She Still Sings


Cute Sweety danced within the cage,
my lovebird parrot since long gone.
I remember her curved crimson beak sleek
mounted on slim silky emerald body sheen.

An articulated human speech expert,
she sang songs for me when I asked.
Neck bent, in sharp voice said “thank...Read More

PETS AS BLESSINGS
Among our three dogs of mongrel breed
that mingle well with kittens 
in their jubilant mood
our African birds give us delight
cheering us while in their cage, verily secured.

Through their guarding prowess
our dogs keep us physically protected
while barking unceasingly 
signaling presence of...Read More

Premium Member She Makes Me Smile
Satiny paw pads tap my cheek
and I awake to the tickle of
whiskers upon my nose.
With another morning begun,
a lulling purr produces a giggle
and I open my eyes to my furry friend.

Breakfast is a matter of egg-sharing;
but she prefers a little...Read More

Premium Member Sharing A Golden


The greatest joy in life is sharing a Golden
An unbreakable friendship that is deep as the ocean
An exaggeration you suggest
Maybe you'd fail the test
A Golden is the epitome of a doggie beholden

Buds and Buddies
my fluffy puppy with curly hair
wags the tail on his derriere  
he jumps on my lap in a slapstick scene
licking my face ‘till squeaky clean

Miners Dog
High home summer hill

Straining, sucking, sitting

Staring, stopped and stick-

A pit-prop tight and gripped.

The trees across the valley

Much higher than he can go now.

I pant to reassure him

In time with his withered eyes.

His tongue, tombed gritty green

He’s faithful, though he’s fading

Bones...Read More

Empty Windowsill
Empty Windowsill 

The sun shines through, feel the warmth
But you are gone now
You leave an empty space in our hearts
Never will be filled again

Your company and all your little ways
So dearly missed
Such sorrow we feel, such sadness and dismay
Almost 12...Read More

California Sunrise
I woke up rested this morning
And kinda excited too
Sending out text notifications to
A few friends for a review.
One in particular from so far away
I spoke with at length.
A few hours ahead in time
He spoke to me in the future
As I...Read More

Life's Destiny
Something about this nature calls to me
To set me free
Of this heartbreak I forsee

Inside, something stirrs
Though my destiny still blurs
But what do I prefer?

Should I care for a young one?
Or is that too much to be done?
Though, it seems like...Read More

THE FEMALE ANTELOPE
Long was the run to live
On a May day;
Running in the corners of the living world.
A Female antelope,
Led it's way to a stream nearby
To wet it's broken feet to safety.
Just now had a fight with the mighty.
Running to a safe...Read More

April 27, 2011 Tornado
Alabama in April,

It all happened in the year,

That was your question
"Tornado's came through
With a lot of aggression"

Early morning had strong winds 
That took the power out,
It did a lot...Read More

Yet another dragon, we had to get
And he just had to have a pet.
For whatever reason, he chose a frog;
So we took him to a bog.

He cared for that frog, 
as if it were A beloved dog.

What if Robots become a serious threat
They could think, make decisions, perhaps have sex
The last one was squirrely
Could lead to maternity
They might look like a shiny new Corvette

Premium Member When Mia Bella Reads
There is a tabby fairy
by the name of Mia Bella
she lives among the flowers
and she raises the Chlorella.

By daylight she does garden
but when old Sol beds down
all the tabbies in the kingdom
will gather in a round.

She’ll read her many stories

Premium Member A Feline Song Upon The Winters Air
Within soft fluff
paw pads impress
gentility of tree,
in moon’s caress.

Iridescence bright
like brother Sun’s,
lends electric air
when twilight’s begun.

Yet soft, thy shine
upon silken fur;
my heart delights 
to moon glow’s birth.

Ye crystal stars
in sapphire skies
your smiling faces
I joyfully espy.

Coyotes in the City
Here’s advice that we’ve received
In case we have a sighting
Of wild coyotes in the park;
The fear has been igniting.

Just raise your arms and stand up tall,
Pretending to be bigger,
For apprehension such behavior
In these beasts may trigger.

Then hopefully they’ll trot away
But...Read More
