The Rolling Greens
The rolling Greens seem so serene,
forests pristine in sunlight’s sheen,

tall, rounded peak, a rocky creek,
a red-tail’s beak, rodents he seeks,

an aged elm, rare in this realm,
stands at the helm and overwhelms,

small dairy farm of rustic charm,
blackflies will swarm, cows takes...Read More

Premium Member Bridgett Faerie Leapt From the Flames
Bridgett Faerie leapt from the flames with a pop and a fizzle
Delighting her elemental dad, Hellfire, wielder of the flame
Her mother gave her the power to make leaves dance 
Her purpose not apparent yet, but she was magnificent.

Blue Mountain Holiday
Good memories with my young children,
We were on Christmas holiday together.

We skied the mountain together,
What a good time we had.

These were the early days of skiing,
We were all dressed for the weather.

With our ski clothes on we skied the mountain,
We...Read More

Suddenly Swans
Torn sail blowing in a gale
sand beautifully shifting, dunes flowing 
spray from the edge of a wave
moments camera frozen, seen
snapshots of the mind
memories only you can find

Long-lasting bulls eye ripples grow on the millpond surface 
a momentary jumping fish creation
dissipating,...Read More

Hickenlooper in a Stooper
Hickenlooper in a Stooper

When we saw John Hickenlooper,
Who appeared to be in a stupor;
Should see ski;
Landed on knee;
He also had been a party pooper.

Premium Member Accounting for Taste
Who can account for what we term taste
   and shouldn't it be just an opinion? 
Though then it might be just a tad debased

I Never
I never learned to ride a horse
Or parasail or dive.
I never learned the trick involved
In keeping plants alive.

I never learned to knit or paint
Or tie a scarf or juggle
And calculating time zones
Always seems to be a struggle.

I never learned to...Read More

The Snowman
The snowman stood in silence enjoying the winter chill.
He awoke to observe the beauty seen from atop the hill.
The couple who had come to ski took pleasure in their play.
and, thus, created the snowman who watched them ski away.

He felt...Read More

I'm Offended
I’m offended by ‘ski slope,’
they should be ‘ski inclines,’
they’re insulting Asian people,
have those fools lost their minds?

I’m offender by ‘Black’ Russians,
when made by pale people,
I’m offended by ‘cow’ boys,
for excluding the bulls!

I’m offended by those who will
mock diversity,
the world would...Read More

Premium Member The Dawning Sun
When spring is like the dawning sun
through frosted panes anticipate
the morning after winter's done.

In vernal womb where life's begun
the anxious babes of summer wait
when spring is like the dawning sun.

Another lace of frost is spun,
the doily art, so brief, abates

For my sister, mosquitos, and skiing
My beloved sister, 
people come and go 
Sadly it’s a part of life 
But hold onto those who are there for you

Not ones that are like mosquitos. 
Sticking to you only to suck out your happiness, 
Leaving you with an...Read More

Fall has passed and cold snow has lost its charm
Yet we will not write a sad winter song
So lets rig the sleigh and visit the farm
Down the dirt road where children sing along
with snow angels spread out across the lawn...Read More

Pioneers Without Frontiers
When I was a kid on the bus,
I looked at all that surrounded us,
out the window I always gazed
seeing old fields, half-trees, half-hay,
beyond them rose a forest wall,
maples and pines, stately and tall,
past that rose a line of low hills,
I...Read More

You Could Be The King Of Kindle
You could be the King of Kindle
if you motivate yourself and mingle,
or you can stay sad and you can stay single,
people have the power that's the principal.

Though this skill grows I'm yet to reach the summit,
it'll grow and improve until...Read More

Premium Member Enthusiasm Of Newlyweds

We feel the lift engage, elevating
our gondola high above the valley. 
And as snowflakes tumble from a teal sky
our adventurous ski trip has begun.

The allure of a ski lodge in the Alps
is that it's so profoundly romantic.
For when brisk breezes...Read More

Cold Rain, Ain't That Bad
Outside...

The cold rain is why my old hat
feels plastered upon my head,
and why the street has a gray look,
as if the neighborhood is dead.
It’s why I can see every exhale,
why there is a hard chill on my sin,
which seems to...Read More
