The Owl and the Coyote
coyote, funny, nature,
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...
coyote, winter, wisdom,
It’s cold here in Central Texas
Winter has laid its hand upon us
The night is clean and pure
With just a whisper of oak and mesquite fires
Gray brown coat hidden by the dark
slinking through each stark shadow
a lone howl caught and repeated
they hunt together this night
tracking their prey with sharp noses
coyote, life, light,
The Flame, aflicker, licks and flays,
illuming evening’s negligees
With braided curls she swirls and sways,
coyote, angst, conflict,
Max is mad at Molly
Samantha’s sore at Seth
Freida’s freaking out at Frodo
While Hobbits hold their breath
Jack jokes about poor Jill
She hits him with...
Creature In The Night
coyote, animal, howl, moon, mystery,
Where cold stars exist in the dark,
serene winds whisper to trees
and scarce human ears can listen,
lone songs wail in the distance
in frozen moon's silver spotlight,
coyote, native american, war, cousin,
The year 1890
Wounded Knee, South Dakota
My tribe lost their lives
The USS 7th
On their orders so
To round up the Sioux
Railroad herd them and go
coyote, imagery, night, rain,
The dank petrichor of grainy night,
meters stand like gravestones,
the obsidian avenue slick as a sapphire,
windowed granite rising in sharp cut shadows,
wind gusting, tumbleweed clouds...
Cat's Wild Adventure
coyote, adventure, cat,
Cat's Wild Adventure
So, once upon a time, there was a cat
that had no real home, and all alone,
she'd wander here and there amid the yards
Winter Let's Us Hold Our Breath
Winter let's us hold our breath,
and pause just inside the door,
we spend more time at window frame
watching the snowflakes fall.
The slumber of trees and cars
coyote, animal, children, fairy,
A giraffe approached
An elephant met me on the jungle path
I stored many thoughts in his trunk
A monkey smiles at me
Now I have no more...
Quest for Gold
coyote, native american,
painted desert lay before them
hills with rings of gold and amber clay
few plants, scarce water
just a coyote or roadrunner
on horseback they rode
dreaming of hidden gold
A Fugue of Passing Fancies
coyote, nature, night,
an orchestrated night glitters
to the wand wave of the maestro unborn
sweetness licks on liquorice sticks
fingered on silver keys
the moon melts like a honey...
a boy and girl carve out
Deep orange pumpkin gutted
The scent of roasted brown seeds
the small lantern's grin and eyes are lit
by flickering candle...
a boy and girl carve out
deep orange pumpkin gutted
the scent of roasted brown seeds
gasps - -
the small lantern's grin and...
A little dog
coyote, timeold, dog, dog, old,
Once I roamed through the woodlands
With my large old shepherd companion.
We walked fearless, through redwoods and pines,
Through vines and ferns
To the top...
PDs Inner Animals
The Fox a cunning sort
Racing through the fields
Hunting not just for sport
Sly and sure, steady is he
The Wolf a beautiful beast
Uses timeless instinct
Song to the Moon-Repost
coyote, dedication, imaginationhope, moon, sky,
The moon hung red in the sky,
too heavy for the sky to uphold
she leaned against the rooftops;
the stars glittered in fear about her.
I walked beneath...
coyote, animal, death, nature,
On the plains in the Texas panhandle
The fight for survival is real
As I watched from the derrick
On a short smoke break
A scene rather harsh...
Cowboys, Made of Awesome
coyote, america, appreciation, celebration, fun,
Some modern folks, when they hear his name,
will roll their eyes and look ashamed,
thinking the cowboy is uncivilized,
with his hats, and guns, and round-up rides.
When We Were Gods
coyote, history, mythology,
While thunder clapped for an encore,
we put on iron boots
and danced in puddles
that reflected the obsidian
of Raven's crick-craw chorus
between the ripples.
I splashed with rod in...
coyote, america, anger, angst, animal,
You feel your body falling in blackness.
You snatch your shoulder to the right.
The nausea stops.
The bottomless pit is hell.
Do not enter the midnight.
Up in the...
A Lover's Symphony
coyote, memory, nature, night, passion,
I heard a crackling
Home Anywhere For The Holidays
coyote, christmas, holiday, home, humor,
The bright Christmas lights on my city house are so colorful and traditional,
hopefully when I get my high utility bill I won't become too irrational,
coyote, earth, humor, moon, relationship,
#68. MOON WINK
I took a trip for fun,
between the Earth and Sun,
slid quietly between,
the star sun's scarlet sheen,
from its radiant show,
