Premium Member When I go out to speak
When I go out to speak,
I mean to be heard,
giving voice to the spoken word.
I am one of many,
one of the chosen few,
of a distinguished crew.
Poets who answered the call,
Wordsmiths, Storytellers
Versifiers, master mighty mouth
Manipulators and speakers of the truth.

If I were a bird
If I were a bird
A hawk or a jay
I could soar in the endless night
And be kissed by dappled sun in the day

The sea beneath me
Calm as a dove
Then angry and churning
It's salty heart stopped by love

My flock surrounding me

Premium Member Found a Skull the Other Day
I found a skull the other day
Was it human? I think no way.
Twenty-two bones, and all of them say
Come on down, honey, we want to play.

It was a merry skull, truly gay.
Rolling along the South Side Bay
In life he told...Read More

Around bushes, trees and pathways, race two lively squirrels 
Scurrying speedily up and down playing games of tag together
Spreading its shaggy tail one would sit up tall by taking a halt
Prying off caps, happily chomps on healthy delicious acorns

Jumping for joy on winter’s day
Forgetting I need an inhaler
Hoping to glean a healthy way
I refuse to be a wailer.

My Darling in Blue
For Jay Dee, or Teheine.

I remember the first time I saw you:
Dressed all in brown,
Your hair hanging down,
With a bright splatter of blue.

Suffice to say that my days are all grey.
Without you, it seems,
I’ve lost all my dreams
Here at the...Read More

Premium Member Blackbird is Dead

Blackbird is dead.
Yes.  That is what I said.
The woods are still.  The sun is red.
Cherries near his little head.

Dark is coming.  Nanette weeps!
The wind shivers.  Nightowl peeps.
Gone the robin's trills and cheeps.
The song is ended. ...Read More

When I was a teen;

Premium Member Jay's Vineyard
Jay’s vineyard never renamed
growing slowly at first
picking up speed after maturity
unhappily and horribly
Jay never reached it

Cancerous dangers
swirled through the vines
of his young body
taking him quickly
thus the name
Jay’s vineyard

Grandpa Johnson
was never the same
wilted and died
like the grapes
that never made it.

My steady eyes observe a jay
lodge against the fissure of night
To  glide at morn, its rebellious cruise
as plumy wings reach hills and skies, and orbs:
Somehow, I feel each turn of reels
identify with every  jaunt where snowdrops’ plunge

In lovely warmth of sunshine, here I sit.
I view nearby a beautiful blue lake.
Around me many birds of color flit,
and in the breeze, the lush trees' branches shake.

Far in the distance, there is an array
of little boats, each one a...Read More

Poems live beyond every gate
Writing words sometimes just won’t wait
When butterfly wings flutter by
A blue jay chatters his reply
Must write a verse of highest rate

Seeing words would but fascinate
Our friends not know our reasons why

In my meadow surrounded by forest delight, 
there are more cardinals than I can count.
They wait their turn at bird feeders, 
not flying in more than two at a time. A lone blue jay
waits until last to be served. Robins...Read More
