Caribou Ice Cream
There is a new ice cream
It is A in Canada
It is called The Caribou
An ice cream bar on a stick
Sold in the groceries stores

A hard chocolate shell
With a rice crispy coat
Bite into it -vanilla ice cream
The caramel flowing out

A Day in Denali
The phone app said "unhealthy"
To describe Denali's air.
The sky was gray and smoky
All the hours we were there.

So we were disappointed;
Thought the day would be a bust
'Til somebody hollered "Moose!"
Our brakes kicked up a heap of dust.

A mother moose and...Read More

in Alaska
In Alaska, running loose
Are grizzlies, caribou and moose.
Eagles soar and whales cavort
And salmon fishing is a sport.

Glaciers calve and mountains rise,
Scenery to mesmerize.
Sadly, now, for tourist folk
The air is filled with thick gray smoke.

I am starting on a tour;
Don't know...Read More

Upon a barren stage

Thirty Shekel Pieces

Sealed truth got killed
on a silver moon, 
Arctic polar bear night

A belly full of blubber lies
got spilled 
on the scarlet frozen ice

And no grief amount 
of Inuit insomnia igloo intuition
seemed to caribou care

Because every tundra fable,
any angel snow-face Eskimo child...Read More

The Alaskan Pipeline

1968 confirmed the year 
Of discovery by Humble Oil
To North America’s largest oil field,
On the North Slope of the Brooks Range,
A west to east

Alaska, The Last Frontier

Alaska; the wilderness state, the last frontier:
Where majestic mountains, 
Deliver streams into flowing rivers: 
Down slopes covered in forests 
Of Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock
That dominates the landscape.
The name Alaska originates 
From the Aleut word 'Aleyska,'
Meaning the...Read More

Fur Trapper
I zip swiftly along on my snow machine,
admist a white blanket with spots of green,
my trapline runs along this stretch,
Alaskan cold makes smoke of breath.

The snowpack has been good this year,
goes a little way to allaying my fears,
but who knows...Read More

Catalina roses
A pitchfork and a wheelbarrow
down by the caribou crossing
where an aphrodite's twilight
embraces the north country...

the churning of nature's marrow
has me turning and tossing
under a cold silver starlight
that blankets this land of mystery...

paint me a water-colored fresco
where a flaxen sun exposes

Stay tuned
For the soon to be boom
Between the sun and moon
And any flowers that do or don't bloom
During morning, night and afternoon

Nobody is immune
Never assume
Acting like a buffoon
And being rude or lewd
Just because you think there may be...Read More

You want it all.

The lakes and tar sands

Fresh water and fish

Arctic diamonds

Pipelines that confine

The caribou

And make the hunt ridiculous.

Forests for the churning

Of lusty, gossip press

And row houses

Like card houses

In six figure excess.

You set the price

You peg the share return

You fudge...Read More

Cold Moon
Moon-bounced light, flint-hard

cold air, sharp as a shard

creatures cling
not the absolute, the devastating
