I ventured out one day to bird watch in the woods
I saw a new path to take near the tree where I stood
I walked for several miles and could smell fragrant flowers
Not sure how far I have gone but I’ve...Read More

Ante Bellum
In this rainy coldness of a night
I am drained and dry like a hanging Bacalao.
I hope it comes to pass!
As cant as I am - broken as a rib
As grey as ash is - as dim as an ar$e
Take without...Read More

The Great White Egret

For days now it comes to these mud flats 
when August mornings are hot and hazy
and the tide has returned with its supply
of small fish and nutrients. 

Suddenly it appears like a fluttering 
white flame, alights, folds its wings, 
and...Read More

no bands formed, no marshal led
this was a unique parade for birds instead
all dressed up in their colorful wardrobe
proudly representing their native abode

the great snowy egret so staunch and prim
was calling the flocks that were sauntering but trim
banners were waving...Read More

Valentines Day Always Found Me Quiver
Ring with no feather in my cap only envy
at handsome man drakes with bucks,
who could bank on "hot chicks" willingly
aligned in arrow emitting clucks
fluffing their respective tail feathers amidst
loud squawking out quacking

establishing pecking order like ducks,
or any other foxy fowl...Read More

She was a beautiful woman…his friend…her heart…simple and pure

Wake Up

In singing the destiny humankind deserves
Betraying secrets to the egregious egret whose stakeholder
In his demented demeanour reserves  

The right to plan, design and manufacture weapons of mass destruction
Whose reach and...Read More

A soft glow reflects off a myriad of tiny ripples expanding and overlapping as thousands of minnows swarm beneath the placid surface of the knee-deep salt water.

Questions Bereft of Answers
I ask why I live in a flask
To hide my pride 
To chide and deride every task
Better to stem my indifference tide.

I ask why I feed on crumbs
To lead a life lost in poverty
To bite and fight my own thumbs
When...Read More

From my diary: Nature
Santa Barbara, Summer 2017

I walked on the bluffs above the sea.
Orange poppies bloom in the dunes.
I discovered
the labyrinth:
smooth stones spell the path.
Peaceful pilgrimage.

Walked on the beach and smelled:
Tar from the oil seeps,
coastal sage,
And, of course, the sea.

Hiked in the foothills.
The...Read More

Wonder what joys may we proclaim
Endure love, happiness, peace and freedom

Whether it be through storm, struggle or strife.
Inhibit not your pain; temporally numb 
Limit only nothing 

Partake among the otherwise eluded
Articulating silence
Regret not, revel now—present tense  
Today may you...Read More
