Premium Member THE ORPHAN
Entertained by flickers on a screen, cosseted between giants. Suited with slicked-back raven hair, snow-white starched shirt, an innocent tie.

Mother smiles at his sky-blue eyes. Father pats his shoulder, “Good show!”
The nightingale, high in spirits. The tanager beyond the street...Read More

Darkness Held At Bay
First rays splash lines of love 
across naked bits of detour

dawn's door distracts 
chills of the night dissipate 
and I am free

Free of fight
held hostage ever tight

First rays flash and I see : 

yellow bits of honey dripped
scarlet tanager at...Read More

Natures nest
How beautiful the sounds, sights of nature

In the distance alarm call of a cuckoo,

beautiful sound of summer Tanager

Blackbirds hopping around getting in a stew,

Acrobatics of swallows, swifts, Martins,

Crows of the carrion, rooks, jackdaws, Raven

Cooing of turtle doves and wood pigeons,...Read More

Waiting
I been tired of waiting and waiting i been melting.
It’s been almost an hour when it started raining
I can’t tell you how much I want a smelting
I need energy since an hour I have been draining.

How upsetting it’s the time
How...Read More

Summer Nights in the South


Green fireflies blink in the quiet of night

and our sleeping old dog heaves a sigh.

Dreaming, she sprints through a youthful blue sky

chasing delicate clouds, cotton-white.



A red-sunset tanager* colors the warm air

from a perch in the majestic...Read More

Two haiku after a painting by Russell Gordon

flowering dogwood
perched and pert, a tanager
harkens to the wind

flowering dogwood
perched and pert, just listening
scarlet tanager
………………………………..

this plaster statue
she’s naked, white and demure
looking at a rose

her round, yellow hat
casts a shadow as she picks
transformation bloom

Who?      What?

INSPIRATION
I followed the violent tanager to find
Where her nest is –
It is three inches in length in this
Gigantic oak hidden from the day’s full light

I watched these noisy and tiny birds
To find where they will be next spring –
I gave...Read More

Felicity
I have longed for you my love
as committed the tanager to sing
my yearn to hear your voice
as watercourses the mountains spring
 
My joy leaps like the springbok
at the thought of coming home
the beating heart within my breast
hungers for you alone

Art Museum I
With children in tow 
on winter’s heels set off to
follow fine artists 
Lovingly lost in copper,
canvas, bright color 
framboise, tanager, yarrow 
Picasso, Beckmann, Klimt
Woman with a Hat, Nighthawks
haunting, surreal …
Writing, painting, tones
sculpting, gazing, trudging on
weary, fulfilled, homeward bound …

Bright-Green Leaves
Inside the forest's sea-of-green, 
Sits a hungry, bright-scarlet tanager.

Eating one caterpillar after another,
In minutes he gulps down thirty-five. 

Doing its part to help the forest,
Ridding the forest of harmful insects.

And over there in a huge green tree,
A little red-eyed vireo,...Read More
