blemished sky erupts
a waterfall... a  river
the cormorant dived

the mile high eagle
hunting... not gone unnoticed
meercats wary

heavy rain... torrents

on feathers
saturated   so
your wings spread
your need
to dry enough to fly

Every Four Years The Lions Roar
Every four years, the Lions roar.
They roar for peace, or 
they roar for war.
They roar for less, or 
they roar for more;
many times,
we recall, that
they roar,
and they roar, 
and they roar 
for it all. 

They roar to protect 
those within

Premium Member First for the year:
I got my first duck feather today,
First one for the season of spring,
Standing up proudly, I couldn't walk away,
To me, feathers are gifts, straight from the wing.

I watched as the turtles all swam about,
And saw a cormorant perched on the...Read More

Diaries from distant shores I

I think about the moment when we'll vanish 
on the doormat of an empty house
because I know some day they will come -

She Comes, Part One

For all the night she trod the furrowed earth
As she has walked all winter in her wake
In seeking for the child she brought to birth
The maiden bride whom Hades chose to take

The gibbous moon is waxing to the bright
And shedding...Read More

The Skeleton coast
Morning fog was parting  for the day's performance,
and an audience of just me sat cross legged,
waiting for ghosts.
They appeared slowly, one by one.
Old whalers, freighters and, fifty yards out, 
slate grey bones scarred with burnt sienna,
a young trawler.
A Cormorant...Read More

Wide eyed ocean watch
Safely removed from spindrift
Waves, spume and spray batter shore.

Premium Member Witness Statement
As I watched,
like a lion with its prey
the wave growled and snarled
while crouching, preparing to pounce.
Rushing up the sloping shingle beach,
it reached out and dragged pebbles
down into its lair.

I heard
the rasping raking of the beach tumbling
pell-mell and headlong into the...Read More

Early Morning in Walvis Bay
Hand in hand with the breaking pink light of dawn, 
A light east breeze dances on tiptoes upon the water’s surface. 
I stand on the wooden deck, looking out onto the quiet bay,
Scattered boats gently sway in their moorings.

Making me...Read More

The Mistaken who Mistook
No citadel’s too tall for mortals like you.
Even acclivity of mounts fear of bipeds like you.
Adam’s ale in its ampleness has lost its meaning.
And only with your condonance, 
do the flowers un-bud and birds do sing.
But let’s see, if this...Read More

Im  sanften  Abendlicht
Wehen die Blätter der Birke
Goldfähnchen im Wind 

In soft evening light
The leaves of the birch flutter
Golden banners in the wind 

En suave luz de la tarde
Ondean las hojas del abedul
Banderitas de oro en el viento

Wavelets On The Pool
Tiny wavelets on the pool today,  a gentle
breeze and raindrops fall with a rhythmic
pitter patter. The ducks and wildfowl pay
no heed, around the sedge bob and feed. 
The Heron standing as if frozen, his
cunning eye a prey has chosen....Read More

I teeter on the brink of possibility. 
The sun on the new horizon glistens 
its rays on the undulating sea of change. 

I gaze a while, drifting with a squawking gull, 
or diving with a hunting cormorant - 
lost in...Read More

To Live Again
She sits in silence bu the sea
And thinks about what might have been
She sees the waves crash to the shore
And wishes she was one of them

But as the Dunlins strut and the Cormorant dives
She wonders why she's still alive
The beast...Read More

By the Water's Edge
I sit by the waters edge
Sitting on the border of a concrete ledge
Surrounded by miss-shaped rocks
Formed by the years of repeated water knocks

I throw a line in the water
As a man sits next to me with his son and daughter

An Hour at the Beach
Driftwood benches stretch along the shoreline as far as the eye can see

While purple and green kelp stain the wet sand like messy 
brush strokes a child would make

Amongst the rocks and tide pools, a myriad of sea life abounds

Transition to love
  Strawberry night to morning
cormorant lifting water lillies
madness gone way beyond.
the moonlight becomes 
the chocolate night

   Our magic bracelets
can swimmers rise
where friends lie 
pallid and corporeal

  where lovers swell
to be alone,
how final?
they take the ride on...Read More

A Whisper
Expelling breath, pursed softly love,
My sibilant tongue expounds the phrase,
Of Eden found and feathered words,
Flown weather thieved. Carried on
A nomad breeze, perhaps to die
Unheeded upon the lake shore
Mud flats. Or picked apart by
Cormorant beaks and swallowed down,
Digested in an acid...Read More
