Premium Member Creatures and I
The deer, the fox, the skunk also
Met one day at the watering hole.
Owl and squirrel watched from oak tree.
Raccoon showed up for tea at three.
Butterfly and dragonfly showed up too.
When they got scared, off they flew.
It was like an animal...Read More

Premium Member while driving at night
rabbits leap across
loneliest graveled dirt roads
barely missing tires
~
possum shuffle past
the white lines along the curbs
hopes fill their belly
~
raccoon dart out from
beneath laurels and pine trees
hustling toward hills
~
bear lumber along
awaiting hibernation
along forest trails
~
deer travel quiet
sighing soft in the headlights
through misty night...Read More

Mythos


The summer was lush with death.
It turned the hare into a dervish,
the raccoon to a pantomime villain,
made the mouse sing
in the jaws of predators.
The woods are bare now
trees rattle, 
bird wings also rattle. 
Rattles ring like buoy bells. 

October and...Read More

I am juggling machetes
There are rhinos on my toes
Raccoon and opossum are on the porch
Growling.
My teeth hurt my gums.
I am wishing they were gone.

A Mack Truck has come down my driveway
Or there is thundering outside
I don’t care which.
My toilet is...Read More

Premium Member I Had Lost My Sun
I have to get this right! Old Gus settled.
My first essay without Miss Edward’s help.
For a contest; so it wouldn’t be right.
My feet were mammoth, I tried to collect them.

Old Gus’s ears perked up. He was gone.
Raccoon or opossum maybe.

 The mountains call out to the sun

Blanketed in emerald, azure and amber
Clothing worthy of a king’s wardrobe

Beyond meadow’s grasses, rustled in bits of expectation

I meander the winding pebble path
where the bumbles bounce . . . 
holding back my sorrow and wrath,
for my beloved lay in eternal peace;
among bird songs that never cease.

A place of tears and grief alive with life,
oh, still I feel...Read More

Premium Member History of Kansas in Rhyme
At one time eight different Native America Indian Tribes lived in peace,
In the state of Kansas, sharing buffalo, shared lands with no lease.
The Iowa, Chippewa, Delaware, Kansas, Osage, Pawnee and Kickapoo,
Shared venison, and fresh cool streams with the Wyandotte too.

We had to hop the fence to see this Kansas property better.
Initially got cut up by sharp thorns, stickers and brambles 
Fought our way past giant spider webs, wondering about snakes.
Oak trees surrounding the property encouraged us, so we kept...Read More

Under the Full Moon
Daylight fades
As the pond jumps to life

Under the full moon
The call of the loon
Frogs croaking
Crickets chirping
Busy buzz of the dragonfly
Snake on the hunt
Slithering
Stalking
Flick of the tongue

Under the full moon
The yipping of the coyotes
Raccoon washes
The crayfish he snags
Bass jump
Catfish roll
Blue Heron...Read More

Lobster Rain





A good friend died
I don't know who
A eulogy on the car radio said
"He was a good friend to all"

It begins to rain
On the road a raccoon family
Bodies strewn
According to size and age
The stripes remind me
Of holocaust pajamas

A lobster was killed...Read More

A Raccoon Described
Looking onto the deck
A raccoon was seen
The body was huge
Birds flew away
Squirrels ran off

The claws were long
and looking sharp
Color of the fur grey-brown
The face face black markings
Along both of the eyes
He looks like a bandit...Read More

A Morning Awakens
Awakened by the kiss of dawn
the softness of her morning light
gently nudges the night away

The dew drops twinkle on the lawn
a bird sings sweetly his delight, 
his trilling, courteous and gay

The garden flowers seem to spring
amidst the green they gently...Read More

The raccoon was brazen
Bold, devilishly handsome
I fell in love quickly
I know. Raccoons are no good for opossums
But the heart wants who the heart wants.

He was eating cat food when I arrived

She had a horse laugh. "Just a dumb raccoon," she added.

Leaving my entire hand print on her cheek in pink.
