'The storms are raging on the rollin' sea, and on the highway of regret'


It was surfers' paradise weather but he had only captured a dinghy

Made from lost dreams and drift wood collected in seasons of love

No shoreline in sight he...Read More

A WISH FOR ALL FISH

Washed up on shores around the world
Already dead, a whale, a dolphin a shark, 
All marine life is suffering, the situation
Has become absurd, 
The facts real and stark!
My Fairy God mother in my poem
Yes about a...Read More

Nectar flows from scent of tender embrace

Seeds caress flustered butterfly tattoo

Enchant dolphin piercing with gracious face

Musk settles to whiffs in pheromones’ hue


Lavender perfume saps sandalwood dreams

Engulfs curvaceous lure’s amber delight

Cinnamon flirts with sweet soft wick’s gleam

As nature unfolds true love...Read More

Was imparted to he. A strange bargain indeed; to resist the gods and to please
Satan in his rebellioin from all that was natural, yet also noxious

If she had to cross the rubicon for lack of sorting colours

	A Rubik’s cube remained an unsolved puzzle

If numbers granted her the wish to live another happy day

	Sudoku would refuse transformation from a maze

If chess could move to manifest the...Read More

The dolphin and the monkey
   are very smart, it seems
The languages of man they speak
   their emotions they live-stream

Used to be the parrot

Now viewed as just a copycat

Blue Beauty
The sea is so bright and it illuminates the nostalgic night
It sways and sways to the rhythm of my young heart
The clouds are formulating right before my eyes with might
Raindrops collapse upon the ground from the start

Disconsolate clouds soaks in...Read More

feline problem
Feline problems
 
The pride behind the sofa leaning against a wall
Are new-born puppies their mother tries to
Hide from me as I should care, but I wonder
How to get rid of them, a bucket of water?
 
You can’t see how old...Read More

My Spirit Animal Is A Zoo
Beware the morning tiger
Before his first coffee
  Look out for the afternoon lizard:
  Ectotherm on the sidewalk soaking in other people’s acknowledgement
    On occasion I’m a hummingbird
    Seeking life’s nectar while shying...Read More

The tip of the fur tree sticks out like a sore candle

Barely visible an angel drowns in a pileup of presents 

Fortunately wrappers and cards are bio-degradable

Each allocated their circumspect place for recycling

Ribbons find rest in a manger on top...Read More

A kangaroo in dungarees hops hopefully 
	To win first prize in the Favs contest hot
		On the heels of an enlightening glow worm

Surely life is no competition but the stage lights
	Reverberates all the promising contenders
		Reincarnation oils the wheels of the jury

I am a sprite pixie lost in the vast plain of tomorrow

Plain simple and impish and easy to find in my sorrow

A true spirit I am adrift in a snow storm void of the needle

The heart of a lion 
The soul of a flea
The energy of a gnat
Please do not let this be me

I pick up three items that give me glee
A candy bar wrapper, 
And a playing card with...Read More

Visiting Florida in December
Lit up snowmen on the lawn
In weather warm and sunny;
Dolphin Santa in a sleigh
Flamingo-drawn, so funny!

Christmas decorations change
Depending on location
And likely, there'll be many forms
Of festive celebration.

No matter where you choose to be
As holidays draw nearer,
The universal need for joy

Used as a paperweight for discarded inked upon manuscript pages

When night settled over driftwood on the lonely beach

Caressed forthcoming peace in his sharp ageing mind

He stumbled on a starfish propped on glistening rock

Wetted his appetite for salt sand mud and adventure

The old man needed no torch other than rays...Read More

Her first taste of the water
Was filled with excitement
She moved through liquid
Like dolphin swim delightedly

She swam and swam so long
That we had to call her out
For she’d stayed in the water
Until her skin was contracted

Since she was only two then

Born to die
Because i am born to die

Or just wrapped in a coffin

Will protect the country in every situation

Returning back home can be long

Where do you go when you sleep?
After dozing off, counting sheep.
Another place far, far beyond,
where you can cast a magic wand?

Are you a super hero or king perhaps?
In a world devoid of maps,
where you can swim, dolphin like, 
and walk...Read More
