groundhog, nature, winter,
This February will not usher spring,
wisteria like grapes hung on their roods;
more pewter shadows does the season bring.
Now I've misplaced all the beatitudes
to lambent grasses...
Deemed significant culturally,
a fantastic and old comedy
is this film I love,
which is the tale of
a weatherman played by Bill Murray.
This weatherman Phil has been sent

*I wrote this a few years ago, but don't think I ever posted it?
groundhog, friend, fun,
On the Firth betwixt Carlisle and Deep Creek
so the crown is worn and the trumpet blares!
A King and his Fool of common fates...
BLACK SUNDAY 21st OCTOBER 2018
groundhog, computer, humor, poetry,
Twenty first of October in two thousand and eighteen
Was the worst disaster poetry soup had seen
Poems wiped off the website as all the poets slept
A Silent Song
groundhog, imagery, romance, romantic, romantic love,
"A Silent Song"
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Blessed or cursed
Write a verse
Remembers last night’s dream
Grabs a napkin, spills his spleen
Shoves it in his pocket
Table for One
groundhog, artautumn, lonely, morning,
Insistent starkness claims a leafless day
Where morning breaks with silent calm and dread
The slope of field is framed, behind the glass
reveals a fallen tree, with...
A Bit of Lofty Chit Chat
Greetings from Canada dear readers ! Let me cajole you with a wee bit of fun
and ardent banter. Well, obviously I am Canadian...
I live in the woods
groundhog, animal, nature,
I live in the woods.
Much of it is untouched.
Humans have not been in it for hundreds of years.
Habitat for the wild ones.
We have seen...
groundhog, animal, fate, january, nature, seasons, wind,
Juggernaut winds howling south;
Arctic colds, chill, in their mouths.
No respite through winter days
Unless north creep sunshine’s rays.
And the groundhog comes too late
Relegating to its fate
We purchased a shed for our yard.
To fill it was not very hard -
The sleds and the bikes
And the things no one likes
With a flimsy...
Dreams of Spring
groundhog, dream, love, spring,
*It is Groundhog Day
As a breath of mild winter blows
Warm air arrival with melting snow
Dreams of spring emerge - when, - no-one knows
The groundhog tries...
Ground Hogs and Roses
groundhog, valentines day,
soft roses, held in bloodless fingers,
bleed a scented redness
caressed by lusts ache
masquerading as a gentle touch
each petal a charade
a “loves me – loves me...
A small tree sits among
At this time of day
a groundhog may appear
over the edge of something earthy.
The world arrives each day
Hunting for Spring
groundhog, dream, imagery, longing, nature, seasons, spring,
We’re so tired, of winter’s, snow and ice,
For too long, we have been, within our house, winter’s price.
Why won’t you come, to visit us, and...
Punxsutawney Phil is not seeking his shadow.
He's peering out to find his lady love.
If she appears he'll woo her to his burrow
And we can deal...
The Wound That Never Heals
groundhog, christian, husband, mother, music, night, prayer,
Science can’t save you, neither can religion,
at least Popper and Niebuhr, philosophers and poets,
are entertainers, which is why actors and athletes
are paid so much. Thanks...
A Girl Called Fate
groundhog, angst, , fate,
He never had the luck
nor the down of an evanescent duck,
in this world where the dice is thrown
just another gamble which side of the track.
January’s start. . .
I hibernate in my cave
with bare thoughts
January’s end. . .
may February’s groundhog
see its shadow...
groundhog, dark, imagery, psychological,
The letter was typewritten
No final salutation
but it was there nevertheless
Bleeding Bold Black
thick cursive stroke
With knife point calculation
groundhog, adventure, childhood, education, fantasy, children, funny,
Eyes looking back at me
groundhog, introspection, life, me, me,
Gazing into my bathroom mirror
My eyes looking back at me
Anguish and misery, all i see
Years just like groundhog day
Never seeing it any other way
Global Warming Tanka
groundhog, angst, animal, easter, weather,
Encased in thick ice
Sparrow shivers, sad demise
Flowers had emerged
Once colorful, now turned brown
Snowy carpet for Easter
Frozen bunny dies
Easter egg hunts ‘neath snow mounds
Sun plays hide...
Movie Mayhem---and I'm Exhausted
groundhog, funny, me, me, high school,
"American Grafitti" took me back again to High School in the 1960's
"Back to the Future's" nifty hot rod took me back in time and almost...
AWAKENING FROM WINTER'S LETHARGY
groundhog, dog, spring,
Folks in rural Pennsylvania think that Punxsutawney Phil
is, by all means, that happy and friendly groundhog
that predicts the beginning of spring on a forest log;...
