Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine 
Circling 'round high for their breakfast hor d'oeuvres 
Filling their cheeks while their baby ted's whine 
Mewing and Keowing for what mother serves

Loner's afloat adrift...Read More

O Almighty river! Where is your home?
Is there no end to your urge to roam?
Endlessly you run like the Witch on the mountain
Who lived in a cavern by the secret fountain

You begin your journey as a stream on the mountain...Read More

I’ve a fly swatter clutched in my hand,
mostly useless. These pests understand
that I wish them all dead.
So the culprits have fled.
They have foiled the great carnage I’d planned.

I have slathered myself with Off spray,
for the Deet keeps mosquitoes away.
Such a...Read More

No one told us about the deer flies who live in 
The marsh
Add life they multiply.
They are waiting to descend in a flash on the 
Daring who are rash
Who have no inside enclosure or any netting to
Make a dash

Premium Member Flyswatter Soup
Fly swatter soup. Yum. Yum.
My palette is smiling. Mm Mm….
A rare delicacy, found only in the Midwest
If you live across the road from a pig farmer.
Best eaten in July, when the flies are biting.
Stomached by only a few. 
Yes, it...Read More

Premium Member How odd are otters
Are otters so odd?
   In Old English
Their name means 'water'
And it really ought to
   As they live near the river or sea

Are otters so odd?
  They sing like canaries
With clear voices
   So happy...Read More

It was nine degrees out all was frozen
Not much better inside for commode water
Icy crystals formed not what we'd chosen 
Shaking at fireplace's front, stood our daughter
On top of the hearth wasn't any better
One thing we didn't need was a...Read More

The cook kissing the maid, will she tell?

The Fly Swatter
There was a man who loved to swat flies. 

Even when landing on his wife's thighs. 

He said. 'Sorry my dear, 

But I don't really care 

They're aiming towards your mince meat pies.'

I, SAID THE FLY

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.

you humans find swatting so appealing?
Have you not wonder why wasps try

Swat
A fly flies in;
You want him out.
That's what a swatter's 
All about.

You hope he lands
Where you can reach.
(Some spots have rules
You should not breach.)

Like on a vase
Or someone's head.
You need a wall
Or door instead.

And then you aim
With what you've got.

What Annoys Me
Comes the first day of spring
and everything is in bloom,
while the bugs start
invading way too soon,

And while living down south
were always making hand motions,
to ward off the flying insects
that give us grievous emotions,

Outdoor eating can be quite a task
not prepared...Read More

Moth Upside Down on the Ceiling
This black moth
flew in the front door
of the living room  
the other night 
and has been up 
on the ceiling
ever since.
It's hanging 
upside down
in the same spot
not moving

like a drone waiting 
for instructions.  
I'm in my recliner

CHILDREN OF LAHORE
(Easter Sunday 2016)


Arms flailing
From
Her
Blue burka,

The woman
Jumps

Like a checkerboard
Piece
Up and over
The white squares

Of bedsheet
       To bedsheet
To bedsheet

Each
Draped
Over a
Red blossom
Bump
Lumped
And soaked on
The gravel dust
Fairground
Floor.

Like a game of peekaboo
Between mother and baby,
The woman
Lifts
A corner of...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

Lord of the Flies
Harassing me for days now
Landing on my eyelid
Nosing up my nostril
Tickling my ankles
