Under the Full Moon
Daylight fades
As the pond jumps to life

Under the full moon
The call of the loon
Frogs croaking
Crickets chirping
Busy buzz of the dragonfly
Snake on the hunt
Flick of the tongue

Under the full moon
The yipping of the coyotes
Raccoon washes
The crayfish he snags
Bass jump
Catfish roll
Blue Heron...Read More

Passing Time
There's a river winding gently through the pastures on the flats,
collecting tributaries of little creeks that the lower ground attracts.

Friends of Wattle Creek
For many years, the creek, ran passed as a drain,
Polluted and unloved; a poisoned murky vein.
A favoured dumping place, for household unwanted things -
out of sight, out of mind; and no good what it brings.

Life was almost non-existent in the...Read More

My first ever mistake
The mistake I had never expected,
I did it without getting into awareness
Of how it would react.
Lacking that girl in me is like lacking
Of soul in my lonely body
Honestly speaking, she is my helm,
Stark, she is like a bird-cage in my...Read More

Siren Cryin'

She was Shreveport sitting on the front porch
that warm February Louisiana evening
When the cold, shrill code blue    siren news
slowly,   solemnly 
serenade waltzed up the white marble steps

The municipal, official flatline sympathy greeting
was tear-tissue dryly issued...Read More

Little Stream Without a Name
A day that’s spent in the forest is a day that’s heaven-sent,
with the air so crisp and clean with ample shade,
where Mother Nature’s in control with the forest as it’s meant,
and the struggle’s all around me in the glade.

Colin the Crayfish has been dishing up the dirt, 
Saying, Little Polly Pike is an outrageous flirt.

She hooked him by a rock pool, on the river bend.

Mamba Night at the Marsh
There's a party down at the marsh,
amongst all the wild amphibians,
Theresa toad croaking alongside her tadpoles,
all one thousand and one of them,

Carla the crayfish catering all the food,
all of the partygoers in a festive mood,
the dragonflies doing their aerial light...Read More

Around the headland we hit it head on
Four to five meter waves and breaking on top

A one time monster in military prowess
but unbelievably luke-warm in all global turmoils.
After one and two, it stands tallest in shipment of melodious sounds;
from its creative mind comes the modern-day seat belt
and the first to eradicate kid’s domestic judgments.

A Time Honoured Stretch of a River
There’s a time-honoured stretch of a river
that’s a cog in the natural wheel
flowing longer than mans’…
time upon earth
and home for the blackfish and eel.

goes back to the dinosaurs’ day

There lies a location with an Emerald Doorway

Waiting for it's own children to visit.
We slipped thru the portal again this summer,

Immediately, I sensed decades of joy surrounding us
