Oh, Oh Kakapo

Oh, oh Kakapo 
You are the world's rarest
Dweller on the ground- Ancient parrot
Your tinged emerald hue is the fairest,
The greatest respect you merit.

Oh, oh Kakapo
Magnificent New Zealand you are from
Never had an enemy,
Until the humans did come
Bringing the ship's rats
and the scary cats
When the Europeans arrived
You had no chance to survive

Oh,oh Kakapo
In your island country
There were hundreds of thousands
of you
Committed to a small jail cell
There now survives so very few.

*Dedicated to one of the most amazing, and rarest
birds in the world, the Kakapo from New Zealand.
62 are currently left in existence.

Have you heard of the Kakapo? A Kakapo … I guess the answer’s no! Kakapo’s are a breed of parrot but they cannot fly They are far too heavy and would fall from the sky! Kakapo’s can live for a hundred years… A hundred years – I couldn’t believe my ears It may sound strange yes even quite absurd But I’ve fallen in love with this cute rare bird 11~14~16

A Stormy Day in the Southern Alps


An environmentalist in love with his endowment, cast an eye upon the defender
of nature’s delicate balance, she the soul queen of conservation, together the two assimilate like the prevailing hurricane lock horns as the beast would in battle.The vibration rattles the old tin roof of our cabin, while the black possums scarper

clouds ejaculate
far below blank out the sun
Aoraki                     smiles

The tempest cuts through the backwoods far beyond the horizon, deep
in camouflage torments the deanery of elementary life forms. Flashes
of lightning waver through the gloom become centre stage, thunder 
rumbles on, a drum roll an intro to a symphony of hail harmoniously
pounding the diverse depth of the valley

drowning in colour
the forest canopy yields
Kakapo            declines

A True Garden of Eden

There once was a recent true garden of eden not too long ago.
It wasn't inhabited with people. It was inhabited by the Kakapo.
They had no natural enemies in their garden of eden,
no predators to stalk these docile flightless birds always land dwelling
so they never evolved to sense and flee from any danger
because danger never existed in the Kakapo garden. Danger was a stranger.
These docile living creatures maybe
actually experienced a life of true blissful serenity.
Their heaven on earth, so to speak.
The humans arrived and settled bringing pets/predators with them
as well as much of the many variety of predatory vermin
and so now the Kakapo has lost it's true garden of eden.
Why? Why else? Because of humans.
They're an endangered specie also and that's truly an unforgivable sin.
We suposedly had once our true garden of eden
and I gues our attitude now is, "If we can't have ours back, well then neither wil anything."
