JUST LIKE A FLAMINGO

Just like a flamingo; I am coming up pink
Far too many brine shrimps; I doth think

But: do I want to be a just overcast grey
Lost in the background; on a red hot day

No: I am pink and,...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

~

Cotton candy swirls
on a pink flamingo sky
Late December wishes
that are slowly floating by
Apricot horizons
glowing softly ‘cross the hill
Twilight born emotions
falling on this night so still
Sweet seductive touches
to caress my quivered skin
Satin slipper kisses
moist along my lips again
Silhouettes in moonlight

Premium Member Pink Flamingo on My Lawn
A flamingo on the lawn? Oh, yes!
With its s-shaped head so pretty.
Make fun if you think you must.
Fill yourself with giggles
At your house, not mine.
Flamingoes have
Feelings too
Pinkish

Whose flamingo is that? I think I know.
Its owner is quite happy though.
Full of joy like a vivid rainbow,
I watch him laugh. I cry hello.

In the view out my window
Nature moves languid across time
Creates a twitch of beautiful info
I corral my pen as I contemplate a chime

The clouds wave mysteriously fused all about
As mountains wear a fresh water weaved cape
A silhouette of trees in...Read More

Twiggy-legged pink flamingo walks in stride
Spreads wings and flies above ground
Eats shrimp, retains its hue

Premium Member Silent Abyssinian Agapornis
His scarlet head droops
towards his soulless emerald chest.
Perched upon a fruitless branch,
his spiritless eyes stare 
at the emptiness of freedom.

Above, streaks of ruby hints
flow among coral flamingo shades,
as golden streaks swim through
crystallised kaleidoscopic skies -
but he feels no enthusiasm to...Read More

Your beauty is the most  compared to the structure of helix

With that one hook I'm gazed as the master of cunnings

Spring
Spring 



A sweet whistling breeze 
Sways upon 
A mighty tree 
Bare and dead as it seems
Awakens from a deep sleep


A cool, crisp mist
Trails through the fog
A dreary winter left behind 
Buds open up
And leaves assume their position 

Black gloomy silhouettes...Read More

Rumbling in my mind
The song of Los Lobo:
Ay arriba, y arriba
Por ti sere, por ti sere, 
Trying to get into a Spanish mood
As I gaze at the flamingo dancer,
Dressed in red flaming wide dress.

Hear her castanets, clicking in rhythm
To the...Read More

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes brushed the intricate parquet 

Carmel was swept off her feet to the clanging tunes of Flamencos 

A pink flamingo swapping kisses and castanets high above the floor

Gypsy tattoos on her ankles swirled like...Read More

Pink Flamingos
Can anything be better
then a pair
of plastic pink Flamingos?

necks slinking gracefully
as a swan
glides upon calm waters.

Steel spindles

Suddenly Swans
From the branches lifts a song of violins and resonances.
Voices from the wind are wailing fair lyrics of flora.
Sparrows whistling so truly amongst the mocking birds.
Though what sonnet is said from down below?
Orchestra of fauna.

The Musician and the Poet-

Admired as she sits upon an acquisition

Premium Member I Hear Celtic Harps Singing
I went down to the zoo today,
I watched the pink flamingos cuddle
their lovely long necks swaying
in little loving nuzzles.

Such graceful heartstrings they caressed
my spirit; brought me to a near swoon.
Such passion those two did possess;
were so very much in-tune.

See the stalking of the politician,
I think he's angry at the ammunition.
He finds it hard to see the fly,
Overshadowed by the evil guy.

I think she'd like to eat the whitten.

Alice
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

The Doormouse, and their friends
Finding cakes and labelled bottles
Growing and shrinking at...Read More

What to sacrifice first?
A lawn ornament I never liked.
It looks fantastic in the neighbor's kitchen.

Secondly, I threw out a drum I have not played in forty years.
The neighbors called to let me hear their son beating on it.
