Noontide cordial sun immerse golden spheres 
Birch and aspen leaves rhythmically quake
Susurrate deep in quietness appears
Timidly on soft earth shadow path wake

There, where nesting birds await safely perch,
While conceal sweet are their audible waft.
Cool breeze twine spider's web and bees...Read More

Two Cockatiels

Cockatiels are jungle birds where the air
is thick and humid and lime green 
tree snakes slink along languid branches 

like sinuous vines, and russet orangutangs 
swing with hairy spider arms and legs.
Yet these caged cockatiels know nothing 

of the jungle,...Read More

‘The buck stops right here’ he reflects cowering in the wheat field

Near the stream drenched in cascades that had been so gentle

Bull’s eye straight from the arrow of time presiding over the perch

Night vision in place his hands tremble in...Read More

Craving for Muffins
“Old Chas. has had his chips they say;
his days are nearly numbered now.”
So Harry told us in the pub,
and then he said “Somehow,
I think, we should go and see him,
before he falls off the perch,
‘cause if we don’t then very...Read More

Premium Member Chorus


The flop and flurry
of woozy wings
tromps over hedgerows.
Claws scrabble
feathers flounce.

Here a rowdy cackle
in a coddled coo,
there a hullabaloo
in a ruffled flutter.
Birdsongs pumps up,
balloon into chattering tunes.

Another teaming tussle,
another musical lurch
as sleepy birds
roll off
their nocturnal perch.

I eat to live

I'm in merry making for mind healthy

Three blocks away a church bell from my parish always calls
Pleading for my soul as the statues of Mary hang within the church's walls
I visualize the sculptured faces and count the clapper’s swings
I almost hear my name in the rhythm...Read More

Magpies
Grandpa took his gun

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

An Observation
By: Tom
4-9-2006

The morning was chilled,
and the sun played peek-a-boo through the clouds.

A Cardinal chirped a song from atop it’s perch on a tomato cage, 
signaling to me that all was well at that moment,
Which was all I’ve been promised.

The vigilant seagull
A seagull kept vigil on top of the church
Defiantly braving the threatening sky.
Transfixed and alone, on the sanctified perch
As gargoyles looked on with malevolent eye.

Defiantly braving the threatening sky
His feathers assailed by the blustery gale,
As gargoyles looked on with malevolent...Read More

Memories Snuck Through My Gate
I did a dodgy job of mending
The backyard gate.
Mellow memories still feel like gaping gallows,
They perch like birds do on the fence
And eat all the seasoned grapes.
I thought reminiscing
About tort predecisions
Was an act that had distanced itself
From my street.
But those...Read More

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 16
As they reach the golden gates,
turning, they do face the foe,
the Arlaghs,
they would come with power and might,
too kill,
the ground will shake when they charge,
they shall run hard for their meal,
always hungry is the Arlagh.
Come then forth, to meet your...Read More

The sun plays peek a boo through a mottled sky,
And a Red Hawk circles in it’s lofty search.
Espying no movement in the grass from on high,
It returns from aloft to it’s dead tree perch.

A silvery-black crescent,
upon a black canvas
and this is a moment,
fern and moss don’t abandon.

Nature’s night magic
producing illusion;
it is not dreamscape,
hallucination or delusion.

There are things unseen,
in night’s liquid realm;
feathers well-preened,
soon to perch upon helm.

Herein lay wisdom,
gained from insight;
eyes in ascension,
guard on...Read More
