early morning walk
     breathing in salty sea air --
           an egret takes flight.

Flipping the bird
The Cattle Egret is a bird
That chooses to follow the herd
Because it can't find
A girl who is kind
Or a man as good as his word...

Mud Egret

   . . . gray mist whiffs low

Black egret
You had come to take
The half-flower child
Though your plans wilted
Like the petals of her skirt
From a single stroke of her hand...

After Forgetting To Fret
After Forgetting To Fret

Ego is like a flying egret
Foolish and he found regret
Showed off his big wings
Ego to him sadness brings
Run over after forgetting to fret.

CARABAO EGRET
Knee-deep in flowing, verdant grass 
near the creek beside 
the hill,

a black carabao feeds on freedom, 
leisurely roams 
at will.

On its massive back, a delicate, 
white egret 
slow-dances,

the feathers of its slender neck 
the morning breeze 
romances!...

WAO, LANAO DEL SUR


knee-deep in flowing verdant grass,
near the creek beside
the hill,


carabao slowly feeds on freedom,
leisurely roams
at will.


on its massive back, white egret,
so delicately
slow-dances,


the feathers of its slender neck
the morning breeze
romances!...

Premium Member EGRET

Elegant bird of lakes
Enchanting in white plumes;
Egret twirls graceful neck
Exotic its coiled form…
Each winged movement, a glide
Endowed by nature’s art
Embodying beauty!

Time Adrift
Lekeleke Gbamileke
The cries of children
Echo through the hall of time
To the ears of souls grown

A flutter of white wings
Below blue heavenly seas
Raise in observant ones
The romance of nostalgia

The past is past
Yet, a war rages in me,
The urge to scream
The name of the cattle egret

Repentant
R egret, as it fills my eyes,
E ndless, are my laments and cries,
P iercing my skin, forming holes of remorse,
E xtraordinary pain; a huge bulge of force,
N othingness, for void surrounds me,
T errifying breaths echoing around me,
A byss, in which everything fades,
N othing but irrational decisions are made…
T angible guilt,   in which it drenches all my senses.

Feathered Freedom
there, 
cottage of my old, carefree childhood,

softly 
awash in moist morning sunlight,

nestled 
beneath swaying, shiny palm trees;

yonder, 
knee-deep in flowing, verdant grass,

my black 
water buffalo roams at will,

leisurely 
feeds on freedom while on its back

a delicate, 
white egret slow-dances,

its feathers 
the mountain breeze romances!

Amachara
In those days when national service
Conscripted me for a necessary chore
In in the tap root of Amachara
I abode
At dusk, strange hands lacerate my flesh
At dawn, your girls dragged me into drudgery
Today, weights of reminiscent garrison my thoughts
Amachara, are you still the egret that drums in my auditory?
Is your tail longer-than Mbaise?
Perhaps your cousin Ezeleke
Will let me proof the weight of my love for her....

Premium Member The Great White Egret
          The great white egret
       Silhouettes against the sky
It's massive wingspan, outstretched

            With it's spear-like bill
         It skims the water surface
        Searching for a prey to stab
