Yellow orbs regard us
from a gray anvil head as still as stone.
It’s a broken wing rescue.
We keep releasing it, but it comes back.
The ranger looks bemused,
the caged raptor swivels its focus
as if reading sounds.
We took him to a lake...Read More

Majestic Bald Eagles
Majestic Bald Eagles

I pace myself on this dry winter day
alongside my four legged running buddy.
Been cooped up and restless within four walls 
watching the showers fiercely blown by the wind.
It’s been four long days now and the storm has passed.

AtTractions of the urban surfer,
ExHibits at the shored enclaves,
AbIde the faithful their sole journey,
BaSking rays of summer's retreat,

CeLebrities of the day made true,
LuLled breaks in surf even the tide,

May walking the canal
along the toll path, worn by footfall, 
I walk as a water colourist
tracing the canal's hidden track, 

hewn blocks are daubed, 
washed by mildew green 
silver weals etched like faded liver spots
on its pock marked granite face. 

The shore's serrated...Read More

Life Of Avian Deception


Serrated wings spread wide on wandering wind,
it glides smooth in sly trail of swerving sinister way 
in timid sky eyeing the vibrant landscape to find
through the focused hawkeye the unwary prey.

I stretch my arm for his lift but he leaves me in the...Read More

I am not to feel, neither am I to see its coming
Have I fallen asleep since those coming days?
Or perhaps to merely drift through were my passing

However dreamless it became,...Read More

In the luscious blue
There is no guarantee
You know right
From wrong.
Forced to swim through irregularities,
Logic become a mischievous light.
Time swivels while you scramble.
The forward pull,
The hidden Divine chord....Read More

I heard the whispers of the Mantis,
as I prayed, "My lord, please grant us
a moment’s peace from cricket calls
which echo always through these halls."

Said the Mantis: 
Let's thank the maker for my head
which swivels round your evening bed

Research fun gear, on-line or stocked.
Preparation: mixing, matching, dots.

Please, try not to harm the catches we snare;
Eat less of animal flesh;
And, plant lives matter, too....

The praying mantis possesses
two ginormous eyes but
only one ear, did you hear?

Although she seems in prayer,
and perfectly still, she can
lash out and kill at will.

When searching for a mate
with which to copulate,
she picks the brainy one.

That's because when she
bites it...Read More

the splinter
The existence, always swivels on pain.
Steps, and steps again....
We do not know where they lead us,
It's as  the days crumbles,
and we must live with an iron splinter,
wear it, feel it continually.

It makes forget , sometimes

fish tanka

I gaze at a bowl

Where goldfish swivels through moss

Its fine gills aglow---

With such aquatic prowess
As it wiggles restlessly

Along with cadent rhythms of the day,
night crawlers hum like bees around a hive.
Black shadows stretching longer, curve and blend,

A small pile of bone dry leaves lay
nestled, protected between two roots
It was a sorchingly hot sunny day
all the trees desperately needed rain

The land that had been without water
for so long was parched, all around

She is the fish-maiden of the night,
a  temptress that croons to the sky
wading on gills of  fondled thoughts, 
the bearer of one fine shipmate’s doom
coasting on forbidden passion and trance.

On waters’ edge  before the stars pale,
her body...Read More

A City Night-View

Marvel at that prosperity.
Rejoice in it's majestic fabrication. 
Your mind never felt so good.
Forgotten methodical happenings.

Reading my genetics and dancing with pandas.

Listen to Nature at Night
How delightful is the softest sound of a clear and starry summer's night,
You may hear a moth bashing up against a cottage window pane near a lamp,
If you listen really hard you can hear him amongst the many garden leaves,

As riverbank swivels
on deepened water floor
with ripples of fine air
its movement quivering… 
like tidal sways, the route
a junction, long mile.

Finding restfulness
that cuddles heaved turns
to soak every wend
moist with finesse… she
glides in rhapsody.

Sea gracing hours
across bright lune,
her flesh of tones
imbues quiet.

Then...Read More
