Loyalty and Laughter

We gather together as friends. 
We teach other things, 
and share our lives as one. 

Strangers come 
and take pieces
and parts…
and…
leave worms
and 
bugs.

Not good worms for fishing. 
Not good bugs like ladies or butter…
Just black things that crawl,...Read More

The healer

Do you remember the night when?
The floodlight came on as we sat by the riverside?
You said you loved me and I quickly said ditto,
A joke you didn’t appreciate.
 Mosquitoes flew like silent angles through air
In the mimosa night and...Read More

A Rainbow Memory
When my hollow present blows
The dying embers in the heart grate
A fond childish Cinders glows up

The frozen black memory melts past colours,
A sparkle of rainbow recollections,
As I walk up on our trodden pavement
I saw a slash of sea between houses

Marinated Rabbit Stew
I went fishing with my brother Ron, and a bloke named Tommy Grace.
We had camped along the Tarago where we could fish on Harvey's place.
Ron brought along his rabbit traps; he don't like fishing much you see,
and kept 'yapping' all...Read More

Hast Thou
Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?


“Why Hast thou”?
My unripe hairy-brain makes its claim
to be the image of its Father.

My vision today 
could turn a green leaf brown, 
or scorn itself, seeing only 
the thoughts that feed it.

Forsaken… The melodrama is delicious.

Premium Member Warmth
What but ‘warmth’ speaks of ‘love’ to a child, to the aged,
Warmth all poems convey (that get launched from tome’s heart?)
I pray love gets displayed, found in stranger filled room
That you aren’t fishing for when it leaps (getting caught
In sun’s...Read More

The Lost Traveller
Out in the woods ,
a traveller there stood ,
so alone and thirsty 
with not a bit of food .

I took my hands out 
perhaps so I could reach him .
And with almost no doubt
of what could probably patch him .

So...Read More

Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine,
Disturbing the tranquility below,
Where ripples break the surface of the brine;
Some fishing boats complete the day's tableau.

The noisy gulls dive down towards the sea,

Premium Member You're Mine
Guilty I voiced my plea
Whilst the fishies looked at me
There he stood-pleased and grinning;
Disregard of what was sinning

Guilty I yelled again;
Affirmation for the man
My heart you stole for I stole yours;
Exchange of hearts with distant shores…

The tide rolled in and...Read More

My Wife

She is gone, 
and I thought my life over. 
She would be so mad at me. 
It is not, fair. 

There are things yet to be done. 
I need to go fishing, 
and teach someone…(small)
I need to volunteer to...Read More

I Never Danced the Tango
“I Never Danced The Tango”


I have more than a few
Regrets in life…

I wish I’d loved my children…
Much more,
Much longer,
Much stronger.

I would wish to be
Much wiser,
Much gentler,
Much more compassionate.

I have worked on my failings
With some success, 
And forgave myself
For what I...Read More

Represented by an alpha male who
Is always leading the pack to a greater good
Where they can find food and shelter
With a chance of surviving the forest’s greed
For taking them on a journey to the realms

The party’s going well, the drinks are flowing fast,
When someone saunters over from my long and distant past.
‘Hello’ I say sheepishly, for his name I do not know,
Is it Frank or maybe Steve? I hope it doesn’t show.

Not mans creations
The answer lies in the heart

Searching for a Fishing Pier

We were searching for a fishing pier;
One which had been  nice and near;
Would intend;
Reach the end;
Towards it my boat started to steer.

The Radio


I hear bird like voices in his kitchen.
Imagine gulls nesting on counter-tops.

He's gone to Wisconsin
for the ice-fishing
but his radio plays on.

Sounds are snowing in his apartment,
melting ice puddles slosh.

Today, fish-bubbles surface
on frosted windows.

The radio paddles around -
squawks on.

Ready

A camera, the battery, charger and film…(what is that?)
A flashlight, lighter, matches and something to burn. 
A bag, a flag, a blanket, and comfort to sleep.
A favorite pillow, and bear, “yes you can bring him”. 

The telephone the charger, maybe...Read More

Great day at the beach – a swim and hot sun
Supposed to be a lot of fun.

Yes, the sand was worm and soft
But, noticed everyone had a small cough.

I stepped into the water
With my son and daughter.
