The Moose
The Moose
When let loose
Was chased by a goose
The Goose called a Truce
He knew it was no use
He'd run out of puff
The going got tough
Then over the road
An inquisitive Toad
With Big Bulging Eyes
That spied Juicy Flies
The Flies were aware
Of that Toady...Read More

Horny Toads

Grandpa knew everything, 
that was needed to be known, 
always. 

I stayed every summer, 
from the time before I remember, 
until the time I pray,
never to forget. 

We worked in the garden.
We dug holes, and planted seeds. 
Everything was...Read More

Premium Member My Car is Competitive
A most competitive tool is my car.
She really hates to be passed on the road.
Whether we are traveling near or far,
Passing turns her into an evil toad.

My right foot presses pedal to the floor.
Doing a hundred, or maybe a bit...Read More

When life is losing its meaning,
And the glorious colors grow pale,
And death seems the one destination,
Remember the humble toad,
Doomed to spend drier days
Digging deep in the arid ground,
Seeking survival and shelter,
But to be loving and birthing,
It later returns to the...Read More

Premium Member Rhapsody in Black
Softly the night falls,
Shadowing vacant halls;
My recent morning glory, 
Now is nature's history.

Petals bob in warm air;
Tweets of a love affair!
Racy brook, moon gleam,
A time has come to dream.

Night creatures very gay,
As night owl hoots away;
All humanity in a swoon-

Premium Member The Toad Mistaken
Two toads appear in a lonely wood
One may be bad, the other may be good
Each claimed their route to be the best
They challenged me to take their test

Enchanted forest myths pose questions
So often paths part in two directions

Frogs like open toad shoes I'm told
Swamps might be where crocs are landing
A ninja likes to wear sneakers
Large shoes show good understanding!

The boss always looks for loafers
Detectives lean toward gumshoes
You'll see pumps in a hardware store
Clogs are what a plumber...Read More

The Folly of Wisdom

I must bend down to her to understand.
But she only smiles, and takes my hand.

A Worried Toad

Said a worried toad to a witch concocting her brew:
It’s been centuries since we were used as ingredients.
Has mankind gone soft on murder, vengeance and doom?
Speaking for myself and what your lethal brew forbodes
couldn’t you stick to deadlier time-tested expedients...Read More

Whippoorwill jumping jack
Putting daisies pretty

Upside down me.

Mordecai the Cat

After years of daily complacency,
Mordecai meows against domesticity.

that give me cramps and grumpy moods.

something wild and unprocessed,

a soulmate

Toad


Whither now hunker-shins?
You have a sweet countenance,
a squat grace,
always middle-aged
on the contrary edge
of a speeding sun.
Another swift day has begun
yet you sit here
among the traffic
unflinching, a bold 
bladder quelling gravity
with low-sprung shanks.
You deep-seated recliner,
standing-pat
over upholstered hams.
A lumpy Mona Lisa,

Frederick did mount his bike.
‘Bye Mum I’m off for a hike’
he said, as he went on his way,
that day, one sunny Saturday. 

He was very close to running over, 
a snail emerging from the clover.
‘Too fast’ it said, ‘you’ll crush...Read More

Spring 



A sweet whistling breeze 
Sways upon 
A mighty tree 
Bare and dead as it seems
Awakens from a deep sleep

Trails through the fog
A dreary winter left behind 
Buds open up
And leaves assume their position 

Black gloomy silhouettes...Read More
