     a mallard dabbles
and upends itself to catch
       fish underwater

Premium Member Cats and Rat and Coconut
Cats and rat and coconut.
Dancing off each stomach gut.
I would join them undercut.
They might flitter, fuss and frut.
Inner door not firmly shut?
Glad I am not in their rut.
Cats live dancing in the strut.
Rat ran off and showed his butt.

Premium Member Our Mallard Story
They rarely need a home I begged
So we built our new mallards a little duck pond
In October, we added a little duck house, up the hill, for protection.
Then of course, a dog bed, which they liked.

We were installing a little...Read More

Conservation Walk
Days of walking in the conservation area,
With relatives and friends.

You would walk along the shores and view the lilies,
They would unfold and smile at you.

Their perfect shape and the green liiy pad,
 You hear the sounds of the environment.

Walking along...Read More

The Swaggering Schroon
Paddle down, it’s before noon,
on the winding river Schroon,
still see a sliver of the moon,
hear the maddened cry on loons…

Meandering through forest,
no wind here, the sky’s at rest,
mallard upstream, quite well-dressed,
onwards the canoe I press.

Ahead is a sandy spit,
stop and...Read More

Premium Member Walk in Woods
Walk in woods enriching and serene
Draws gratitude quieting garrulous mind

Tranquil forests of breathtaking peaks
Whisper softly building profound links

Soaring trees of Oaks, Conifers and Ponderosa Pines
Form deep rooted networks in robust mountain brims

Sweet bonding and affection of charming mallard pair
Teaches true...Read More

Premium Member Mallard Duck Pond Sitter
Mama mallard
Shaped like a well-sailored ship
From Columbus' voyage
With a flipped up tweakable tail

Enjoying motherhood
Followed by five ducklings,
Quacking and cavorting
Livening up pond

Feathers shining, 
Proud beak,
Sharp black eyes, 
missing nothing.

Helping ducklings 
Gain confidence they will need
to raise their own ducklings.

Premium Member What The Female Reindeer Said When She Walked Out Of The Woods
I once, went hunting...for mallard ducks 
I got skunked, said- "boy, this really sucks" 
I over heard a reindeer
Say to herself- "I do swear" 
It's the last time, I do that...for two Bucks

Howard the mallard
A handsome young duck
Flew into a tree
Got his quacker stuck

Try as he might
He couldn't break free
His quacks for help
Were muffled you see

He flapped his wings
And thrashed his feet
A blackbird came by
With a worm in his beak

“Sure like to...Read More

Love Is Like A Leaf
Love is like a leaf of green,
Each summer the leaf endures.

The beautiful rippling waters,
And the sound of the songbirds.

The mallard ducks on the pond,
The Canada geese on the shores of the water.

Autumn comes and the leaf turns a beautiful yellow...Read More

Premium Member SHUT THE DUCK UP
Old Pattie just cannot stop talking
Voice grates like a mallard duck squawking
Can't you just be quiet ?
For once you should try it
Her hen pecked husband left walking!

black cheeked... brown...  white tipped feathers

whispers of countless wings
safty in numbers

invites new life to explode
sedges obliging

Poets of a New Dawn

Taking a long ink dip in a desert pond,
rejected drake words
ripple echoes in the wilderness: Tread with care!
Dreadnought thoughts silicate crystalized,
glass menagerie opens to a darkening sky
Wing-tipped metal muse raised to the foreboding air,
infusing liquid lightning to the bard birds

I Wish I Was Duck Hunting

Wishing I could be anywhere but right here,
On a dream bathed with barley and low lined cloud.
Relishing nature's eagerness to endear,
Leaving the busyness and roar of the crowd,
Delighting in vast small grain fields freshly plowed.

Ceasing to care of expectations once...Read More

Sonnet To Spring
How lovely lies this gentle season's face,
upon the fields and plains that fore were cold.
Renewing life for trees and kind with grace,
her sway turns winter scenes to days of gold.

Now she stirs amid mountain peaks on high,
oft melting snow to...Read More

Romancing With Nature
Behold the beauty!
a bliss! a miracle!
deep in azure cloak,stretching end to end,
at far horizon burns an amber ring,
morphing sleeping sapphire sheet in tangerine ;

harbinger of dawn!

birds rise high,dancing in skies
escorting the soothing rays,chained in feathers,
bathing every leaf and petal;

Night walk in the park
Dead of night, only light
from the half moon, casting 
shadows accentuating objects
into horrifying visions within the
mind, gentle breeze wafting north
to south, slight dryness within my
mouth, the smell of smoke
from the villagers chimneys,
courage must be shown

Natures nest
How beautiful the sounds, sights of nature

In the distance alarm call of a cuckoo,

beautiful sound of summer Tanager

Blackbirds hopping around getting in a stew,

Acrobatics of swallows, swifts, Martins,

Crows of the carrion, rooks, jackdaws, Raven

Cooing of turtle doves and wood pigeons,...Read More
