Premium Member Who is Endangered
A grizzly bear? Oh, my, oh, me.
Certain death if one you do see!
Can I outrun or climb a tree?
I’m not as fast with this giant knee.

Endangered species, humans you say?
Misunderstood, I had it the wrong way.
The grizzlies are the ones...Read More

Last Resort
All me life I’ve been a bushman who lived mostly in a city
with dodging cars and sleazy bars and no-one showing pity.
A city is a concrete jungle, divvied by ribbons of tar,
and everyone must watch their back or bear a...Read More

Premium Member The Bulldozer and the Bear
The Sun had risen to greet the day
    and marveled at such a range of wondrous things.
Where below the warmth it brought to bare
    was causing a Thrasher's heart to sing.
But most of all......Read More

Premium Member A Grizzly Bear Paw
A grizzly bear’s paw is wider 
than a woman’s face.
And about the length from base to claw tips
Maybe longer

I had no idea of this until someone
posted a photo of one on social media
The grizzly was alive, but sedated
And if you...Read More

Premium Member Annual Grizzly Bear Ball
A menagerie of puppies
were way too polite
They knocked on the door
With nearly no delight.

Can we use your driveway
For our annual grizzly bear dance?
I said, “Most surely”.
My husband said “Not a chance”.

The menagerie of puppies
gave me a card, and took off
They...Read More

Sometimes I play checkers with a grizzly bear
He always wins I don't care
Red or black I let him choose
And I always make sure that I lose
Once I decided to win a game
He got angry and went insane
Snatched up his board...Read More

A City in the Forest

The breast of this dada heaves
with remorseful painful ache
as if...the insides of my body
into a bajillion pieces break
though anniversary of birth,
I intended to write, but... did rake
akin to hot coals, an overwhelming agony
wrought urgent compulsion to slake

expunging sudden onset, shook...Read More

I have a football star in my family.
She is my granddaughter and she is thirteen.
A girly-girl when she is not playing defense.
A grizzly bear when she is playing on defense.
I will not get to see her play because I work

Aroused with head of hair. O grizzly bear!
Awake! As fangs do sink into my neck.

Or just about anything 
Why not a Preacher?

Travel with me to a nature lover's dream
Denali's grandeur is the unfolding theme
Expansive vistas paint a wondrous scene
Snow covered peaks look quite so pristine.

Morning sun blushes atop gray clouds
Majestic sights gratify excited crowds
Glaciers glow upon a distant mountain range
Mesmerizing hues...Read More

The Whitest Sails Flapping
Harsh are the winters
in North America and one
must drink hot coffee
or chocolate to revive 
himself, not to let his bones
freeze and possibly crack.

By a window frosted with snow,
one sees mountains and vallies,
even an occasional hungry deer,
or a groaling scary grizzly...Read More

Man's Greatest Enemy
Why, the greatest enemy of man is man
for man has subdued everything else
Fear not the tiger, fear the murderer's plan

At times twas jingoism, at times a rancorous desire to do harm
Fear just man's malice...Read More

Granda's Tree House
I'm sitting in the garden
With my small son on my knee
He looks up at me with big brown eyes
And says “Tell me about Granda's tree”

My father planted a tree 
In nineteen forty two
He nurtured it and hadn’t bargained
On just how...Read More

Your Kingdom Come

Weeping echoes no more in the hazy war torn streets.
The churning insides of our beings replaced with inner peace.

Behold the laughter of innocent children frolicking in the plains.
Their parents tranquilly enjoying life with song and dance---no pain.
