In summer re I haint getting undressed
In summer re: I haint getting undressed!

Hence donning entire wardrobe,
Saint Nick outfit including,
while trumpeting think spring
argh only about four plus months away
lest some big bird willingly
takes me under their wing
undiscovered since I won't be peaking,
nor quacking duck like

The Ulysses Butterfly
An Incan empire of all conquering yellow flowers

Down the suburban tropical street --

There is a blue butterfly hiding behind every golden mask

The fury of the storms is etched into every gentle wing

The madness of the scorching sun --

Hide from it...Read More

Sheltering the infant saplings underneath,
The same soil where strangling vines sleep
What the forest grows, also reaps

The Rainforest
If God was a hideous orchid
The rainforest would be his shrine
A glittering mechanical green capsule
Of spirals, patterns, sets of organizing energies
A thousand focused sunlight lasers
That lock the souls into cause and effect
Nature is full of patterns
Nature is Satan's church
Once a...Read More

The Flight of White Cockatoos
It's the strange well oiled machinery of a family picnic that seems so arcane to me,

The regal viscosity of a guacamole concoction, the cleverness of cheeses laid out on a turquoise piece of cloth under a tree,

The rich palette of...Read More

We love to make lists,
To describe, name, number.
How can it have value,
If not on my list.
As logger I stand
Before the green forest,
The numbered trees
Are ones to cut.
The forest cut down
Is only to me
Bigger box to live in,
A shiny new car,
The...Read More

The Trees Are Talking
The trees are talking,
She said, as I passed.
We listened in silence
And heard the squeaking,
As trunks rubbed together
High up in the canopy, above our heads.

“Those humans come again
Up the steep trail.
Can’t stay away from what we’ve created. 
This maritime rainforest
Draws them...Read More

Beneath fallen leaves I wait 
Camouflaged with colours and patterns 
With silent slow movements 
My tongue in and out tasting the air
The depths of my eyes bottomless 
My surging urges controlled 
My length untold 

When you are close enough 
And...Read More

Premium Member Autumn Affection
Dawn's diamond dew drops delight
As cooler autumn air descends
Upon the tropical trees in dappled sun
Where wild piglets run, free to forage

Down below the snows of Mauna Kea
Where the rain forests reign supreme,
Where bird songs echo during daylight
And crickets and coqui...Read More

white dream in verdant green
bridal veil in great assail
rising from rainforest steam
as speckled owl wail

white steam in rocky stream
a train of roaring lace
penetrates the verdant scene
falling, falling with such grace

wet, cold moss beneath heat
belonging to a black earth

Mighty Redwoods stand tall, upright and proud,

The Lumberjacks Song instil treeline fears.

The Fire Rages On
The Amazon is burning
Human carelessness the cause
Environmentalists blame policies

From Brazilian government laws.
It will have a tragic impact the
Rainforest is 
Earth's lung

Reducing global emissions,
A habitat for animals and their young.
Globally it's a catastrophe
Each one of us must pray
Satellites show devastation

The Emerald City

Tales of long ago, many a tall story told
When the people spoke so vibrantly bold
Whispers of treasures of emeralds and gold
Hidden away, lost, a kings ransom to behold

Far away, somewhere lost in a dense jungle land

The bird in the cage sits,
and sometimes sings. 
On Sunday he gets let out. 
That is the best day. 
The cat is at church.

Now that 
we’ve processed 
the whales 
on their gurney
and salvaged 
some profit 
from rainforest trees,
maybe it’s 
time we stab 
forks in our ice cream,
turn cones 
of attrition on you & me.

In the lush jungles of constant condensation,

That had ruled from an unknown beginning ,
A caste system, whereby, a legacy of femininity,
Ruled over a vast domain, she'd be the Queen,
Known by one name since the...Read More
