Premium Member Diamonds in her Heart
She was the plainest buzzard in the chicken coop.
Man, is she plain, the roosters used to say.
But one rooster gave her a chance. They shared a nest.
She had diamonds in her heart. He told people
But they did not believe, for...Read More

In a Mirror 1-4
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 7/1/2019


Like a day dying
in the twilight hour, 
without hurry you are saying goodbye to the fields
along the beaten path heading for your domain to play the never-ending game
you hang next dusty day of your life
with your...Read More

The roosters are in full glory crowing mode today.
Some dogs are challenging them now.
Between the barks and the ruffs and the coos and the caws
it is difficult to hear the traffic on the interstate.
An orange butterfly breezes down, seemingly from...Read More

it glides smooth in sly trail of swerving sinister way 
in timid sky eyeing the vibrant landscape to find
through the focused hawkeye the unwary prey.

He soars to the sky;
a lady bird is watching,
so while plummeting,
he twists magnificently;
not quite an “old” buzzard yet

Tall necks upward stretch.
Long slender legs start to move.
is the flamingo’s tune when
the beach becomes a dance floor.

Our buzzards and flamingos...mismatched as can be,
tho each have wings and feet, the buzzard is compact:
flamingos, tall and slim, scoop shrimp so charmingly,
while buzzards from the air, hunt prey to be attacked.

Somehow, this hobby recently appeared to merge

colorful young flamingo
hailed by the moniker Domingo
toast of garden parties
mingling with elite in tepid lakes
narcissistic moments 
enraptured by his own image
“pretty bird, pretty bird,” 
gloater extraordinaire muses
confident in his precious plumage
wasting not one thought on aging

buzzards and flamingos
A buzzard from his vantage point of sweeping lofty heights
Enjoyed a cornucopia of captivating sights.
He soared above the rolling hills, the meadows and ravines,
His bird's-eye-view encompassed ocean blues and forest greens.
But once, a splash of colour made his sharp-eyed vision...Read More

Sheldon Cooper Tells a Riddle
What would you call the young hatchling, for fun,
Of a buzzard crossed with a flamingo?
The answer is moot ’cause it couldn’t be done,
So the joke is on you: Buzzingo!

B is for Buzzard under my hat,
my brain meaty and raw.
His talons cling like puppet strings.
His rabid teeth chew and gnaw.

just a cold sentinel of death.
Not like the life-giving stork —
impervious to the stench of your...Read More

The New World vultures – buzzards and hawks,
Circle-soar as they look for prey, among stalks.
Chomping smaller bird out of their feeders, so keen.
Turkey buzzards, so ruthless and intensely mean.

Inhumanities buzzard picks at the scraps
squabbling over trash
vultures of the pavement
denying everything has life

A confetti of money
the wedding funeral of it’s own immoral concept
squawking the incantations
of debt
the milking breast
for these divisions of hate

blindfolded into prisons

Big Bird Had Been A Buzzard
Big Bird Had Been A Buzzard

A big bird who had been a buzzard,
Someone told me and have heard;
We were afraid;
A deposit made;
Awkward offering on roof occurred.

This actually happened and whole
roof was covered with it.,
