Spiky hair,
brittle waves,
spiny Anteater,

A kid
growing up
The long tongues
of children
gibe him sharp.

Tumbleweed in the schoolyard.
Can’t tread him down.
Hurts are on the surface
like frozen
alphabet spaghetti.

Thorns and barbs,
jagged Jeers,
quills quietly quivering
the quarry -
face tucked
into his heart.

Premium Member The Hedgehog
This cute little creature trundles along,
He cannot speak, nor sing a song,
He cannot run, for love nor dime,
Nor decipher day from the nighttime.
To labor the point, he can barely see,
He only wishes to be free. 
He asks no money, nor...Read More

Sonnet the Hedgehog spins fearlessly into new verse
Spontaneously, not lackadaisically, no need to rehearse

Hedgehog thoughts
The day seems long
the night longer
in treacle time,

oozing hours 
drip molasses minutes, 
toffee apple sticky seconds. 
The peculator coffee hisses
as I sit reading the newpaper,

the mechanical clock strikes 
midnight in heavy chimes
that drag night, spawning morn
in fevered uncertainty,

the dense jade...Read More

Studying the studying
staring back - heavy shiney black
on the coffin road - I stood in the gods
an imposing carrion crow perched
Johnny Cash of fauna
Studying the studying
piercing dark inquisitive eyes
scanning for a body - to beak hack 

Leaving - his panoramic...Read More

I’m a hedgehog called Nick
With prickles that will prick
Keep away, keep your distance
Warning not to show persistence
But wait, I’m very lonely
And would welcome someone homely
Cuddling on a winters night
Squeezing her so very tight
Nightly dreams increase my plight
Love required will not...Read More

SPIKEY - 6 lines
Spikey is my name as I stretch and yawn on this sunny spring morn
Poking my nose through leaves and debris I sniff the sweet fresh air
Inside my den I hibernate through winter’s cold away from harm, now

During the daytime I can never find you.

Of you and your family I never catch sight.

Garden of life
What more delicate than the singing of the birds as they flutter and stumble,
Sweet as apple crumble
The wren and the robin, heads a bobbin, squabbling over fallen sunflower seed
Each his need
The bigger they are, the harder they fall
Better luck next...Read More

Beneath the garden wood pile I hear sounds of excavation
As a hedgehog starts preparing for his autumn hibernation

My tortoise getting drowsy ready for his autumn sleep
Is tunnelling beneath the debris of the garden rubbish heap

Squirrels burying nuts and acorns, planning...Read More

Premium Member Oh Charlie, That Spoiled Doberman
Charley was being obnoxious so I took away his hedgehog,
it’s such a small toy anyways for a big Doberman dog.
A spoiled rotten boy who whined for an hour or so
hoping to get his way and that hedgehog I’d throw.

Sorry if I leave you star shooken

Ice Cream For Dinner
Walk in the kitchen
No food in the fridge

Y'all would have jumped off a bridge

I'm only a beginner
And when I talk about Michele...Read More

Then he twitched his wee nose,
And cried “Look! I’m the cutest thing ever!”...Read More

My Garden - Dawn til Dusk
the buddleia
a diurnal kingdom...
butterfly courts

a coronation
the orb brightest of orange...
painted lady crowned

bees flowerflies wasps
most grateful to their host...
the gardener

nocturnal bats moths
hedgehogs if lucky a fox...
a hidden frog croaks

dusk a blackbird claims
no doubt a choral master...
may bugs abundant

Gone is the cold and despair,
but now, the world better beware -
spring’s broken free! And I swear
it’s quite the rambunctious affair!

Blossoming trees flaunt their fare,
cherry competing with pear,
outspoken daffodils share
their secrets, and bluebells show flair
to a bee, who, entranced in...Read More

Whoa That's frickin' Fast
Faster than a speeding bullet on speed 
shot by a cheetah being chased by methamphetamines
Manufactured by military jet engine teams
With a dash of sound surrounded by energetic light beams.

Whoa, that’s fucking fast
So fast in fact 
that a thousand mathematics professors...Read More
