I heard from PrimeAryan DT
that socialism kills nations.

I thought it was fascist totalitarianism
that killed nations,
the lack of democratic social intelligence,
social investment,
non-violent communication,
restorative, 
therapeutic 
win/win social justice. 

My grandparents,
at least on my mother's side,
who seemed ancient and fragile to me,
often opined,

That's what many people think of you
More than two weeks ago 
That reputation was proven true.

Towns and cities were locked down
Because of the ash falls you spewed
Many businesses were unoperational
Animals were left unattended...Read More

light shows tricky traps on rocky shoreline.
Len loves to watch brigades of birds that lurk.	

While lighthouse keeper, Lenny tends his work,
voracious, screeching seagulls seem to pray.

A quaint, one room, busy place,
Full of good old southern grace,
Lay to the east of Hawthorn Hill,
Somewhat beyond the daffodills.
Over a field and past the cows,
Beneath the deep magnolia boughs;
Beside smooth, clear Crab Creek,
In the shadow of Cheyenne Peak;
Down a...Read More

Premium Member Seagulls Sip the Morning Sunshine
Beneath blue, cloudless, endless, blissful line;
briny breeze filled sea along the coastline,
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine
changeful flight swooping from azure confine.

Beneath blue, cloudless, endless, blissful line
dance above ever-changing rippling waves,
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine

Shifting clouds compete for the best positions
The fresh scent of change carries on the wind
Birds are banking to land skimming the faulty cliffs, 
crabs scuttle into hidden crevices
as drizzle turns to rain

A vixen lies down to pant at midday,
the grass takes her shape,
bends for hours to the heat of her body.
Water, trees, forestations of fungi
amid a deeply impression’d earth ---- Frogs
glimmer on clammy pads,
as a loose congress of small mirrors.

Premium Member Night on the Beach



A mottled crab scuppers its sea legs
in fluorescent foam.
Blue pods rattle on green tides.
Bladder wrack, Mermaid’s Hair
washing tangled ankles.
There are voices in my open mouth,
they roll over a briny tongue,
intone words from the breath
of spray and brume.
Where the sky hangs,...Read More

Grains of sand 
hiding small burrows;
every tiny sand crabs, the Emerita Analoga
needs its burrow.
intense sunlight’s warm but
has its dangers, even for a tiny crab’s skin.

Kelso has a boat
smeared to the gunnels,
with cawk and greasy weeds.

At a prow of dawn
he hauls dripping lobster,
and their pots
up the scummy steps
of the silty stone harbor,
pushing a barrow
into the towns brick narrows.

Kelso barters claws and tails
to barkeeps, crab-mongers,

The extreme will to survive
Life finds a way
The struggle to adapt
Alone - we become predator or prey 

Like a crab in a bucket
There all alone
Climbs his way to the top
Liberated – like a coop that’s been flown

Tragically - when the...Read More
