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.

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

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.

Whales - The Acrostic Style


W hales are one of the largest an most beautiful magnificent marine mamals in the world
H ave been hunted for centuries for oil, meat, other raw materials.

E xist, it be, blue whale, Orcas or killer whale, bowhead, humpback, gray or sperm whale, and they
S wim by moving their muscular tails(flukes) up and down, and not like fish left to right.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

Lean on me

Leanne loves milking her cows 
Everyday she dreams of those cows when she is away
A noise she hears
Nay says the horse, Nay says the cows
Nay says Linda, Nay says James
Everyday she hears voices

LEANne on me.....

Please bare a moment to pray and have thought for the dairy farmers in the world :-(

Orchard Fantasy

Opalescent the heavy moon glows low, 
Rhapsodizing in pale light, winding
Gauzy haze about gnarled branches.
Apples gleam red where moonbeams steal,
Nectaring night breezes in perfumed scent.
Innocence illumined, for creatures kneel
Commending praise beneath the trees.

Fabled branches, heavy with fruit,
Rustle leaves tinting toward gold and
Umbrella the still sanctuary cradled between old roots.
Invocation of gratitude to the Creator--
The orchard transcends to a cathedral,
Sanctifying a new year’s harvest, pure and clean.

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.

If my poundage frightens you, then get out of the way!
I will lift you high, with my baton trunk, shimmy you onto my back, as if you
were crowned royalty. I’ll parade you through the jungle. I’ll listen with
an ear or two, they are huge.  I make for good company. Just don’t put this
elephant in a circus or zoo, or this poundage will stampede!

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.
