Margarita
Margarita, fair girl with blue eyes
Come tonight to the hidden spot
When fool moon rises in the sky
To the edge of the watery lot
Where the mysterious willow
Washes her long silky braids 
In warm splashes of water
Reflecting shiny moonlight
I will be there...Read More

Fools gold
All my goldfish,
died today,
Why did they,
have to go away,
Poor little fishy wishy,
please come home,
The tank is empty,
apart from some bones. 

Perhaps tomorrow, 
I’ll buy some more,
Stamp they’re brains,
out on the floor,
Was looking for easy cash,
smelt you down, for rings, 
Turned...Read More

Premium Member ADVENTITIOUS LIFE OF A WALLOWING MAN AND ALL THAT SURROUNDS HIM-
See the wallowing of the man,
I think he's angry at the madman.
He finds it hard to see the girlfriend,
Shadowed over by the crazed gable end.
Who is that waddling near the dog?
In the park, by the pond I think he'd like...Read More

It’s just like when winter comes,
You hide your face from the scorching sun,
You look away from the damage done
Only to find no place to run
Away.
You went chasing monsters
But you only found a man
Clutching at the shadows
Foundations built on sand
And the...Read More

Thankful for days and nights,

Fill us with cheer and happiness.

Pet Fish
My pet fish walks too slow
In fact it does not walk at all
It does not walk on water or walls
It will not skydive or mountain climb
I suspect it of criminal malfeasance
Fishy activity like swimming is suspicious
Open and shut gills prove...Read More

And lots of snacks for pickin’.

Peaches, olives and a plum;
Watermelon, cantaloupe

Fish

A half dozen, small fins…
bought from the pet shop. 
Now swimming free in an ocean,
of rock, plastic flowers, and artsy things…
“All” part of the bigger picture. 

I fed you daily, I feed you still. 
There are less of you, but...Read More

What would you do?
If I held my hand out;
And in my hand;
I would be holding a small smelly trout;
Goldfish dying in the seas;
People eating things that shouldn’t be
And they all pretend that they didn’t see;
My hand out;
I’m just a peasant...Read More

Amber Nights



The streets where I live are soft as rugs,
Lamplights of deep amber light them.
A lone, orange tabby trots on his way,
Nobody yelling to f'ind him.

The stars' eyes peek over sleepy trees.
The moon lights a white cat asleep on the deck.

Conservation Walk
Days of walking in the conservation area,
With relatives and friends.

You would walk along the shores and view the lilies,
They would unfold and smile at you.

Their perfect shape and the green liiy pad,
 You hear the sounds of the environment.

Walking along...Read More

I dreamt of a place where water is free,

Be a shore where water laps constantly,

See others like me and those differently,

Beyond this glass bowl, fades my memory.

Gishs Wish
My goldfish Gish, made a wish
he wished to be a “dishy” fish.
He wanted so to gorgeous be; 
he is more colorful than a flea.

And so, I bought him a tiny mirror
so he could see that he was in error.

There are goldfish swimming in the recesses of my dendrite pool.
They are flashing their tails and being ever so cool.
I am trying to ignore them, thinking they might go away.
Trixie is laughing, for they very much want to play.
