AI is about to change our lives
Like never before like no other time
Don't think I'm up for it
Too old for this horse
AI is scary, in my books it doesn't rhyme

The Zombies of Zander Ranch, Part I
Sol stared down the empty trail before him,
looking to see what waited in the dim,
the Zander Ranch was the place from the note,
they’d written of evils born beyond hope.

So Sol approached atop his sturdy horse,
wondering if the scourge would break...Read More

When Pigs Fly
Starting from scratch, can we imply
Was there a time when pigs could fly?
There's Mary Poppins, Peter Pan
the Flying Nun and Superman.

Starting off in different ways,
all of these flew without delays.
But tales of Wilbur and Arnold,
Porky or Piglet, none were told

Birthday Poem
Happy Birthday, Tom
Another beautiful year with relatives and friends.

The beautiful wedding at Pioneer village, where Tom and Gail married,
With the horse drawn carriage driving past.

Antje was a flower girl,
Gwen was a bridesmaid.

The exquisite house you purchased,
The blessed event when your...Read More

A death-dance, 
a horse swept away.
Hooves flash and slap
the frothing pitch.
Neck cranked tight,
in the cascading 
Terrible to behold.

A large chunk of tree,
just a large log
branches mimicking
thrashing legs.
Not a real horse in the act
of being swept away.
But terror is real

Little jellyfish was jealous of the fish and the coral
Especially the sea horse ridden by mermaid Laurel
She was by far the prettiest siren in the blue sea
He dared not touch her, but he loved her truly.

Premium Member What Does Hot Mean to Me
What could make me live with fulfillment,
and die a happy man?
Build a bridge with an unbreakable span.
The answer must lie with wanting only one ride.
Not jumping from horse to horse, whichever one
happened to be by my side.
Only through enough time...Read More

Premium Member Let It Blossom
Imagination’s a blossoming flower
straight from the roots of the soul;
like the magic of clouds,
vistas open up to reshape themselves
morphing into colorful dreams.

Dribble a cloud and you will find
your dream riding upon a white horse;
a knight in silver armor
defending childhood’s castles.

On Pendulums And Rocking Horses History Is Made
While racing on the rocking horse of youth
Going nowhere closer to the sun or faster there 
When swinging pendulums from Democrat to Republican 
Age picks up the pace, in speed it keeps us in our place
Remains the same with nothing...Read More

Eight Miles Left
With ten more miles of wire,
my horse wants to turn back

There’s dark clouds over the mountain,
just a small tent in my sack

The fence line sits all busted,
from two bulls that went astray

They both missed being neutered,
last year on roundup day

( For Caren Krutsinger)

The long arm of the law reaches far and wide
If you've done wrong you've no place to hide
Didn't bother my brother, he was quick on the draw 
But I'm his law abiding twin, he's an outlaw.

Premium Member Kansas Winter does not Play
Jack Frost has taken us hostage today
My tootsies are freezing in every which way
When Kansas winter arrives, she does not play.

The sky is dark, not blue, more of a dismal gray.
Dapple horse is hiding in the first unlocked barn bay.

Sunset Ride
Oiled and polished tack
golden coat, white mane
16 hands of raw energy
freshly groomed
chomping at the bit
snorting in anticipation
snow falling lightly
reins firmly in hand 
slow canter across
 snow blanketed  field
steam rising from
my powerful steed
hawks circle overhead
red fox watches
absolute peace...Read More

To comfort all my nightmares away
You see i passed my exams
By counting the wool on sheep
And woke up in another street
With only your face for cover

The Church
I don't really want to cripple the church
I realize that the Pope and the church have problems
Imagine in his position
all the expenses of the church

building maintenance wages
costs of administration
Granted the disciples

used to spend
the tithe on themselves

Sea Lions are funny creatures
I think they are mammals
They have flippers for feet
Not humps like lots of camels

Wouldn't it be funny

And a bunny had a beard

It gets even crazier

Thirteen Fine Thoroughbreds - Tongue-twister
Through the forest tear thirteen fine thoroughbreds
Fraught with tension they flick their fair heads
Thrashing through the thickest thickets fittest first
Thundering from forest for the fields they thirst
Freed from their flight they finish together
Thirteen fine thoroughbreds frolic forever

the Roma tribe
The Roma

I can’t stop thinking of the Roma people
There are many of them in Algarve,
Horse and cart to the annoyance of car drivers.
Horse manure their only pollution.

When a bank goes belly up, you can’t sue them
For misusing your deposit.
