Day of death embarrassment and condiments
To say today has been a strange day would be an understatement. It started off this morning when I went into the den where our eldest cat, Paint, was meowing up a storm. I petted her head a few times...Read More

The Elusive Danny Kruger
Why Danny, so cute, but elusive
Ornamental and yet unobtrusive
Preferring to stay
At the end of the day
In locations a tad more exclusive

Why Danny, you see, while there's cheese
In the pond and the voters to please
You could pop in to town
Take the...Read More

They came and arrested me.
Crime of passion they say.

I shall not go astray 
My paradise garden awaits

A lively rainforest 
Of pelican, scarlet macaw and tucson

The 2nd Most Intelligent Species On Earth

We have had a good run,
peerless under the sun,
sired the likes of Einstein, 
Da Vinci and Beethoven,
though such genius is lost
on the bear and the pelican. 

But perhaps our greatest gift 
to this our common home, 
is not the civics...Read More

bird raises its wings
insect in grass stirs to look
and is gobbled up


checking all around 
bird steals remnants of dog food
then flies to the trees


tucking in its wings
pelican dives and misses
fish scatter laughing


soaring in the sky
vulture though hideous looking
gracefulness in flight...Read More

The giraffe
Haughty and fond of herbivorous feasts,
Tends to look down on his wee fellow beasts.

The elephant
Thin outer ears are gargantuan-sized,
Tickling the ivories isn't advised.

The pelican
Genus of water-bird with a long beak,
And in his throat there is food for a week.

she still misses her when she remembers her…

A pelican called Pete,
Whom tuna, would not eat;
Flew down to hot sand,
Some sand crabs to land,
Now Pete has some very blistered feet!

I will not partake of your Pelican Soup,
Not even a drop or a very small scoop.
This culinary dish is quite absurd,
A consommé of a large billed bird.

Premium Member THE OLD PELICAN OF SUNNY ISLES
The old pelican
Is perched atop
A railing at the end
Of Sunny Isles pier,

His wings
Spread, his body teetering
In a salty breeze
As if in mid-flight,

Stationary
But with all the motion
Of the universe
Rushing about him

Like a propeller
Whirling
And steering
In the currents of the sea,

Yet absent a...Read More
