Premium Member But You Have Never Been a Scout

A line of bluebirds 
tittering on a line
swaying on the winds
like comedian pageboys 
having a good time
poop in the peg bucket
words wooden and sharp
fly off with frosty notes
dirt and sherry stains
imprinted on 
Penelope’s clean sheets

The Power of Nature 2
The splashes of the flowing milk and honey
Are the intricate rhythms of nature
As night falls to usher the break of dawn,
Mr. Kingfisher goes fishing by the lake
And Dr. Starling stares all night long at the stars
Whilst Mrs. Woodpecker pecks at...Read More

I sat down by the river bank

And watched the water flow,

The rapids effervescing

Meanders running slow,

Then past the corner of my eye

A flash of colour sped,

The kingfisher in his splendour

Hunts the river bed.

rain brings happy and gloomy together
rain comes rain
rain wets my pain,
wets my dust of gain,
cleans my walking lane,
find I inside a path of sane 

rain comes on empty green fields
cows, calves, goats run away dancing


rain comes and wets nature
dogs, cocks, hens moves on my door...Read More

Frozen to perfect, stiff, fixed and fast, 
Forever replicating exact,
Transparent colours of love and beauty, 
Forever being abstract,

She’s a water kingfisher, with a purple song box, 
Or ocean wave smashing to shore,
Forever being a shimmering dog, 
Or a magnificently powerful...Read More

A touch of the blues


A brooding mood seeks to engulf my soul
But on the cusp of conquest,
Is deflected by memories of nature’s rarest hue...
The sudden glimpse of stunning sapphire in a field of flaxen corn
And soothing balm of lavender’s luxurious scent.
Dragonfly and Kingfisher in...Read More

ABOVE A STREAM
Above a stream not too far; blue light flashed!
Kingfisher zooming, calling, piping, heard! 
Aquamarine, rare sighting, quick, it dashed!
     It returned piping, again... disappeared,
     out of sight still piping!

AUTUMN

THE SUN DOES LIE,

LOW IN THE SKY.

SHORT DAYS, 

SHADOW THE WAYS.

DIFFERENT, FROM MAY'S.      

SEE,

THE SLEEPY BEE.

THE HUM OF HIS WINGS, MADE HEAVY, BY THE CHILL,

WILL,

MAKE HIM SLOTHFUL.

I APPROACH, 

YET HE DOES NOT STIR.

I COULD CRUSH...Read More

The Kingfisher
Blue dulcet, spread out and new
soaring high across a glidden sky
entranced by dire drips of green
singing out another moonlit lullaby

A kingfisher of sorts, so honest and true
wings dipped in search of a sullen you
reaching out to where oceans walk
hearts wait,...Read More

Great Horned Owls
Many many moons ago
leaving the porch
of a south-facing canyon,
I hiked to a place 
where the foothills
narrowed,

Where the asphalt road
ran astride the reservoir lake
into which kingfishers
dived at will,  
and Great Horned owls
hooted at passerby,

And crickets chirped
in the castor bean 
in...Read More

My Landscape Painting

Let me describe my painting,
Of a pastel colour landscape,
A Beautiful British Waterway,
Forming our scene and shape.

Walking by the water’s edge,
Following the towpath trail,
Pace of life serene and slow,
Barges powered, ready to sail. 
 
There’s something about Canals,
Contented people...Read More

I met my Superhero
Today I met my superhero.

The superhero with Blue and Red dress.
He had a diamond on his heart.

As giant as a Dinosaur.

I look at the eagle sat high up in the tree,
I’m envious of all that he can see.
I look at the agapanthus, a brilliant blue
But the most beautiful flower of all is you.

Premium Member Where Red Kite Fly
Walking ancient pathways on high chalk ridges,
Climbing steep sided valleys; sheep cropped slopes
Over rolling hills where the Red Kite fly
And Chalk Blue butterfly flit in sun warmed air.
Settlement names derived from Saxon tongue,
Time matured villages where the Saxon lived.
Treading shaded...Read More

The Trickiest Mistress
Desire is the trickiest mistress
A strange unpredictable beast
Tickled by fancy and circumstance 
Afflicted by famine and feast
A delicate matter to master
An unruly monster to tame
Lightening flash turning wood in to ash
Fickle wind flirting with flame
The shock of a shot in...Read More

MY EYES
My eyes,
you traced the beauty of nature.
The starry sky and inky ocean,
smile of winter in the heavenly garden,
dancing of waterfall on the lap of hill
and kissing of butterfly with lips of lily.
You painted the alluring nature
in the canvas of my...Read More
