Premium Member A WISH FOR FISH

Washed up on shores around the world
Already dead, a whale, a dolphin a shark, 
All marine life is suffering, the situation
Has become absurd, 
The facts real and stark!

Deep, cool and magnificent 
Death sleeps quietly

I need the water
And in return it needs me

Premium Member Pilgrimage

When I get to the Redwoods,
I’ll look for her clapboard home
above a sea-lion rookery.
I will seek out
her twelve-year-old Ford truck,
her briny patch of hand-reared garden,
her small surf-riding boat.

She’s native,
she taught me a Klamath-Modoc hunting prayer:

“I want you to know,
that a...Read More

Flippers up
  Flippers down
Wave those flippers 
  All around

Swish your tail
  From side to side
Create a wake
  A water slide

Take a plunge
  Dive down deep
Your body propelled
  As up you leap

Hey, Sea Lion

Best Laid Plans
Left my computer on 
Grabbed the keys off my desk
Packed up the RV
And we headed out West

We grabbed some snacks
Toys, clothes and some cash
turned out the lights, Fed the pets
Shot out the door, dumped the trash

Kids were excited
You could hear...Read More

The sea horse, sea lion, sea elephant
Joined the force for “Ocean’s Most Vigilant”
All claimed they’re watchful creatures
Wise and keen in their ventures
Yet from man’s waste, they weren’t triumphant.

They then vowed to help guard ocean’s beauty 
As sea patrol of good...Read More

Premium Member Appear My Queen At The Pier
As the life of the day nears its last breath,
With a glow of crimson, forewarning its death,
Upon its cresting, the reflection, daunting,
The sea sets free a beauty, haunting
The depths of its treasures of unknown span,
The Queen Of Pearls, secluded from...Read More

Photo Op
With time to kill, I hit the zoo
And mingled with the tourists, who
Took selfies near the sea lion pool,
Behavior I’d not ridicule.

But what I did find quite amusing
And, at first, a bit confusing,
Was the focus of a crowd
Which oohed and...Read More

Two brothers salmon in the deep blue sea
Got the urge one day to seek some revelry.
So off they both went into the early dawn
With naught on their minds but to swim and spawn.

Up the big river with its mouth so...Read More

The Walrus, he is an ugly brute, 
Made entirely out of rubber, 
Lounging on the shore all day, 
Like discarded old whale blubber.
Sea Lion on the other hand, 
Is arguably, I think quite cute, 
Gliding along the beach at...Read More

Beyond The Breakers
To the naked eye all you can see,
is the breakers coming ashore individually,
but as I dive in one of them and start to tread,
my imagination starts to fill me with dread,

Wondering whats lurking out in the ocean,

But, I’m not a very god swimmer and is sceptical
Of water, mermaids and swimming pools.

Sea Lion Woman
Silver women with fragile spines
Lonely during the week, they must be doing something right
The loneliness doesn’t affect them, and they don’t want to scream and shout
Daily feelings of sadness, sometimes are beautiful and sometimes are loud

Zanthalous was one time his name
On the shores where his parents dwelt

Under stormy seas he was swept
Going south even as he slept
Until the icy lands

This sea's fish he came...Read More

Skimpy-wimpy sea lion, too afraid of the wild and hungry cat,
ran the quickest marathon, to crash into an enormous, drowsy elephant!

oh, he liked to play under the gushing, splashing cascade;
