The Dune on the Rock
    where fine grains of time     
gradually slip
revealing footprints
of lost vertebrates:

an archaic 
human being -
red deer, aurochs

and ibex…
crumbling sand

Watching Aldebaran
The sweeping lunar curve
Away, away with you

Going up the stairs
I, amidst brown frogs,
Turn into silver dew drops
The bloody horns
of Taurus
Melting into the jet black sky

Dark fragrant stillness
Incinerates my bones
I am bleeding purple daemones
Like a holy mollusk from Tyre

Wrapped in bull...Read More

The Wild Growing Furze
These are the moments we live for.

The shake and stir of the wild growing furze, 
Red kites blazing over high pines, hares sparking beneath,
And hooves striking the shells from the sand. 

The Hill grows blue with afternoon storms, 
Rain passes...Read More

I came from a land of redneck drinkers, who mounted deer heads on walls without sheetrock. It was a simpler time. You shot or hooked what you ate. A wood stove heated the whole house. It ran on bottled propane...Read More

A raging river tenaciously floods
Tannins and silts combine to dark blood

A hut, just fifty metres, occupying their sight
Two men, cold and wearied, stuck for the night 

An adventure all planned, lasting a week
In the middle of nowhere with red deer...Read More

Words--The Heart Of Imagination

A red deer on a misty hill
Stately among the grass
Listens with ears pricked to the shrill
Sounds of earth; musings pass

Dim smoke flitting in a morass
Dance in the mirror of the mountain pool
And music cool
Quivers and dies along the highland, alas!

I was renowned as Chief Buffalo Chips, a great leader of many tribes.
I was given that pathetic name by my father resulting in a heap of gibes.
But with a name like his, Chief Tater Chips, what else could I expect,

Premium Member My Ode To The Netherlands
The iridescent raven perched upon pilings
By just one lake in Friesland's beautiful wetland outings

His golden beak and orange legs with claws set off
Against black feathers that glisten and are a rain runoff

Carefully he watches the Edelhert fawn play
At the edge...Read More

Walk along the leafy paths dappled with shade
turn over a rock or two and watch the scurrying
as little insects scatter looking for some covering
finding it underneath some sticks and a grass blade

Sit quietly and just listen to the song birds...Read More

the dark blue night sky had disappeared .

My Letter to Santa
Dear Santa,

I’m writing to you just like every year
Always been good since the last time
You brought me gifts on your red deer
I left you no milk but some sweet lime
Do forgive me for this funny  mistake
But I’m sure you...Read More

Autumn Day
Darkened skies 
That cloaks the night, slowly fade away
And the melodic songs of birds, are heard
Heralding a bright new day
As the earth begins to feel the warmth
Of a sultry, soft sun’s heat
Morning mists envelop the ground
Like a pure white...Read More

Amongst the oaks and the maples and shrubbery so green
Runs a translucent flow, a stream so pristine
It's meandering contours hugging the land
Takes me back to the day, we met unplanned

The sky was pale blue on this hot summers day

Across the River, West 'tis that 
at the cliffs & clefts of Victoria above
blackish waters slick as Legislation, of Verrazzano
& not-so-merried ferries, the promontory sits of

white Eagles' scat from Lady Liberty!
