Premium Member The Great North Woods
Glaciers moved with determined strength 
in their destinies, pushing and upheaving
boulders large beyond belief
and whatever else stood in their paths
while coursing over and through the earth's crust
scraping into creation a landscape
of mountains, cliffs, valleys, moraines,
dumlins, eskers and notches,
kettle lakes, cirques...Read More

A variety of fragrant lilacs in the ground 
Purple and white asters, doilies in baby joy pink.
Prettier flowers in a garden are rarely found
My bird baths are used by cardinals and one blue jay I think

Verdant grasses are moist when...Read More

Falling Leaf
I feel myself floating, spiralling,
Swaying softly with the breeze,
I look up at the grey hued sky above me,
The vastness of the world overwhelms me,
Engulfs me.
As I continue my floating descent downwards,
I pass others, some still attached and solid others, like...Read More

holed up deep underground

Enter the Bunker


Feeling the calamity coming,
edgy thoughts ... 
enter the bunker

Following in Hitler’s footsteps,
going down underground ... 
into the safe panic place

The isolated catacomb haven,
dark insulated protection ...

Hiding in the bowels of the earth, 
reproach worms on a flesh...Read More

Pure Black Diamond


deep in the bowels of the earth
this treasure is found,
dug out by the men
who work underground,

they crawl and hack to fill the store
waiting for the call, mind your heads
as a blast is used to loosen more 
this black diamond.

Ripples
You missed a shit-storm
of dysfunction
geysered from the bowels of the earth
raining down
dark sticky obstacles

I soldier through
as I always do

In my dream you come for me
we sleep under the root
of a giant tree
where you live
clean
and free
of the stench
I retreat to that...Read More

Ghosts of Buzzard's Breath

And proud rusting relics telling tales of striking gold.
The rush from East, from North and South, by wagon, train or foot.
Days not all that long ago, in tall...Read More

Volcanic Fury
Deep within the bowels of the earth
a pressure builds up in intensity
As lava and gases increase in growth
bubbling and seething with angry fury

The pressure continues to build up

Which finally weakens and blows its top

London’s clock just struck three
A forewarning of events to follow
The gloomy afternoon, an old mans delight
The weather of no concern, working late into the night

Of good will towards all men
Mistletoe and family gatherings

Deep recesses
Out of the deep recesses 
Of human hearts

And the silver vein discovered

Out of the depths of the sea
