I Listen to Door County Sing
I listen to Door County sing
to Death’s door, where waters meet
Green Bay, Lake Michigan and everything,
wonders of the north I greet.
I listen to fathers and their sons
the builders of ships in Sturgeon Bay,
the hulls they build so strong
and the joy...Read More

Dear Door County

Dear Door County

 I sing to your shores
bounded by rolling tides.
I sing to Death’s Door
where Green Bay
and Lake Michigan meet.
I sing to your grief
about sailors lost.
I sing to the ships your sons
make in Sturgeon Bay.
I sing to the canal
where you...Read More

Repeats Of History
Former British colonies on the news
there's people, there's power and there's abuse,
scenes in India seem eerily familiar
as authority beats up those inferior
those sticks and shields shown in a past era
locals beating up local people 
were the British really evil

Corrupt Potty Juice People
If there were persons I'd like too punch
Corbyn, that Labour bunch
I clench my fist and crunch
when I hear those lousy blunts

Jo Swinson and Lib Dems
psychological degenerates
backward thinking symptoms 
in their no chance candidates

With ancient mysteries you come
In your full light, hearts you do strum
Amid rituals some succumb
To your heartbeat played on a drum
Your names do change meanings for some
January wolf howls a thrum
Eerily call family hum
Never knowing where you come from
February called...Read More

Me and God Are Related

There must be way  this can be translated;
May have waited for a while and hesitated;
Did take chance;
Knew in advance,
You can consider God and I closely related.

Poor, poor fisherman, Jim Proctor
A flying carp sent him to the doctor
He was out sturgeon fishin'
Now his left eye's hurtin'
When his wife first saw it, it shocked her

I've got a dish of killifish
I wish to eat that silly fish
Baked, or fried in peanut oil
Roasted, dried, or let to boil.

Make me a star-gazy pie
Take me to the Catfish Fry
Lead me to the China Sea
Feed me hermit crabs and...Read More

Amongst the purple heather
But what we always have to do

reddish sultry haze
full sturgeon moon

Grebe Lodge Shout-out
(A little poem written at a research station)

Adventurous cottagers challenge blue waters
They feel as homely as the gulls screaming ‘mine!’
With white sails they traverse the great blue horizon
Expanses of Canadian beauty – a shrine.

The waves they come crashing on limestone...Read More

The Scottish Referendum
I am disappointed in the referendum, 
The English are still friends; 
Wallace fought for human rights, 
And to live within our ends. 

All people are of equal worth, 
But nationality means self-government, 
Of poverty, healthcare, criminality, and education, 
So that...Read More

August Moon
Sleeping through a sturgeon moon:
Plump with caviar roe, green like corn,
swollen with grain, full and red burning,
squinting through forest fire,
pigeon-holed by sky and telescope,
barked at by howler monkeys at dusk,
woken by screecher owls at dawn,
navigated on by explorers,
wished upon by...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 S Poem
Silken skies surround
Secure sailing sloop
Skimming Sargasso sea
Seeking salmon, sturgeon,
Shrimp, scallops;
Several savory species.
Suddenly stampeding storm
Surrounded, struck swiftly
Skies striking, slashing,
Savage surly seas.
Skipper sighted shoals,
Slammed, sending seamen
Swaying, scrambling, scurrying.
Swift southerly swells,
Sending struggling schooner
Smashed somewhere sandy shores.
Seamen survived swimming,
Suddenly savage screams,
Strange sensations, sounds
Seldom saw...Read More
