Alice, What's Going On Categories: croquet, adventure, cat, children, fantasy, imagery, imagination, youth, Form: Couplet
Alice, did th' afternoon grow long an' dull;

That's what came before th' fall-
An' no one saw ya...Read More

IF YOU PULL A LONG FACE : Part XXXV
IF you pull a long croquet face
While picking your teeth index and thumb over molar
Canines will drip corrosive acids on knuckles and nails
E'en if you lose anonymous self in a crowded alley
Alice Categories: croquet, books, childhood, symbolism, Form: Verse
I wonder what it was like to be Alice?
Who fell down the rabbit hole
To fall through space, and find a place
Quite different from home
To have tea with the Hatter
The Doormouse, and their friends
Finding cakes and labelled bottles
Growing and shrinking at...Read More
Summer Lacings Categories: croquet, appreciation, autumn, fishing, games, garden, nature, summer, Form: Rubaiyat
Summer’s seasoned lacings, all fetching,
uplift timid heartbeats with etchings.
Sunshine warmly touches me sky brushed.
Languid summer holds playtime sketching.
Touching water’s velvet soft richness,
sensuously tender in thickness,
captivates my deepest of senses.
Water must thrill summer as mistress.
Delight I hold when my garden shines
DIASPORA Categories: croquet, change, Form: Couplet
No refuge here
Just bitter cheer
Search now in vain
Kind words said plain
Cliques and cliches
Odd word croquet
Islands of stress
A savvy mess
Not much for laughs
Broken mad stuff
Loss that now pokes
Sad burden yokes
Once a big tribe
Scattered once ripe
Not much to say
A wind-blown way

It seems like yesterday
It was Valentine’s Day
We met at a café
My hair in disarray
He guessed I was fair play
Capriciously I said no way
Yet saw a certain cachet
So didn’t race away
When the skies turned blue grey
Raincheck for that sundae
We both took...Read More
FOR LAURA Categories: croquet, best friend, friendship, middle school, poetry, tribute, Form: Rhyme
Laura Tonon was her name, at the new school my only true friend per se
Astonishingly she’d taken to me, offered to help with my English every day
Unwavering was her big confident smile, even taught me a bit of Italian astray

You cannot shift a mower with a motionless stance but a stance is not a stanza nor a stem so never put fifteen flowers, blades of grass, and a sweater together in the washing basket. And a shard a second...Read More

Biking through Salt Lake City
Homes of well knit, croquet stature
With Oxford fountains flowing

Tom took a day off for golf to play
His game should have been simpler croquet
Bruised head and scraped knees
His cart like swiss cheese

Ramblers Categories: croquet, fantasy, love, Form: Quatrain
’Tween hither and thither we wended our way
skipping, dancing through sand dunes, in seascape croquet.
While woven in waves watching dolphins at play
I first tasted her lips in the ocean’s wild spray.
Mystic moonbeams, suffusing clouds’ shimmering sails,
unleashed us and whisked us...Read More

The Joys of Spring Categories: croquet, seasons, spring, spring, Form: Verse
Oh do you dream of England,
when Spring is in the air?
The hum of bees on gentle breeze
is all that you will hear,
except for farmers, turning hay,
in meadows far and near;
their spotted, knotted handkerchiefs
tied over thinning hair.
With grass that's green, this...Read More

There’s Father’s Day
There’s Mother’s Day
Why can’t there be Brother’s Day
Maybe in the month of May
Set it up without delay
A Brother’s Day

A brother always gets his way
On Brother’s Day
Where would all his sisters stay?
Why –...Read More
