The outdoors
Once, I walked on newly fallen snow
It was sobering,
but then it got cold, and feet froze
enough of sobering.
Thick, woollen socks and boots
I’m not an outdoor man
Traversing the North Pole is not
For me, I’m not a penguin.
 I like...Read More

Funky Penguin

A funky penguin stated,
my tux is stupidly outdated,
I want a look that’s tacky,
gaudy, loud, and whacky.

I look too diplomatic,
in a formal dinner straitjacket.
Black and white is so passé,

I want something glitzy,
to dazzle other penguins dizzy;
something flashy...Read More

Her name was Gwen
and she was a poet

Flamboyant search for a woman who had lost her mind.
Luckily she was outrageous and quite easy to find.
Her rainbow hair and the braided elephant she rode
Were clues easily deciphered, faster than Morse code.

She wore a turquoise hat, with a noisy...Read More

Song for 24

a far-fetched wish but please materialize in my palm

point in me the direction of...Read More

Sweet  Shanana, a golden dog gal,
Is my dogs’ best pal.
Dubbed Shana, in Polish it means “golden hay”,

She’s silly and obliging, letting my feisty dogs get...Read More

All that being said

A load in my nighty causing much hypertension

Oil stains on canvas, 
thumbprints on the frame,

on a string and paper tag.

Sculpture in the corner,

all piled in a random pattern

Proudly the white tummies purposefully sauntered forth
Orange arrow beaks decidedly pointed 
Stubby feet not nearly strong enough to hold them up

Yellow mirrored eyeballs, reflecting the sun
In sheer giddiness, frightening the menfolk.
I stopped the wagon train and gave them a stern...Read More

Two penguin parents and their chick
Are bringing people ‘round
To ogle at their lifestyle
And the happiness they’ve found.

At the airing of this tale
For the parents, Sphen and Magic,
Are both penguins who are male.

Their obvious affection
Led their keepers to decide
