“I wear the chain I forged in life,” replied the ghost,
“I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on
of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it.”

Mr. Willie At CREATURES NORM AND WILD - A Narrative Poem

One day at a pet shop,
I met a man(named Mr. Willie) selling cockatoo,
For money he wanted to swap,
But I really wanted some cuckoo.

"Got any cuckoo?" asked I.
"For that's how I'll...Read More

The Farmer
Whisper not in my ears 'Iam poor'
shower no charity to speak it louder
make me no tool for you to be known
for my toil will humble your shine.

Allure me not with goodies I care less

     who feathers his journey
rallied by sunshine

Trees and Sparrows

It cocks an eye at me.
I recall, as a boy, I stood
by a window looking at a sparrow
just like this one.
Every feather could be the same,
even the mien and stance
of the bird – the same.
I had never thought of myself
as...Read More

Local History

The elderly 
have died here, in the shade
of this curtained close.

My world is narrowing:
small occurrences,
haunt the moments;
the coming and going
of window shadows,
the number of sparrows
at my sparrow feeder.
The language of significance
grows louder.

The dead are my neighbors,
three, four, six times removed.

A jaunty flutter
leaps from a precipice of air.
An ounce of bliss and fear
fixed upon a needful moment.
Common little sight,
sparrow bright,
sparrow blinking in and out.

Cat in the Sun

Between the sun
and the top of a garden wall,
drapes a marmalade rug,
now momentarily stiff legged
as it stretches.
Sparrow gossip twitches ears,
neck rises,
eyes squint under half-closed lids.
The drowsy head slumps.
Paws dangle
as fluent as light,
as heavy as contentment.

When it is Easter, I must beg
For less attention to the Egg,
If Jesus Christ did rise again,
Is it right to honour the hen?
If it's all about life renewed,
Other cases should be reviewed.
Funny that we choose to eat,
Not fresh eggs as...Read More

Afternoon Doves

I hear you, my little dear singing doves,
You, glaring at me with your soulful eyes,
What are you thinking this late afternoon 
Or what are you selling, what did you buy?

I watched your clan friends with white striped wings,
Nor did...Read More

The Dream of the Butterfly
He dreamed he could fly on gossamer wings,
and understands now why the sparrow sings.
It all seemed so real he never thought twice,
that a joy like that would come with a price.

He thought to himself I'm living the dream,
but what are...Read More

I Saved A Sparrow
I have had a close eye to eye encounter with a squirrel in my yard.
A neighborly cat gave me a greater respect and appreciation for all cats.

Cat Memories

You know how a cat is?  The way it
opens its eyes, not seeing anything
but looking into spry muscle and bone.
How it blinks slowly---so slow,
eyelids washing the mind
of anything but satisfaction.
It arches its back 
& stretches its legs out -

Groundhog Autumn
Gorse rusts, brush burns its colors.
Time and it’s bustling creatures
curls now into pockets and vestibules.
Leaf doors open releasing sky to fall 
as they flame.

Hawk-watching crows gather in drifts;
see-through hedges appear, yet twigs
are still olive and whittled raw.
Hawks fly beyond the...Read More

Your thorn brought in the world
Hidden inside a cocoon,
color wouldn't breach in
all I saw were the shades
the world made on the walls.

Curious you shook the whole,
as a child would Christmas morn,
a muffled dead echo was all,
but got you to kiss my skin.

Your pointy curved thorn

A tattooed body of roses
A taste of honey in a cherry pie
An alibi

A path to no man's land
A world of dark passion
A world of great deception

It is not a caution
It stands in a narrow format

A hollow tree

A bleeding sparrow

Sour Milk

We all feared her
the kind of fear that tastes
of curdled milk

A new friend-
Six years old
One step beside me
chattering away
little sparrow

Together we churned
our childhood
as we played kissing games

We could not have known
it was that dark triangle of guilt
that drove the nun...Read More

Hence it begins!
Admixture of utmost sins,
A flower purple and thin,
Iris that is as blue as it's ever been.
Do not decipher nor should you commentate
What is understood among the thoughts,
Shared in silence and candle light,
Sipped from the glass or nibbled in...Read More

Glimpse here
Touch of peace;
Now frames fest


In a crowd
Heart feels lost;
A lonely place


Mood swings
Touch and go;
Odd disease hurls


Limbo stasis
Change confronts;
Jigsaw puzzle piece


Stray sparrow
On broken branch;
Curious rest


Sea breeze 
Stir water ripples;
Sun styles patterns


Coffee cuppa
Espresso moment;
Mindful moment


Last light
Lonely dusk strokes;
Darkness descends

This caged bird had been set free
But before she learned to sing her freedom turned into a battleground
Her unknown enemy sought to gag her before she uttered a single note
At her weakest moments she longed for her familiar bars
