Sprawling eagles' wings of freedom glean upon this God blessed land. 

Huckleberries abound upon rich forest tapestry.

Indigo mountains are crowned with crisp doilies. 

Laughing waves clap upon coastal pebbles and sands,

Premium Member A Night to Remember
It can't have been the scallops
Or the rump of Islay lamb,
Washed down with white Rioja
Followed by sweet meringue.
It wasn't the skate au poivre
Or smoked salmon canapes
Nor garlic stuffed green olives
Or the double chocolate glaze.
The ruby red barolo 
Is surely not...Read More

Incalescence of Backyard Chickens in Fiery Sunsets
The bird feet fall upon the grass like autumn leaves, softy, softly
The red sun disk is degraded into blackness again
Cinnamon and orange-yellow chicken feathers each penciled with amber glow
Golden brown breasts tipped with honey drops
Hard feathered luster of yellow wheat...Read More

Salmon steak or fillet
Choose fillet or salmon
Either way I can get it

I enjoy a salmon steak 
Cooking on the barbecue
Or the fillet is tasty to
Either way I enjoy it

For a salad...Read More

Premium Member the smile on your face


A blushing sky this morning
found my mind a different place

Salmon swirls and indigo,
horizons come to trace

The beauty of this autumn dawn,
an evening to replace

Yet still my eyes they only see
the smile on your face

Premium Member And as night descends

And as night descends…    

eclipsing a faintly glowing canopy,

fading salmon swirls
into indigo memories,

sprinkling diamond-like clusters
in constellation patterns,

inviting a chrysanthemum moon
to bloom amid comets pirouetting
upon a milky way dance floor…

I dream of you, 
for you are the only...Read More

October Visitation

A peeking orange smear
Talked to the lad inside his head,
When he was eight and nine months,
On a breezy October twilight in 1960,
As the orange light told him silently,
To go to the river's edge behind the red house,
To go there...Read More

Redding Poem 2
"Sacramento River WordScape"

Heading decidedly south with a fiery mindless turn,
Their cool liquid urgencies reaching to all sides enticing
The bosomy turning earth and its pectoral indecencies,
With an impotent power unknown...Read More

Premium Member And she smiles
Somewhere in the distance
the horizon sleeps my canvas,
dawn comes to me in a dream

While the sun’s early rays
caress her,
widening her sable eyes and she smiles…

Darkness drinks my landscape
in silence as I breathe, staring,

The alarm went off!
I yawned and stretched.
Put on my pink sequined slippers
and streaming pink robe.
Which in my closet, I had fetched.

The abubble appetite of my furry
Stunning, purring calico.
Her soft tones, calling for breakfast,
Oh, so tenderly virtuoso!

The phone rang sweetly,'twas...Read More

Fish Tale

Scales hardened over her skin
a condition called ichthyosis vulgaris

ik-thee-O-sis vul-Ga-ris

fish disease

(the ‘vulgar’ means ordinary
but at its worst
it is far from common).

She bled where the plaques chipped and cracked,
she leaked oils, but could not sweat enough.

She existed on her own sunbaked...Read More

The things we hear, the things we say,
Are often not really meant that way;
For often some will say in jest,
Things that shouldn't be said at best.

Often when people are tired or upset,
They'll fuss and fume and grumble and fret;
And others...Read More
