Premium Member Do Bears Torture Other Animals
Do bears torture animals? No.
Do wolves tear you apart before they kill you? No.
It is man who tears the wings off butterflies.
It is child who shoots cats with a Beretta? 

Do alligators eat you alive? Maybe.
But do they torment you...Read More

FIRE
I fled from the clutch of boss
To stay clear of drop-dead day
My head was buzzy, eyes fuzzy
As if stepped on a big stingray.

They call me an angry ghost
A poltergeist of neighborhood
They are very right my wife says
You are too ill-mannered...Read More

STINGRAY

She took you for a ride on the wild side
Taking you through bushels and thorns
You endured the pain of the splinter and shrubs
Swerving through highways and by ways
U-turning to where disaster resides

She played foul
Destroyed all things beautiful
She’s unworthy and incapable...Read More

I can stretch forth my wings and leave life's troubles...Read More

Premium Member From our Deck-Front in December
From
our pink deck with a Jarra  cocktail table-set
We sit awaiting  sunset with an
 ‘Hawaiian absence’ of seagulls
As dusk comes  with violet echoes
across the spotted water,
from the resturaunts
 comes a wine hubbub - table- laughter

Mountains, marshmallowed
in occasional cloud...Read More

I BELIEVE
I hated my payday
Creditors I couldn't pay
The pain I felt was like one of a stingray
O! Lord I pray
This misery can't stay

Please flee
Hear my plea
Look at me
My eyes are bloody
Fly away, misery

My Lord please, lend me a key

Tale Of A Mermaid
Deep down below in the shadowy sea
a solitary mermaid hides herself from the human eye.
She spends her days swimming amongst the majestic whales,
and playing with the friendly dolphins.
Her world is nothing but bright coral reefs
immersed in blue-green aqua waters.

She floats...Read More

Aquatic Rapture
Floundering the frozen shoal an endangered diez,
a sturgeon realizes his family few
and sets upon a journey new.

The sturgeon swims afar the shallow edge of the frozen pond.
The sturgeon swims til his eyes, assault an image swimming by. 

The first silhouette,...Read More

The Soaring Ladybug
Mind 
is a 
teeter-totter
constantly
out weighing
my heart 
from the tip 
of the fulcrum
attempting to
persuade 
as adolescents
sway their 
friends to
drink this
or
smoke that

Feet
increasingly creep
like a ladybug
crawls to the
tip of leaf
ready to soar
towards the verge
of its demise
doing the
stingray shuffle
kicking off 
unfastened dirt

Body

The World Is Changing
The world is changing

And the squirrels are at war	
With the snakes
The acorn fell to the wrong side of the tree
And the snakes say, “The acorn is for me.”

A Ride Down the Thousand Islands III

A Ride Down the Thousand Islands II
A juvenile little blue heron yells for its mate. 
In a quiet manner, you pluck a reluctant leaf from its home.
This is not the world as god meant it to be.
A stingray races at an amazing speed.

Christmas Bay
 Dark clear waters of Christmas Bay
So peaceful it bring naught to say.
A near perfect sky; sunny Texas day

Where the Dolphins play and jump so high.

The Encounter
"Hey, you! C'mere!
Tell me what you're thinkin'."
A boy on the verge of manhood
Stepped over to the woman.
He looked so innocent
In his ragged jeans, white t-shirt,
And black, leather biker jacket.
"What do you mean,
What am I thinking?"
"What's goin' on in your head,...Read More

A Flavour To Remember
On a recent Monday,
at 
an ice cream parlor
I found 
chunky pieces of clay,
in my
olde fashion sundae,
that weighed
like a tonne of bricks.
As I excavated
with my wooden spoon
I found crumbs 
of an asphalt driveway
with a blond toupee
and three tokens
for the New York
Tokyo...Read More
