the pike trawls the shallows
motherless ducklings
nestle together

there once was a pike they named peter
who wanted to go see a cedar
but a girl came along
with a fishing hook on
and took the fish home just to meet her...

Lake Notashebun

I can fish on Lake Notashebun 
in September for pike: 'Great Northern.'  
Known as 'Esox lucius,' 
it's so delicious 
breaded and deep fried lakeside; that's heaven....

Premium Member Flirt

Colin the Crayfish has been dishing up the dirt, 
Saying, Little Polly Pike is an outrageous flirt. 
Tim Trout’s going to be her new finned friend,
She hooked him by a rock pool, on the river bend.

There is nothing to overcome the greatest spike
Sometimes we are just the simple dike
Is there anything they can change to dislike
Let's talk about the worst pike

Sneak In To Take A Peak
Sneak In To Take A Peak

Part of the river was  just a creek,
And into America we would sneak;
Pennsylvania Pike,
Where we did like;
We ended up living on Pike's Peak.

Had taken a hike on a pike;
Someone ran over my bike.

Sometimes I have to wonder what would you like
Many times I pretend to be the quiet pike
Do you see how eerie the sky when the lightning strike
Don't we come together for the next trip to hike

Life’s Metaphor Written: By Tom Wright 5/10/04 Time was, when as a road, my future days were cast, Extending far beyond what my mortal eye could see. But time, systematically, has made my pike the past, Now, if viewed, from memory’s rear view it must be.

Premium Member TOOTH AND NAIL

They fight tooth and nail all those who don't like

Behind the scenes are plotting how to strike 

When see someone to excel

Declare war make his life hell

Till he gives up or pierce him with a pike

rocks watching the moon rise
over the banyan grove
in the shadows 
the monkeys fornicate
ears and eyes recording
this singularly unique but ordinary evening
the glowing moon never moves an iota
while it is being watched
the jumping pike
makes a triumphal splash
all motion moves in invisible chains...

Let the sun dance on your bodies
Dream, People, Dream
Let the sun dance on your bodies
A new song comes down the pike 
We'll be ready for it!
Ready for it!
Dream, people, dream 
Love is coming to you 
Listen to our music 
Listen to our music
Let dawn dance
Let dawn dance
We'll find peace
Dream, people, dream...

On Viewing Pike's PeaK
Take a hike, Zebulon Pike
Lofty spires sublimely inspires
Twisted pines, ties that bind
Gnarled roots, leather boots
Boulders cover, birds hover
Desperate schemed, pleasant dreams
Lofty grndeur, glad I'm here
Rusted rock, nature's walk
Talking hawks, gawking flocks
Drink your fill, eternities still

best of times
Steam rising from the lake
excitement in their eyes
off to catch the big one
casting countless tries

checking all our gear
assured everything is right
these were the best of times
rising sun a pure delight

a good tension in the air
sons hoping for a strike
our boat drifting in the water
in search of northern pike...

Form: I do not know?
They are around in many forms.
Human, spiritual alike,
Taken for granted into norms,
Now and then awaiting their strike,
Traveling upon heaven’s pike,
Angels are among us each day.
Though not seen, means nothing, I say.
Upon earth, they guide many souls.
Some that does, some that do not, pray.
Cherubs serve, God’s glorious goal.

I fly up so high
floating in the sky
watching below for my prey
If they knew they'd fear
for them death is near
This is part of natures way

I make my attack
hit the water smack
With my talons grab on tight
The pike in my grip
it will never slip
It is trapped within my might

Trying a form Dr. Ram's explained called an "Alouette"

Daddy Cooks a Tasty Fish
Daddy went out to do some fishing,
And he caught himself a pike.
He put it in a basket,
And brought it home upon his bike.
He threw it in a frying pan,
With a little pad of butter.
Dusted it with salt and pepper,
And we had it for our supper.
Daddy said he couldn't cook,
And yet the pike was rather tasty.
When dear mother cooks the fish,
It turns out rather pasty....

Kangaroo To The Rescue
A young cyclist called Jimmy Pike,
Famous for riding his cross-country bike,
Hit an echidna, his tire went flat,
Stopping his long trek,there he sat,
I think he might have to hitch-hike.

 A kangaroo came jumping strong,
 Paused, then asked, "What is wrong?" 
" A wayward echidna with bad eyesight,
got in the way and stopped my bike,"
Now the pair are bouncing along....

Pack, Peck, or Pike HexSonnetta
I had a house for sale
They asked me to hold it
Right before I sold it
But my house was a whale
That already set sail
And didn’t give a whit

But it thought what the heck
Coz it altered its tack
So I sold it to Pack
But forgot about Peck
Who was up on the deck
Which was on my whale’s back

But those guys I dislike
So I sold it to Pike

For the HexSonnetta contest

Feisty Feline
The grief that you brought to me Is unparalleled to a burning malady Each miniscule reckoned; nimble spur Comrades' perturbed; peeled exterior A visceral feline that's so endeared Suddenly spent and disappeared Lingering with bated breath And keeping the faith To have you back ...come down the pike 08.28.17

Premium Member FEELINGS

Feelings surge,
Fragments emerge;
Odd mad urge,
Swirls now converge

Feelings sad
Fleeting yet mad;
Purge thoughts glad,
Bitter-sad fad.

Feelings spike,
Joy takes a hike;
Harsh pain strikes,
Crashing sharp pike.

Feelings strain,
A moody pain;
Not much gain,
Truth speaks most plain.

Feelings win,
Unheard yet seen;
A sharp pin,
Hurts bleed within.

Premium Member Behead Me Please
Behead me please
I would scream
Put it on a pike
In front of the scarecrow 
To show him
What he has not been able to do
That I can

My relatives would laugh
Thinking I was crazed, and maybe
I would be a bit, but think about how
many years they would talk about me
I would be more of a splash than
so many other flash-in-the-pans
Who are only famous for 
six or eight minutes.

Not yet, fool.
After I am dead!

The Motorcyclist
In the rear view is a big slab rider in
tiger prints on the open road.

Off the pike and down the route, I
see my breath she sees the inside of
a brain bucket lid.

Crispy corn snakes slither between those
bubble gum wheels, I see my breath she
parts the fog with hot drag pipes.

Her gore-tex grips those tasseled ape hangers, in
armor head to toe.

The silence breaks into four-banger parade,
I see my breath she lets off the
binder and flogs up the dawn....

Shoveler Jim
A shoveler duck is Jim
A duckling afraid to swim
He stands on a log
With Lily The Frog
So everyone laughs at him

Gracie Gull says he is dim
Silly I'm not explains Jim
I have a dislike
For Lucius Pike
Just dinner I am to him

Lucius then says to Jim
Sorry I nibbled your limb
It was only in fun
To see a duck run
Forgive me Shoveler Jim

Together the trio swim
Lucius, Gracie and Jim
And stories they tell
Until the church bell
Then happily sing a hymn...
