Uncle Tree
A shrimp pond ahead. Then a carpeted road.
By the roadside mango-jamun-sal 
and coconut trees in line

All these trees, a long time ago, our old grandpa planted
He talks to trees as his offspring. 'Father,' softly they call him. 
'Uncle,' so I...Read More

Premium Member Where cheerful robins dance
Gleefully you and I smile from a scenic window on life
Enchanted by nightfall befriending quixotic autumn sky
Embossing crimson brushstrokes on vermilion arc
Akin to a painting in classical style of renaissance art
Parading in front of our eyes on a thrilling train...Read More

Twiggy-legged pink flamingo walks in stride
Spreads wings and flies above ground
Eats shrimp, retains its hue

A Floating Market on the River
Floating  Market on the River

A Thailand tradition 
Large sun umbrellas 
And boat roofs or hoods
And Asian conical hats
A bucket of cracked brown egg shells 

A grandma quickly whips up 
Egg, oyster and fresh, crisp bean sprout
In rice flour batter

Pabulum

Abstracted eyes study plasmid menus.
A rattle of gleams
stirs coffee in a Montmartre café.
A Cairo belly dancer glistens
in her cocoon of sequined waves,
wine glasses tinkle, while eyes speak.
An old Catalan hotel,
meals shared with a guitar playing moon.
Starry Singapore ferry rides;
we have...Read More

i am and i am not
the silence is louder than usual tonight
(no wonder I’m feeling so numb)

my musings arise as sacrifices into the chasm
where streams and seas shake hands,
the estuary of all life’s secrets—
exhaling shrimp, inhaling sharks

and somewhere else, 
the crickets’ metronome begins to emerge

Premium Member THUNDER MAKES ME FLINCH


I’d like to think
I’m bold and brave
Who am I fooling
I’m not
Never will be!
I’m a wimp
A sissy and a shrimp
I tremble
Like a leaf
At the roar
Of thunder
And run to hide
Under my covers
Till it’s over...
That’s right
It’s true
I’m a wimp
A sissy and a shrimp

How did you grow from a shrimp 
on your first day of Kindergarten,
To now a handsome young man, 
three inches taller than me?
Your Winnie the Pooh phone replaced 
by a baseball bat.
You now standing at second base?
Grandma misses hugging you.
And kissing your sweet,...Read More

Of course,  with smiling fortune cookie!

Bananas

Leaf
six feet long
fingertip to elbow wide
fat red flower
dangling from
bottom of the bunch
we watch as
each petal falls
and when the last one
drops to the ground
Fruit is ready
to pick and ripen
succulent and sweet
razor sharp machete
severs the whole stalk
and tomorrow
another takes its place

Let's go chow down.
Was he serious?
I could barely walk now.

Then I thought of the buffets.
All nine of them.
And the shrimp.
And the lobster.

I could go in my pajamas if I wanted.
So I rolled myself out of my teeny tiny not-so-great room

Premium Member Too Fishy Here
This place smells nasty to me
Any place I’d rather be
Fisherman Wharf, yes, I know.
Fresh everything caught below.

Pungency of fish galore
Smell I truly do abhor
Shrimp tastes too fishy for me.
To Midwest I’d rather be.
