mayfly, age, childhood, death, growth, life, love,
I’m shadow’s child,
grown on the lake,
by women on their own.
The reedy cattails,
and brown mud pots,
occupy my time.
I’m taller now,
and skinny too,
If I Were A Mayfly
mayfly, day, how i feel, leaving, life,
If I were a mayfly, living but for a day,
I’d still live each moment with no thought of goodbye,
Ever hopeful like summer in...

and into wheaten fields’ did trust,
a volley of ethereal rust,
caught by tempered, evening gust

and we are one of it's songs.
It laughed mischievously at black holes,
that were hidden in massive throngs.

My bells, are shared with you,
At the ringing in of the taut day
And the ringing out of the mayfly
The bells, brazen, lucid, warm,
If I should find a Butterfly

If I should find a Butterfly,
Neath the Willow tree,
I’d recall how she’d been an ugly bug,
But now a wondrous, sight to see....

spring's end is nigh

The Savage Pond

Look out over a pond's banks
what do you see down there
a smooth unruffled surface
things lazily flying round
A frog pops up its head and
perches basking in...
mayfly, absence, anger, conflict, courage, freedom, inspirational,
The lifetime of a mayfly is a
single day leading to eternity,
while a single day for a man
may be lost and ever forgotten
Within seven days...
A short-lived blossom of Spring
like a mayfly that lives for the day,
the pathos of beauty so fleeting,
a few syllables that remain,where
less is more...
POETRY is a process
POETRY is a process
not an artwork to admire. Words to say,
caught by the day,a one-off,’ as is’ moment,
images in sound.My voice spoken, a unique
Born into the world
The mayfly lives for a day

Cataclysmic nuptials like pebbles fall, between the slats of the grate of dawn
And end to hover 'bove the wave of life's eternal turning grave

about the things I need to do
but my life makes me feel so i'll
like I have...
mayfly, age, nature, youth,
When as a young boy
I’d stroll through a meadow
Clothed with wandering sheep
Along a slow meandering brook
To a lake
Where a silent willow...
The Vastness of Time

And you can end up living forever.
However, leaving aside forever,

mayfly, jesus, religious, star,
O! Garnet star, what hydra-like,
How humanity doth envy,
What sayest thou of Man?
(Surely he would say)
O - but lowly Mayfly,
That flutter for a day
MUD ON MY HANDS
I do not know?
Green eyes in the crevices of rocks
will not let the fossil weep
for innocent sun.
A mayfly floats like
a dry leaf on water, in the circuit
mayfly, imagination, on writing and words
washed by the tide,
my mind's eye-
until captured and penned..
