I used to imagine I was Thoreau
Perched on a rock with my notebook or my copy of On the Road
Overlooking slopes of endless yellow fallen leaves
That descended to the brook side

As soon as I could drive I’d head out of...Read More

Premium Member My Country Memory
Summer in the country with sunshine on my back
I linger near the outbuildings, pretending to be a super sleuth
Like Nancy Drew, I look for clues, about my grandparents’ country ways

My twin sister is missing the grasshoppers, bullfrogs, and butterflies.
She is...Read More

The country, people, and the village,
All equal, as if, for the first time, 
All of that gave a fresher image,
Nay, 'tis but a relative vantage.
Save fresh road, to its left bears a sign.

Ill Wind Blowing
There’s a cult fever chill
in the Assyrian air
Coven chants of Rabshakeh croaks
are placebo heard
‘round the alabaster oval frond

Toadie tongues swallow
swarm of fly words,
a-blowing Nineveh ill
Maggot tone larvae of lies 
carried on an opiate pulse wind,
which conscience kill

Smell the fetid emanations

Premium Member Is this because
Long ago, in youth long gone,
I spent hours at a pond,
A clay base, sun adorning, 
Tadpoles swimming, half forming,
I spied with a magnifying glass,
Frogs finally hopped at last,
Now, no frogs, cause no rain,
Is it because of climate change?
That was our...Read More

Premium Member Summer's Spell
Don't awaken me from this Summer spell,
the one that I have been waiting for
since freshets announced themselves
in Spring rivers and streams,
since crocuses began pushing their way
steadily up through almost melted
clumps of snow,
since brilliant black and yellow bumblebees
began darting about the...Read More

Grapes Of Despair
There is no part of life mine alone,
If regarding my whole existence.      
What belongs to me is only flesh and bone,
Therefrom this life has subsistence.

Down on the farm I was buying time,
The universe I studied...Read More

Paintings
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 6/18/2019

Paint, old painter, because pleasant to the eye
is a family portrait, like Colonel Zagloba*.
And don't forget about a mug of golden ale
emptied in the morning for good humor.

Paint me old grandpa and military equipment
in which along...Read More

Too Many Pets
I’m facing a challenge and I’m taking bets

Premium Member Two young tadpoles
Long ago and far away
  In a marsh of murky waters 
Did two young tadpoles play 

Mired deep inside the bog
  Succumbing to relentless fog
~ Divers only found a pair of frogs

bin chicken
oddly they swim where only yesterday
grass laid down and withered
having been subjected to the slasher’s blade

not far from Tweed Heads

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

Premium Member Childhood Memories


Perusing photos of old friends
rekindles childhood memories.
For their silly smiles draw me back 
to a great summer had by all.

A sultry sun dyed our skin bronze
as we chased tadpoles in the creek.
And pledged we'd be friends forever
while searching for buried...Read More

Puddles and Pirates
I can't play marbles in the rain -
Or even spin my top.
My skates will not roll in puddles,
And it's too wet to hop. 

Ah, but I can be a pirate,
And I can float my boat 
Up the river from New...Read More

Premium Member An Alliteration of the Summer Season
Soaking up sunshine on sandy warm shores;
   sipping sangria while sampling smores.
Under umbrellas we’re putting to use;
   utterly euphoric as the day comes unloose.
Mid-morning mildness is making me muse;
   mild mannered time I must...Read More

Frogs Echo On The Miles
Mosquito populations explode in murky bogs
Their larvae swim with tadpoles in this incubation
This ugly undertaking commanded by their nature
Constant as the day is long and just as distant
Marsh water echos soon produces frogs

As katydids reverberate through forest wilderness
A noise most...Read More

April's sudden Enlightenment
April’s Sudden Enlightenment 

By Stina Lu 

April walks down from the decaying Chinese rose
Pushes away the flirty wind
Neglects the sunlight’s sudden closeness and farness 

Leaves wear a shining green crown
which is granted by the season 
All charming flowers are ordered...Read More

The River Has Receded
Everything is just like yesterday
Same boat, same coat, same joke
The river is receding and deeds are reveling
This morning I got up with an uncomfortable feeling
I was longing for something that was not there
And it leaves me cold empty and bear

Toadlet
Toadlet

Sitting smoking at stupid am
well before coming dawns glow
disturbed from restless sweaty sleep
by spattering mill or two of rain
and as I sit on damp door steps
a toadlet hops into the light 
peeking out from my window.

Bedazzeled she freezes I watch...Read More

RAINBOW LADY

(Life begins at forty...  Walter B. Pitkin)

Yes, if you believe in miracles.
If you take lows for pinnacles.

I will turn the page tomorrow,
sign a fresh lease come what may,
forty windblown years behind me,
a few more to come my way.
