If I was a Rocky Mountain Goat
I would wear a furry overcoat.
I would walk rocks
Ignore all clocks
And jump off cliffs onto river boats.

Premium Member The Mountain Goat
Stark against the skyline
On a pinnacle he stands,
Tranquility and peace divine,
In the domain he commands.

Leaping and bounding ever free,
And humbly we try to follow,
When approached he shies timidly,
And runs to the rest in the hollow.

Always proving his superiority
While moving so...Read More

What is A Gift
A gift is something you make with your hands.
A bouquet of flowers, shells from the sand.
Helping our elders in their time of need.
Is truly a wondrous gift indeed.

Quality time in a park or near a stream.
A gift is anything you...Read More

The Ballad of the Internet Troll

Beware ye netizens
of the internet troll
dare not feed it.
just sigh and past it scroll

There dwell within the internet
A vile creature with a rash wreath
Who spews their venom
From between their buck teeth

Up the path,
Not knowing what
I would find up there.
Passing the foothills, then
Stopping to catch my breath,
I gazed upon the mountain itself:
Barren, rugged wind-swept granite.
The pinnacle was somewhere beyond,
Hidden by a crown of feathery rain-clouds.
The path weaved back and forth, mostly...Read More

After the civil war in temples
a wodden god
with broken nose, was walking
with a stick.

Half-way to home
he wanted to turn back
and meet his shadow
in the lake.

A mountain goat climbs
down the rocks to become
a martyr. Leaps into a dark
stream clinging to the...Read More

Inside a log cabin surrounded by trees
Looking out the window next to my desk

This window has a view of a small ridge
Where a mountain goat can sometimes be...Read More

Forever Lies The Snake.(all comments appreciated)
Forever lies the snake, 
The animal with no legs.
Forever runs the hare,
Contenuosly hopping away.

Forever flys the bat
Innocent, yet feared.
Forever swims the swan 
Innocent, but adored.

Forever leaps the mountain goat,
Cunning to live at mountain summits.
Foever lives the tortise, 
An old, beloved...Read More

The pheasants soar at the slightest sound

The mourning dove coos away
Regardless that it’s hunting day.

Unless there is a car near by
Then they decide to take a stand
To prove...Read More
