Premium Member Sounds Of Waves
Beaches are alive with the sounds of waves 
Crashing down and people sunning getting brown
Picking up using its watery hand to give a cruise to the granular of sand 
It is time for summer warmth and to go forth

Premium Member No Fear of Snakes
I step gingerly into my yard
Avoiding the leaf piles 
For that is where the snakes hide

The ground is frozen solid.
But they are down there.
In their hidey-hole, waiting.

I have a regular garter snake; I fancy she is a she.
She sits at...Read More

Premium Member In Youth, Beauty That Sets Eager Hearts To Flutter
Nor stony tower, nor walls of beaten brass,
Nor airless dungeon, nor strong links of iron,
Can be retentive to the strength of spirit;
But life, being weary of these worldly bars,
Never lacks power to dismiss itself.
Julius Caesar Act 1, Scene 3

George Clooney


Driving west from the beach
it could have been George Clooney
head and shoulders draped 
backwards over a chaise,
napping and sunning at the pool, 
if it weren’t for the bus stop bench 
identifying itself as such with a sign

and the Winn-Dixie cart...Read More

sunning on warm sand beside
elephant snatching
a broom from caretaker’s hand-

Holy
Holy
Rats coming from under my bed;
With the pieces of dried out day old bread;
Near North side poorly holy, holy and poorly 
In the ghetto tho, there’s beatings within;
Vandalism's, burglaries, drug use and gambling;
Everyone fishy, everyone wishing
For the revitalization's…
In the 20’s...Read More

“Sunning in Spring”

Sunning in Spring, but remembering now,
that time, the time,
Hips deep, stuck in snow, 
so down, so cold, so low,

Sunning in Spring, but remembering now, 
that time, the time,
Face wintered, so bitter, so cold
Feeling at best so-so
So-so, not so...Read More

Sunny Sparrow Roost
While whittling away,
Household tasks today,
Sparrows peacefully perched by my window,
Sunning on golden Cyprus, as they will tomorrow.

Betwixt bird feeder flights,
They absorb warmth of sunlight,
Until seed needs lead to silly squabbles,
Luckily the extent of their troubles.

Back and forth the tiny flock...Read More

By her husband as usual an old crock;

So she become best cook on the block.

Walking my land reminds me of why I am here in lieu of other places
It is a magical lilting land where Indian teepees used to reside
An unfettered meadow forest mix with wild strawberries,

My Lily Cat

I miss my dear loving kitty,
You died so young, what a pitty!

I loved to stroke your softest fur, 
To watch you play and hear you purr.

You gave such joy, though unaware
How your sweet spirit helped me bear

The Garden Gnomes
Leafy ferns and little frogs
Toads live in the garden
Weeds and grass and daffodils
And poop...I beg your pardon

Yes poop is in there from the cat
That roams around the houses
Just pick it out or grind it in
It should be full of mouses...Read More

haigai - FREEZING SPRING
flies out sunning
stunning spring weather... cold kills
feed garden wildlife

warm... freezing cold
resilient are daffodils
built-in antifreeze...

koi still not feeding
hiding frog surprises all
a puffed up Robin

northeast... grey clouds race
trees braced ready to refrain
dark sky's stunting growth

lilac... green buds teased
horse-chestnut... brown buds... tacky

He is out sunning;
On him today  what in the world did dawn?

Premium Member That's Some Trick
Bewitched again by autumn's laggard spell
Like alchemy, green leaves are turned to gold
Although the summer still has dreams to sell
I watch fall's silent sorcery unfold

Brisk morning breezes hint of coming cold
Forgotten are the yellow daffodils
The grass is brown where robins...Read More

Wax and Wane
Ever positive, ever growing,
The emotions will keep flowing
The flit of a bird,
The sound that is heard,
The senses rejoice
Joined in one voice
One call, One chorus
heard throughout the forest.
As the summer comes to a close 
Sitting there sunning in repose.
Marveling at life’s...Read More

The Deepest Depths Of Epic Pain

The scars of life unveil the weight of lies,
lest it be the torment of moral sin,
wherein the guiltless suffer wounds and cries
of love’s deceit as heartless notions win.

The evil whims of wicked fancy shows

Carefree and sunning,
Scenery stunning,
Relaxed feeling free,
Kids play in the sea.
Then people are screaming,
Pinch, am I dreaming?
Past me everyone runs, 
I look for my sons.

They are not running,
Nature is cunning,
A tsunami wave,
God! I must run, save
My boys there, all three,
From danger,...Read More
