have a feast of thanksgiving
Remembering why we must keep on living

Spectacular- for contest

Stock-still in gold dawn light while many sleep,
perched, scanning, on abandoned termite heap.
Expectant, skin tingles as in cold breeze
contrasting with the stillness of the trees.
The tracking beeper focuses our minds
as aerial picks target from behind.
Cheetah ten yards away now caught off guard
upwind of us, head cocked and staring hard.
Long looks exchanged,unspoken things are passed
and finally, spell broken, goes at last.
Reeling, those breathless minutes went so fast.

A memory of my time in Namibia, 2009, and the above
photo was taken by me. We nicknamed him 'Blackeye'.  No fence between us. Awesome.

W hales are one of the largest an most beautiful magnificent marine mamals in the world

Words - The Heart of Imagination

Words are what are learned after being born
Our language a tool is sometimes forlorn.
Real communication flows from the soul.
Deciphering it has challenges in any goal.
Since dawn of time it has changed each morn.
Take any animal sounds they are learned.
Hearing is only the beginning to be discerned.
Expecting we are sole communicators’ unearned.
Hearts beat the same in humankind and animal.
Error is ours to believe creating an anomal.
An arrogance of mankind makes it tangible.
Reason seeks out nothing, makes all reasonable.
Trace to whatever past you believe to be palpable.
Our classes have been taught to seek the truth.
From our past days and nights we were uncouth.
Imagination is not just humankind’s thoughts alone.
Make no mistake; all creatures have structure of bone.
Along with organs similar as our science has shone.
Great life, whether by science or religion has grown?
Intellect is not the only decision for any zone.
Now go and listen to all living things with a tone.
Allow not only your mind to decipher only prone.
Take into the future that all life be continually sown.
Imagination is in your soul, and can never be a clone.
Our words are a bark or growl to others as known.
Now imagine your experience, if we could only moan.

Cats are a curious lot
All species playful; some dangerous
They care for their own
Some, like people, are loners.

Perhaps the animal inside is an excuse
Or maybe a legitimate ruse  -
Either way  it  is understandable
The reason for having an inner animal :
Deep inside the conscious  and thinking woman you are,
Exist  primal  force and urges  by far
Sinful to the eyes of many outsiders  -  aye
To bishop  ayatollah or rabbi.
(Rabbi    of course  differs  from rabbit
Or should I say delicious dinner  which is my habit)
You explain your  urges by hiding inside the animal,
Even though animals themselves  don’t use this fable.
Refer for example     to the virgin
Sturgeon,  who   needs no urgin’
Love, lust,  dove , dust  -
You’ll find that they  all  move, must  -
Lurking in their breast is  no inner human pal
Icily saying,  “You have no right to be natural;
Keep your feelings and urges well controlled
Exactly like humans are usually told:
And  if you’re lucky  the inner human will
Fail  and the animal you are,   will prevail.”  . . . .. . 
Or maybe the human will win and say
X - rated  urges are simply not acceptable today.

Rarely do they kill just to kill…but for survival.
Even when wild dogs kill sheep, wolves get the blame.
Mysterious, aloof, confident, proud and beautiful
Every action a wolf takes is for the good of the pack.
Many people fear Canis lupis and kill them randomly.
Believing that the death of a wolf helps profits,
Erroneously they are  killed when flocks are attacked.
Ranchers round up and set out to eradicate…the wolf.

Killing creatures like my murdered friend, a hybrid wolf (83%), hurts.
Adventures in our family, he was part of our pack.
Vacations, fun, and visits to parks ended; a needless killing.
I could not believe my yearling wolf was dead; poisoned.
Kavik, I still miss you, my playful, loyal friend.

Picky child I was
before & still am as
I’m writing this
picky, petite poem –

I am different
now…I’ve changed for
the better, though
it was a challenging
Clever and cheery
teenager I am in the
present and past,
getting used to
foods I once didn’t
Kangaroos hop with
hope happily, tigers
hunt wildly &
sneakily, cats meow
for people food & to
receive a feel-good
rub  (independent,
little &
dogs yap for
(dependent, little &
big buddies), ants
gather & work, flies
hover around a heap
of droppings, debris
& remains/deceased
bodies, hyenas
attack & laugh their
tails off, wolves
get into their
private packs, fish
swim playfully with
the family, gofers
barrel & eat up the
veggies from my
garden, cheetahs run
at full speed,
finches chirp their
chants, dutiful 
dolphins go with the
wave’s ascending &
descending flow,
rabbits hop & chew
on carrots
cheerfully, lions
RAWR & laze around
on fields of golden
grace, bears huddle
with cubs & hide in
solitary, dark
caves, enormous
elephants eloquently
walk about on the
African, swaying
savannas & tons of
terrains much like
California in some
sense, lambs graze
in their
looking eagerly for
their shepherd,
lizards explore,
roaches scatter
around on the
kitchen & bathroom
floor, bedbugs bite
for the sake of
their sick appetite,
etc. ; is there
something new to
learn every night
and day? (The answer
is yes by deh way) I
guess I have to do
some research and
explore some more on
these subjects –
that’s my next
chillaxing, cool
Yet, I still go back
to my picky, old,
childlike, yet
innocent habits –
picking foods that I
cherish most and I
implore for more
scrumptious dishes
that I can hardly
ignore & boast about
it more and more
till my mouth
becomes sore! SCORE!
(means SUCCESS!, I
nailed it, or other
definitions behind

Another day to battle or play..depends on your level in the food chain
Never so hot and there!..a tree to snooze with one eye opened under, in this plain  
Imagine the brook is cooler... too hot for the paw is the sand to thread on, Pain!
Mine is to lie with my belly in the air.... who is the smell in my turf, insane? 
Antelope!... mine is to stretch a paw and lunch is your name
