Poetry Shared

Ocean draws me love
Come, come relax as waves tap
Toes, pelicans, gulls

Fun floating face down
Snorkel, mask, strange ocean clown
Below fish dart, chase
Look for love, food, fun, frolic
Similiar needs_fish~humans

Love, food, fun, frolic,friendship
Fish congregate in close schools
Human congregate in needs
Needs as poetry shared

Contest:"Fun & Frolic"

summer harvest sweet

summer harvest sweet
plump fruit ready for picking
a cornucopia treat
one would be wise to know how
quickly ripeness turns to rot

Blueberry Muffin

Blueberry muffin. Sweet things embedded in cake. What a breakfast treat! Blueberry season is near. Bring plenty of muffins here.

Candy Cane

Red and white stripes round
and round the long shepherd's crook
sweet and refreshing
the first one of the season
most certainly not the last.

Can you hear the sound

     a voice calling out to you

        whispers of times gone

            a could have should have would have

                  regret is a lonely tune...

Tanka About Corn On The Cob

succulent and sweet
kernels unattainable
stuck between my teeth
hastily reaching forward 
A toothpick will do the trick

Lamb Tanka

Lambs gambolling free
Oblivious to their role
Feeding and clothing
But today they are playful
Tails a bobbing as they run
Roast Lamb on Sundays menu

wolfish love

the full moon is bright
shows him her face as he nears
he’s getting hairy
his heart leaps at her beauty
he’s still hungry and eats her

Tantalizing Memory

Now a memory,
Mama's long dining table,
Big enough for nine.
Great platters over-flowing
With fresh food from her garden.

My Huckle Berry Heaven 2K13

Many of time have
I sat upon earthy ground,
amongst Huckle Berry patches
gorging in Huckle Berry heaven
with glutton lips painted purple.
