Premium Member the bear and the ballerina
grizzly grazing a meadow
pretending not to notice the dancer
wind shifting-it stands horribly- tall
sniffs the air
pivots nonchalantly
methodically swaggers
appetite enhanced
moment ignited
by the ancient guide 
it charges-bloody eyed
stomping the meadow blossoms
it swats at the dancer
again -again and again
as she flits toward the cliff

No Flies on Me

No Flies on Me

What is it that makes these creatures so hated
With an image in life that’s always berated
Could it be their allure to the dung and decay
Where their babies are born, what more can one say
And after to settle...Read More

I brush for fifteen minutes my kitty,
as she growls, wiggles and struggles and swats;
all I want to do is make her pretty,
I just need to get rid of a few knots.

Oh, all that shedding, moulting and hairballs,
she is very...Read More

To detect a nuance of a sound,
of a voice, quickly learnt if blind,
the nuance of facial expression
aid the sighted, eyes, silent voices,
yet for all that can see, 
there are those who are blind,
metamorphically, blinkered,
a true tale; I'm in a queue,...Read More

I said the fly, "Have the need to pry,
my best point of view is your ceiling.
There I can spot any swats your concealing.
Us flies still can not understand why,
you humans find swatting so appealing?
Have you not wonder why wasps try

Premium Member Bandit's Routine
Every morning, evening and night 
Bandit makes you chase 
him around the house 

He doesn't want to eat his 
food right away
He wants to exercise you first

He runs under the bed
and every time you think you 
have him he runs...Read More

Premium Member My Wild Cat
I have a loving, smart, Bengal wild cat
Many different behaviors he shows
He is strong and very dominant at that
He hates to be told what to do, he knows

So much, that sometimes when I turn around…
He reaches up and swats me...Read More

Premium Member My Lady
small cute
kitty cat
is a lady.
How delicately
she creeps along the bed!
As if to beg my pardon,
she apprehensively proceeds
until, finding the spot she prefers,
she settles, softly purring, on my head.

Premium Member Snakes and Hummingbirds
To love, agapic and/or erotic,
is a positive economic-political relational choice
to trust whomever
and whatever is our Other right now
with open caring empathy,
even when we may feel like withdrawing
into suffering,
repressed concerns of mistrust and dissonance,
because we have faith 
that not only is...Read More

Premium Member senryu series - Broken
reaching for new heights
I climb a step stool --
feline eyes watch

perched up high
cat swats my reaching hand --
a step backwards

a scream resounds --
the floor breaks my fall
and also my wrist

Buzzzzzz!!! Buzzzzzzzz!!! Where is that sneaky stinger?

This damn Bee is gonna make me crazy!

Butterflies and the Sunrise--Anima
Becoming one with this watercolor painting
of butterflies and the sunrise
Stepping out of my bedroom and onto the canvas
Touching baby blue powdered skies

Violet, lilac, orchid majesty
three purple hills across the horizon
And rising just above
Good morning blazing butterscotch sun

Can't believe I'm standing...Read More

I brush my cat for five minutes daily,
But she just wiggles and struggles and swats;
All I want is to enhance her beauty,
All I need is to get rid of those knots.

Oh darn the shedding, mating and hairballs,
She is very angry...Read More

Eye knew it

The dirty fly has compound eyes 
It sees in all directions
A swatter swats it anyway
So much for eye protection

A Beautiful Death
A Beautiful Death

I am embraced by the branches of trees
I am worshiped by nature
I hide from the exhaustion of humanity’s harassment
I am safe from the horrendous appetite of others
Here comes a high-priced counselor hollering...Read More

Darkness Falls
Darkness falls and it is merciless in its swiftness,
the anethetized mind is a place where memories cannot reach.

The debate becomes whether it is better to stay in this
mindless void,
or awaken to the confusion you meet,

Without a Home
Sticky matted hair, 
Sweat from weeks past
Sticks to his face. 
Like so many files he swats at them. 
Shifting through the piles
Human refuge...
Unknown horror and unseen disease
Forgotten for an apple core...
A few cans…
The currency of the street.
His home on wheels...Read More
