Dire straits necessitated
yours truly to bethink

additionally also ruffled tail feathers

We love to walk in the morning…we know our walk is not complete
unless we walk the way the native Americans did…
as if we’re kissing the Earth with our feet.

At home we walk to the ocean…at our cabin mountain paths we...Read More

Goldfinch
On cleared and cultivated land,
exotic weeds and thistle stand,
whose seed is sought in great demand,
so farmers gain a helping hand.

This alien now does belong;
common is this bird’s distinctive song.
Spring courtship and a breeding throng;
autumn flocks keep bonding strong.

A buffy wash...Read More

Unlike natural humane organisms,
like toad
and squirrel
and goldfinch bodies and brains,

Spiritual humane organisms,
like toad
and squirrel
and goldfinch matters and minds,
remain unchanged
by my perception
reception of them v us
as separate,
even laughably autonomous spirits
rather than One EarthTribe Holonic Laughing Spirit

Of interdependent integrity

Urban seasoning sonnets

If keen a goldfinch knits, loops and entwines
through hawthorn, urgent instinct loosens free. 
It's bright with flash that crimson blaze enshrines;
as summer scorches red, it could be me
when lying prone on beach or under tree,
in pensive mood when I gaze...Read More

On gold-tipped wings
How cheerfully the goldfinch sings
At rest from undulating flight, 
A bar of gold on charcoal wings
And crown of scarlet, black and white.

I love to hear his silvery trill
As tasty teasel seeds he spies.
With long fine beak he takes his fill
Then...Read More

The colorant of dawn, the cardinal sees,
intoning its hues with, “pretty...pretty...pretty.”

As I covet red feathers, in the teaberry tree,
the sunlit chickadee harmonizes, “hey sweetie.”

The woodpecker like a heckler is pining for laughs -
pounding, drumming the marionette for gaffs.

A tufted titmouse...Read More

To lose our songbirds would be so tragic
their sweet tunes hold a special magic.
For nature’s music unburdens the heart 
providing ebbing souls with a jumpstart.

The robin's chirp heralds the melting snow
as the goldfinch serenades the meadow.
And in the spring flocks...Read More

I Saved A Goldfinch
I was trudging home around one o' clock
and on the frosted grass, I spotted
a goldfinch shivering and slowly warbling:
he had strayed from his nest and couldn't find
his way back home, I breathed on him and took
him inside and suddenly he...Read More

Trills
Smouth-tongued  goldfinch birds gently lean on each other

Under reddish blue skies of a summer night

Chills full of melodies and chants them cover 

Feather by feather 


From sunset to dawn, touching heads, they twitter

Watching the full bright moon over them...Read More

Premium Member Collision In Ornithology
Birds are in conflict with man's technology
It's an epic collision for ornithology
To these noble creatures we owe an apology

We hear bird language, we hear their song
Marveling at the music, we mimic along
Birds on earth are four hundred billion strong

Bird Watching
A crow cawing and clawing.
A sparrow darting through the air.
Robins nesting, blue jays resting.
I truly do care.

Watching birds on a warm summer morn,
Remembering the good times, and what she meant,
I know I cannot have her; thus I mourn.

Nature Trail
If eager goldfinch, looping and stitching
Through Hawthorn by urgent instinct driven,
Are a crimson surge; a secretive dash;
When summer scorches, it could be me.

If a dark lake’s troubled surface reflects
The dying sun’s final stony silence...
When time seems frozen in eternity.
As late...Read More

Sunday afternoon
On a bench in the park
Friendly breeze
Moderating September heat.
She been to church
But it was nothing
Except people and practice.
God was almost silent.
Not the same

Big and bold
With the tenors
And she sittin
Across an alto

northern winters harbor harshness
freezing confetti and sun to overpasses 
and bottlecap alleys..
snow angels never warm the backs 
of cinderblock children and gray eyed

toward the equator,
nibble the candied ribbons of warmth
