Premium Member Suppertime
A golden eagle soars above the craggy mountain range; his shadow looms darkly.

Unsuspecting prairie dog, walks alone…

Oops!  No more; eagle takes home his supper.

The View
The View

You can see the prairie
from the empty square
that once was a window
Its beauty is a painting
done in a master-artist's hand
Waves of grass twist round
each other when the wind
is too restless to pick a direction
From the rotted timber 
that once...Read More

to be a lush, plush place for me to land ~

Pardon my condor sensitivity,
	but can I be 
dead serious candid with you
Everybody look down on me,
and talk mean about me
But, in the future, they’re gonna need me 
even nuclear more
I’m nature’s finest,
best garbage collector
My critter pals,

WHY IF ITS NOT
Why, do we call it
Something it’s not
If we’re going to name things
Let’s give it, some thought

If it’s called a chilli
Then why is it so hot
And I can say this
A guinea pig, is not

A prairie dog
He only digs holes
But this dog...Read More

Whoosh
The sound that echoed through the day.
Whoosh
The sound that rang through the night.
Whoosh
was the sound as it came passing by
through fields of green in the golden light.

Whoosh
was the sound of the echoes passing by.
Tossing and turning in the silver light.

Upon the falling leaf
There exists a little ant
Falling slowly to the earth
Held within His hand

From a leopard, lemur got away

To live at least another day

Somewhere, in a desert
