Premium Member Bobbin' Red Robin
Robins wear their hearts upon the breast
In perfect visions of loveliness 
Bobbin' along to their own sweet chirps
In melodious garden concerts.

Robins make themselves permanent guests
In trees to call home and build a nest
Their love a secret of your garden
Secrets certain...Read More

One of my favourite birds is the Robin Redbreast
I see him on my lawn with his bright scarlet chest

A territorial bird, he’ll guard his piece of the land
If another bird ventures in then he will take a stand

When I’m digging...Read More

The Sunrise Song
"I'm very happy being me, although sometimes I'd love to be a bird so
that I could fly." - Joy Fielding

Furrowing the crisp layers of thin air
flies the migratory songbird of charm,
the cheerful Robin on the frilled wings
soars to the fringe...Read More

Sepia-tinted season is on
Sepia-tinted season is on
You are yellow and red
Crunching leaves in the lawn
Soft sun on bed

You are yellow and red
As I pick apples
Soft sun on bed
Squirrels under maples

As I pick apples
In red-and-gold forest
Squirrels under  maples
A Robin in your armrest

In red-and-gold...Read More

Breaking The Mirror
The Robin
flying in
a mirror

I'm trying
to catch

but breaking the mirror!

Happy shouting
Down spouting

Teeth clenching
Arm wrenching
Mean inching
Plain lynching

Day signals bright
Bees pure delight
One two three are right
We turn on the light

Kindergarteners red and blue
Pork belly pigs on notice too
Hot ham hocks for me and you
That’s enough of the Elmer’s glue

The Robin
A bird settles lightly on the bough
Red breast proud and challenging:
Look at me, I am here. I obey, strangely
Perturbed; a hoped for moment yet,
Once arrived, disturbing, full of portents,
Messages I cannot understand.

The Robin sits lightly on the perch, its
Song full...Read More

Premium Member His sweet tune
A robin awakened me cheerily
   as I sat up in bed
Tweeting his sweet tune
   that now plays in my head

And when I retired
   at the end of the day
To the tune of the robin

Old age can wait
Old age can wait

My body, it tells me, slow down you are old,
Don't kick a football, go out in the cold,
Don't splash in puddles, or play in the dirt,
But my mind keeps on saying, one more time it won't hurt,
So...Read More

Premium Member Robin Williams, Sad Comedian at Heart
Robin Williams,
one of Chicago’s native civilians. 
Became the best comedian in the late seventies,
poor man died from depression’s disease.

Known for his “hyper-comedy”,
Hook, Patch Adams and Jumanji-

can be serious,
like Dead Poet’s Society.

Plucked flower once clumsily graced a girl's curls,
Now crushed in the wake of her ascending swirls,
Comfort be gone as bees hold dust for another,
Swarms of butterfly's doth aimlessly hover,

i awake from a cloudy dream of
dark leaf horses running
with wild bronze manes.

i slide open the bedroom drapes
as a sweet design unfolds
as I watch playful birds –

imagining that they are flying
towards an eastern garden-home.

on the black-brown electrical wire
a robin is...Read More

Behold, the essence of aubergine and a trail of sparkles yields the moment to radiant reds, like a breasted robin of autumns abandon legions in crumpled layers, impaled to moisten saffron petals and chartreuse fronds,

Strewn against a capricious path that...Read More

Premium Member Robins Revenge
Hopping for donuts
I landed in wet crumbs. 
I get chocolate frosting on my left shoe.

They throw me a bit of a roll,
Restaurant’s special item. 
I hop to catch it, land on my right wing.

Silly robin! Someone says.
They laugh at me...Read More

Your smile becomes my morning


A lone mist drifts in feathered shadows
where footprints are soft neath a robin egg sky
Hushed sentiments flow on cool morning breezes
as dreams bask in the light of dawn’s shining,
heaven sent beams caressing our skin

The warmth of a new day embraces...Read More

Premium Member Pollyanna is my Go To Plan
I pull out Pollyanna me because it is my go-to-game-plan.
It usually works. Not this time.
I am too happy.
Too upbeat, too enthusiastic.

I tone it down a bit, and try to get to the bottom of things.
Put on my listening face, throwing...Read More

The last one home
The last one home.

I walked along the old canal, watching the fishes play,
Dragged my feet and contemplate, as went along the way, 
Let my mind go wandering, adventures for to see,
Batman, Superman, Robin hood all of those I’d be,
Saying a...Read More

In Mommy's womb a baby grows
A robin lays an egg, we know
She seems devoted to her nest
Which way do you think is the best
It was decided long ago

When baby's born, mom's face does glow
Though nothing on a robin shows
To nurture...Read More

There is a collective revving
of chutzpah and pluck.
The flock takes flight.
One robin jumps late,
takes off alone
behind the bunch.
It struggles to catch up,
then segues in mid-air,
as if to say: ...k it.
The bird lands alone
on a bare branch.
It doesn’t care;
robins are not...Read More

Blue skies glisten,
the morning sun kisses

A Robin announcing
the day

The sweetness of spring,
to all lovers it brings

Renewed wishes
—the fresh promise of May

What The Cardinal Saw In The Clouds
Is that a Robin in the Nimbus, I see
or perhaps a large chickadee?
Why there’s an assembly of foul progeny,
in that gargantuan, puffball sea,
that seem to be mocking me.

Oh, who populates those thunderheads?
I see not one, cardinal of red.
That vaporous curtain,...Read More
