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

Wild Extravagance
Austere magic and verdant odor 
in sombre shades of thick forest,
nature breathing a breeze of life
among lofty trees and tall grasses.
wilful beneath a boundless blue sky,
sunlight dapples an emerald canvas.

Lilac bushes soothe alder woods 
wildflowers cluster charteus groves.
quaking aspen and...Read More

Premium Member Snowman inside the Globe
I sit in my place atop the hearth
Awaiting someone to shake me up and down
They don’t always pay attention with mirth
But when they do, I always love how they clown

It’s Christmas morning and I’m thrilled
Everyone walking past me is beaming
They...Read More

dramatic swooshing

sugar maple expecting

Premium Member WINTER CAVE
WINTER CAVE

In the dark, hearken to the swooshing trees.
Everything varies in the ebon-light.
Squirrels and foxes do not collaborate.
The swirl of red fur and the howl of coyotes
like dancing of the Northern lights.
Artificial illumination inside the Winter cave.
Television-dusk relaxes the limbs
and...Read More

To Be Ancient

It is good to be ancient, 
As with a vintage of the eternal red, 
Sealed for the duration with an aged English cork.
Now youthful impulses hold no sway in the empty offing.
I recall them all, as I have...Read More

Premium Member My Thoughts
My thoughts, they swirl, like dried up grass
Everywhere on breezes- 
No sense, too many on the move
Swooshing through my mind.

I just can’t focus on the why
You had to go with him.
I thought we would be things in rings
And marry up...Read More

Where Has All The Beauty Gone?

There is no time like the now times,
The ever-present blood-swooshing times.
Time again to surrender as a smitten lover surrenders,
To the never-ending rhapsodies of erotic impulses,
Which exhale as a listless leviathan exhales,
Basking in the swishing waters...Read More

Returns
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski

A young willow swooshing that she is already a tree
and that she remembers the details: water yokes, tadpoles,
croaking of frogs, duckweed, mother kneeling in need
- lost maidens' midsummer wreaths.

Kite research flight - what for, where to?
But if...Read More

AT SUMMER’S PEAK

Gold champagne and tipsy, the bride unbridled.
Round and round, she stirs with romance under the
moon and stars, a-swooshing. A wedding toast with
     bubbles and giggling.

cheeks at Summer’s...Read More

The parachute cloud like a rainbow wave,
undulates up and down - a swooshing sound.
The force of a light breeze or a great storm.
Voices lifting and buoyant, glory bound.

Wind swept lofty hills
barren of trees 
blades of tall grass
sway in the soft breeze
sounds of ocean waves
caressing the sandy shore
gulls fly overhead
swooshing downward
on gusts of wind

lost in lonely thoughts
sometimes love is lost
sometimes love hurts
feelings get hidden

Spring was coming early
The call was heard for squeezing in
One extra outdoor outing
We loaded up our skis, boots and gear
It was minus ten Celsius and sunny

Soaking in those awesome sunrays
Warm enough to wrap our coats...Read More

Humble Pride
Doused in depression's dangerous zone
Feeling so afraid of being left all alone
Negative thoughts like these cannot be all that...natural
No longer caught up in swish-swooshing waves of appall

In the universe of tragedy in reverse,
I spin and twirl like a ballet dancer

Blue
angels
brave hello,
in full command,
swooshing overhead.
Like the sun at twilight —
so low, with hurricane force.
Swift temptation tips cochlea —
you must obey the dust devil’s thrust —
the haboob hastens your smile reaction.

Gliding through mini luscious everglades
Waterlily pads ahead, to the right
Then to the left, careful not to disturb
Swooshing gently through calm serene stillness
Stealthily paddling a ten-foot canoe
Splendour before us, reverence and awe
Silence broken by a loon’s lonely call

Hushed chitter chatter of...Read More
