Mother magpies defend their young
When it is the nesting season,
Then they are hard to move among.

When it is the nesting season,
Mother magpies are aggressive,
They cannot comprehend reason.

Mother magpies are aggressive,
Set primed and ready to attack,
They are certainly possessive.

Set primed and...Read More

My Molly Magpie endears to baked delights
Toiling in the afternoon, proving through the night
   Darkness raised the finest flour with courage
   Baked alive transformed, the test of scourge
Transfixed all mollified await the finest bite...Read More

Grandpa took his gun
Out to the field
And I watched as he aimed at the birds
And I asked my father "why?"
And he said "They peck the peaches, they raze the raspberries, they plunder the plums"
And I think, where I a magpie

Hope in Nature
When hope eroded by life's extremes
as life mocks fermenting a wish to die
I let twilight bathe my drooping eyes
and take my heart to nature's scenes. 
Nature flirting in it’s proud green attire
behold the swift squirrel& early magpie
And silky cob webs...Read More

What time is it?
5:00 O’clock. 
That is the answer my son will give, 
Every… time… you… ask…

He knows no other time.

In The Castle
Brilliantly Blue Sky with Wispy Wondering Nebulous Cumulus Clouds
A bench. The scarred magpie 
The dull thud of realisation
Easily mistaken for a heartbeat
And our conversation;
Itself a Venn diagram of times very non linearity
Our elliptical orbit spun me dizzyingly to it's furthest...Read More

Premium Member Death Of A Magpie
in the last evening
the ceiling fan was on running

came to my house a Magpie;
wings of the fan
oh cut its fly

my niece cried
I'm tried

but after a while,
my praying mat got
regrettable blood

Premium Member Over the edge, four flights up

I opened the rusted iron gateway
bound in chain and wire, to find a landing
caked in muddied footprints, scattered about like roaches
Magpie shadows course the rain soaked streets
and puddle patterns reflect temptation as light flickers
from second floor moan filled parlors, painted...Read More

Swooping Season - Australian magpie
When they warble in a gum tree,
graze for grubs amongst the grass,
if you’re walking down a path,
they will always let you pass.

But once there’s spring in the air,
there’s no need for an excuse,
walk into their territory,
hell’s certain to break loose.

“The Fallen”

he sees himself 
in the reflection of cold close 
yet distant shop windows, 
his final journey along the 
Hard Time Road
walking alone, 
unforgiven, no home
for the rest of his natural life 
a million knives 
embedded impeding 
words wrapped around...Read More

Raymond Magpie fell in love with a crow.
When she was around, he was a glow.

Magpie, this jewel of a bird with songs that flicker like a candle.
These notes, the enchantment of a thousand mornings.
we cannot capture its sound- the magic of movement, 
the notes up and down.

Night moon shines bright in the cloudy sky, 
Azure carpet with stars glowing high, 
Twinkling lights sing a sweet lullaby, 
Unending darkness that makes me sigh;
Rollicking and frolicking magpie, 
Enters and says good night by and by.

I’m digging up the garden beds, preparing for the spring,
with a magpie and two blackbirds waiting for anything

Rainbow skies, ocean current withdrew.
Girl's pert swirls, soft unbound hair, where pearls
shelled mollusk would dare to clasp its curls.
Radiance eyes special gentle blue.

Three feet exhilarating handful.
Sweet, inescapable mud stain cheeks;
cuteness with endless hugs, sunshine streaks,
briny wave tears drop flow buckets...Read More

My friend the magpie in the morning sun
Each morning I hear the warbling
As she sits in my tree
She greets the day in happiness
And when I go to water my plants 
She follows me closely 

I fill her bowl with cool water
Next I see her taking a drink...Read More

The magpie
I heard the magpie chortle
On a blue sky sunny day

She must be so pleased
In the Australian native way

Then smiling she looks at me 
And chortles again – will she stay?

Black and white proud you see
Spreads her wings and flies away
