Dear Gran, open your card and smell the dried seaweed, affixed.
Its for you Grandma, to see, feel and sense the beach, now you are too old to travel.
Find the shell and lift it to your ear, to hear the sound...Read More

Pure possibility plays
Among the shorter shelves.
Here can be quickly glanced,
Quite easily, per chance:

Glittering, spinning castles,
With multi-colored shrubs;
Space-suited clowns,
Juggling throwing stars;
A grinning seahorse bobbing
Weightless in thin air;
Alleys winding dark and light,
With neon-green monsters;
Kindly white-haired grandpas,
Speaking distant dialects.

World of Bubbles
have you seen the mermaid beauty
who swims down in the deep blue sea
never any troubles
in her world of bubbles
quite happy fancy and so free

she swims wherever she wishes
with seahorse whale and crayfishes
with sparkling raven hair
that just flows everywhere
chasing the fresh...Read More

Seahorse Of Gems
Seahorse of Gems

I see a Seahorse riding a wave
A body of gems
Sapphires Rubies Emeralds & Pearls 
She rides on her tail 
Such a beautiful swirl
She rides with such grace
A Royalty expression on her face
She owns the waves
A master of the...Read More

Premium Member The Rowboat on the Marsh
I don't need mawkish photographs to see
the drowning rowboat tethered to the dock,
a withered seahorse clinging to debris
as umber water seeps through feeble caulk.

The cord grass will have grown up through the planks
to marry splinters teeming on the pier,
putrescent pillars...Read More

Once I found a camera, swept up
on a beach. I picked seaweed off 
it like strands of hair, unwashed.
A crab’s claw, no body of note,
clasped the shutter as if protector,
a titan from the deep: the memories
caught within secret. The screen...Read More

A seahorse named Irv finally got up the nerve
To ask a starfish named Larry to marry him.
Said Larry, "Sure, swell, and it's high time as well,
Now it's legal in this aquarium.*
But, oh, what I would give if we could live

Premium Member Castaway Memories on Distant Shores
Over the horizon, 
on distant shores
lies my message in a bottle
cast askew on the beach
with other remnant memories
and hopes in tatters scattered
strewn among the drift wood debris
dead soldier memories lying face down
castaway sailor survivor sobs long gone,
in the debris fields...Read More

Premium Member The Fascination of Seahorses
The story of seahorses is as enchanting as can be, 
they’re a sweet little family living under the sea.
They wear skeletons on the outside for all to see.
One thousand eggs the dear daddy underlies
and gives birth to the babies called...Read More

Waves pushed a torrent of power and might.
Against the tiny creature seemingly lost in the night.
With only the moon to navigate her path,
Little seahorse galloped—
	Giddy up—giddy up—
Hungry suitors let her pass, tonight peace without wrath.

Hippocampus—was her genus, a clever equine...Read More

The Seahorse
The Seahorse
He floated among the seaweed, tail curved, belly fat
Watching as a small plankton came closer and closer
It swam strangely moving this way and that
Till it ran into the seahorse and caused him to smolder
“Watch where you’re going, you hit...Read More

My pet seahorse Brenda was blond,
She loved a poor fish in the pond;
He was not aware of this,
And so he took her amiss,
When in his big tummy she spawned.

They started when the need to keep the school together,
as the golden sided fish travelled in their world of water.

Is isn't difficult to imagine riding one of them,
herding the school to keep it from becoming chum.

Just as the West had...Read More

We humans like all creatures to have a purpose, an aim,
From one-celled amoebas to fungi-spore glebas,
They need a good reason to compete in life's game.
Consider cats: They school us in hygiene
Licking their paws and their fur shiny clean.
And how 'bout...Read More

What a memory trickling down my limbic system
Pure deep emotion released from a firing brain

Thick wet suit in cold waters weights on the belt
No load on my shoulders apart...Read More

Premium Member Requiem for a Seahorse
On a sultry, sizzling July day
I swear it happened just this way
In a tidal pool, a lifeless seahorse lay

He’d not galloped to meet his fate
But was caught in a wave’s cruel wake
High tide retreated, closed the gate

Oh, to have seen...Read More

Seahorses on see-saws prance, sashay and dance
   gliding majestically under the sea.
No clip nor clop for this aquatic steed 
   for no legs adorn its knight-in-armour body.
Instead its fins keep these hippocampus poised

The Dolphin and The Seahorse
Mother started her journey home today
where Dad stands, waiting with open arms
in the sunsets meeting of the oceans glare. 

I stood by the shore, the water so clear
waiting for the message the dolphins bring near.
Has she made it; did they...Read More

Beneath the Sea

Through the journey, life arrives
Underwater – start their lives
Stable neither hot nor cold
Soft tiny eggs there to behold

Of such a time, lay vulnerable
For many eggs is tactical
Protection of the animal
Camouflaged with gravel

Frogs and toad, amphibian class
Eggs that float in jelly...Read More
