Cardinal gives a happy chee,
Uplifting you and me
Chir Chir Chri Whee Whee Whee
How much more delightful could she be?

With a titter Hee Hee Hee
Delicacy is the key
Loveliness of chickadee
Rivals the pretty bee

Gliding from the willow tree
Swooping past the sweet pea

I’m perched upon my rock
Up above the full high tide.
The water as calm as I’ve ever seen it
With shades of blue and mirror reflections, 
Stormy dark clouds hanging over the hills 
Across from me on the far shore.

An eery silence...Read More

I looked back – a high silhouette,
then as a ray of light swept over,
I saw - etched and lucid - the raptor

each fine feather flickering in sunlight.
A life defined - a fluid revealing beauty,
a thing only water and fire could...Read More

Autumn Lady
Autumn Lady
Reanna with autumn hair and summer eyes.
Lady from afar here in England.
With such charisma, capturing her image in a blink of your eye.
Imagine that there was only ever one sunrise; that is Reanna's beauty.
As memorable as a waterfall, free...Read More

Corona virus welcome to the UK
Its here the thing we all fear, 
The apocalypse is near,
The devils spurn has risen,
Trapping us in our homes like prisons,

To plague our planet already broken,
Is it retaliating, squeezing our lungs chocking,
Like the black death the plague upon our people,
Swooping,...Read More

Premium Member Murmerations
As thickening dusk
Subdues the tiring day
Flocks of starlings rest
Trilling and chattering in array
Upon tendril branches of trees
High up in the towering eves
As numbers increase
In readiness
Suddenly they alight as one 
The tress now bare as the eves
Of their feather laden leaves
And...Read More

Premium Member Black Caw Crow
Black caw crow flies overhead 
black caw crow cries sounds of dread
birds shiver in covert trees
mice skitter, scatter and flee. 

Watercolor skies abound 
mournful clouds cling to the ground
critters hide ‘neath fans of leaves
silent refuge from the siege. 

Lazy slugs...Read More

Premium Member Cardinal Has a Protector
Red cardinal makes her way to the nest
Swooping down carefully in a soft way
Checking her babies on this brisk new day
Her little birds are simply the best

Blue jay watches from his perch on the tree
As mom makes her way to...Read More

before time invented beauty,

brilliant ballades
her quill filled her parchment as

or a swooping osprey about to capture its prey.

Premium Member Bats My Twin and I
Bats are flying again.
It would not be distressing to me.
But I have a twin.

Bats in the house.
Swooping down on creamed cheese.
My twin screaming in a kind of wheeze.

We used to agree on most everything
But I like my bats. 
They have...Read More

Premium Member Last Year's Nests

I viewed them the spring before – robins in our grass
and swallows flying circles around the front of the house.
Weeks later I spied their nests -
the swallows’ under an eave of our garage
and the robins’ hidden in a cluster

Premium Member Seagulls Sip the Morning Sunshine
Beneath blue, cloudless, endless, blissful line;
briny breeze filled sea along the coastline,
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine
changeful flight swooping from azure confine.

Beneath blue, cloudless, endless, blissful line
dance above ever-changing rippling waves,
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine
up and down floating sails...Read More

Premium Member Giant Dies Also
red ants are dancing
standing on the edge of the elephant's ear

on the carrion
vultures are swooping,
coyotes gulping down it in the watchful care

the elephant dies in unseen
and graves into the hungry stomach of scavengers

Black cat in the window
looking at the world,
lickin' on its mittens,
its tail unfurled.
Watching every bird
in the yard fly by,
watching every cloud
drifting through the sky.

Dog on the doorstep
squinting in the sun,
waiting for its owner
to get the yard work done

Swooping Season - Australian magpie
When they warble in a gum tree,
graze for grubs amongst the grass,
if you’re walking down a path,
they will always let you pass.

But once there’s spring in the air,
there’s no need for an excuse,
walk into their territory,
hell’s certain to break loose.

They zoom in flight, buzzing through the air
Tiny hummingbirds are darting all around
To the sugar feeder with colorful flare
Swooping, without landing on the ground

In lovely warmth of sunshine, here I sit.
I view nearby a beautiful blue lake.
Around me many birds of color flit,
and in the breeze, the lush trees' branches shake.

of little boats, each one a...Read More

I am gliding through the forest, not a care in sight,
Wings back, swooping and darting, showing off
Knowing my wren relatives are not noticing at all
But not caring to please them anyway.

Premium Member The Bird Tree
The tree trunk, knobbly grey, of sturdy girth,
Rises some short distance from the earth,
Forking into branches right and left,
In winter of its foliage bereft.
But now the tree is primed with verdant leaf,
That droops to shade the insect life beneath,
And on...Read More
