Devouring dusty dragonflies,
Exposing eyeballs by a log,
Floating 'neath sublime summer skies.

Blackbird is dead.
Yes.  That is what I said.
The woods are still.  The sun is red.
Cherries near his little head.

Dark is coming.  Nanette weeps!
The wind shivers.  Nightowl peeps.
Gone the robin's trills and cheeps.
The song is ended. ...Read More

“Grandpa when are you ‘gunna’ turn into a frog?”

A Little Boy is
	Jelly on his face
	Dirt under his nails
	A patch on his knee
	String trailing from 
	One pocket and
	A frog in the other

A little boy is 
	A bag of marbles in	
	His right hand and
	Licorice in the left

He’s a cowboy today
	And...Read More

When We Pray
Jesus taught us to pray, "Deliver us from evil".  We are often confronted
With a choice of evils in which we do not have the luxury of ignoring but
Rather a challenge to engage both the secular and Christian culture. ...Read More

I thought the landscape burst in sudden flame
with embers wild cavorting in the glare
of dawning sun, but boundless sparks became
a throng of monarchs flitting through the air

above a field as though on charcoal ash

A World Full of Smiles
When storm clouds roll in
Raining down on your parade
Just shake it off like a shaggy dog
Don't sit like a frog on a log
Lift your head up high to Mister Storm
Drive him away with your glowing smile.

It’s okay 
To close your eyes
To fall asleep 
To breath in deep

If inferno heat
Shall sway the wind
Or kill the flame 
May it boldly show itself 

A frog upon a log
Or a lily pad
An embroidered cushioning 
A round , flat...Read More

super duper
they put us
side by side

turning our

but we each
have different

pose in stance
atop our music

merry go round
as if to dance

Puttin' on the

Avoiding risk

and assertively, but not overbearingly, water
resilient opportunities.

is not ever the best way to build
resilient ecofeminist cooperative opportunities.

It may too often be exclaimed,
"The best offense

Sitting On A Log
Sitting on a log
Where we didn't find the frog,
The frog that wouldn't bound;
so wasn't there to make a sound.
Exhibitting its mound.

It would have been a song,
resolving of known wrong.
But it was there, in what was near
unknown to us a clear.

Incomplete metamorphosis of this stilled adolescent
Incomplete metamorphosis of this stilled adolescent...
petrified, sheltered, and mortally wounded prepubescent

I consider myself
analogously buttressed, cocooned,
garrisoned, hardened, insulated,
where cell baited jumping frog

now no divine providential

yours truly metaphorically locked
within invisible iron bound cage

But apparently the cats and birds and frogs weren’t happy.

Premium Member The Patience Of A Frog

Across the pond float lily pads
Upon one sat a frog,
He looked rather startled
His eyes were wide agog.

Had he seen a stalking heron,
Was he scared to move, thought I
Then to my surprise, his tongue shot out
And caught a passing fly.

That wise...Read More
