Premium Member Haven from the Storm
Two young lovers discern from up afar
a night heron in its graceful lithe flight

Something comes along, and pinches. The creep!

The lobster that pinched me is thrown to the skies.

The orient rays through the tree tops
Illuminating the foliage,shades of green
Sieving through the mist, hallowing land.
My mind wakes to an soothing breeze

Meadows crowned by myriad dews
Glittering to welcome the morning sun-
That tickles the hillside limpid stream-
Giggling through the lea to...Read More

No one knew that birds migrated,
many thought they turned to mice,
wintering under leaves and grasses,
underneath the snow and ice.

One spring day someone found a stork
that was wounded and had died
with an arrow in its body,
on a dusty German roadside.

Valentines Day Always Found Me Quiver
Ring with no feather in my cap only envy
at handsome man drakes with bucks,
who could bank on "hot chicks" willingly
aligned in arrow emitting clucks
fluffing their respective tail feathers amidst
loud squawking out quacking

establishing pecking order like ducks,
or any other foxy fowl...Read More

Saw A Stark Stork In New York
Saw A Stark Stork Statue In New York

Remember when we were in New York,
Did see some statue carved out of cork;
Had big doubt;
Wondered about;
Guess what to our surprise was a stork.

B is for Buzzard under my hat,
my brain meaty and raw.
His talons cling like puppet strings.
His rabid teeth chew and gnaw.

Ye old Buzzard, nothing warm,
just a cold sentinel of death.
Not like the life-giving stork —
impervious to the stench of your...Read More

The setting sun is sinking along the mountain,
And the Yellow River’s flowing towards the sea.

Please keep on climbing up a higher storey.

Premium Member I Stand Here in Awe
I stand here on the viewing deck,
 marveling as they splash,
 these birds of prey, creatures at play.

Where bacon does not come from pork

The Stork
I like to visit the wind
That crack between pane and outside
Where wind slithers in to lick my heat
Standing in the wind
As i contort around it
The deepest scars hidden by the lies
But the wind my soothing balm
carries hope but never drops...Read More

Deadbeat Side
O Aphrodite,
Grecian fertility goddess
Matriarch idol of the womb,
your wise children love not reproducing

heard in the echo chambers
of the caverns along the Aegean sea

Dwindling cries, dashed on the rocks
in luxurious maternity wards,
are slowly dying 
The first joyous tear...Read More

Howard the mallard
A handsome young duck
Flew into a tree
Got his quacker stuck

Try as he might
He couldn't break free
His quacks for help
Were muffled you see

He flapped his wings
And thrashed his feet
A blackbird came by
With a worm in his beak

Poets of a New Dawn

Taking a long ink dip in a desert pond,
rejected drake words
ripple echoes in the wilderness: Tread with care!
Dreadnought thoughts silicate crystalized,
glass menagerie opens to a darkening sky
Wing-tipped metal muse raised to the foreboding air,
infusing liquid lightning to the bard birds

There once was a newborn named Maxi,

Who forewent a stork for a taxi,

But as he could not yet walk,

And bubble-babbling was his talk,

Driver gave him to a new mama in the Back Seat.

A trip to the bird sanctuary
In the midst of grass land,
there lie some cute white band.
They fly round here and there,
White cranes grin with their pair

Glimpse of black birds greet me.
"New Birds"?Face shines with glee.
"No...We are your old friends"
Crows cried, ours will not end!
