Although in strength little ants are weak seemingly,
Years of their gnawing may bring about a calamity. 
By hard work, they can make a river or sea leak,
Also they can eat up a giant whale beak by beak.
By unremitting efforts, they...Read More

When I'm old...
I'm gonna have a tree house cave
When I'm old...
I'm going to be  a lazy margarita lizard
playing with little baby sea serpents
And writing poems and verses on chalkboard
Oh, and when I'm old...
Aquarius my sign  sweet'N sour

Under the sparkling waterfall, cascades
of rushing amber waves. A breathless
spirit of invigorating grace - she fades.

Just as quick, she reappears, with cockle shells
dancing upon her bikini’d breast. The mermaid
sways my sigh, with a melody that no mortal can slay.

With splendid...Read More

Premium Member No New Water

There's no new water on earth it's all been recycled
That thought just came to me in a flash, my mind did spiral
It's mind-blowing
It's thought-provoking
Makes me think about all the whale poop quite vile

World of Bubbles
have you seen the mermaid beauty
who swims down in the deep blue sea
never any troubles
in her world of bubbles
quite happy fancy and so free

she swims wherever she wishes
with seahorse whale and crayfishes
with sparkling raven hair
that just flows everywhere
chasing the fresh...Read More

Premium Member Billy the Whale

There was once a blue whale named Billy
Who loved to get really really silly
And swim in waves all big and super hilly
His favorite flower was a pink lily
But he hated the winters getting chilly
Or wearing anything that was frilly
He just...Read More

I'm going to sea in a blueberry boat

I’m going to sea in a blueberry boat,
macaroon waves I will sail
Far past the girls and the buoys I’ll float,
maybe spout off to a whale

My crew at the ready but still half a sleep,
I’ll have to turn on the charm
Wake...Read More

The bigger the hole, the bigger the fish,
The better the hope, the better the wish,
That's not a fish, that's a whale,
Much too big a fish to scale,
But one thing for sure, get a bigger dish.

I believe  a Force in the universe
pushes around and around suns, moons
pulls and pushes electrical storms
galaxies swarm as stars sway and form

a universe that sent the stars into the night

Hey man. Take this.

I got it last night,
under a fractured street light,
with shattered pieces of clear glass, scattered
at the nexus of an obscure dark freeway offramp,
way down there in magical...Read More

Walking, Talking and Swimming
Uphill and down dale
We walk, we talk, we both frown...

But why do you look so pale
And as grey as a white whale
One that is all lost at sea

Or is it just me that I see
As rare as rare can ever...Read More

Restore Life 2
Species did die ere man,
In the round of selection,
So many and so long.
What difference now
Should they go?

In trackless time
Lent to adaptation,
A peice succeeds
To its proper slot,
Only displacing
By adjusted gene.
Extinction wrought by man
Plays at no game,
But sweeps all the peices
To the...Read More

Premium Member The Sea
The sea calls me
 whispers in my ears,
the rise and fall of foaming waves
 waft the scent of salt tasted tears,
a haven released through time
 pounding surf, light, dark and dreams
  upon each sounding splashing wave.

Rise. Greet the ocean...Read More

A fishing boat left the port of Kinsale 
The rain was lashing and blowing a gale
Fishing grounds were in sight
Then they had a great fright
Along side swam a giant killer whale.

A fish pong round the boat was so smelly

Seamen Shantey
Skinny-dipping with you is a thrill
For a man who is over the hill
But just one squiggly squirm
From a small dangling worm
And a fish will dart in for the kill!

Can swallow more than you...Read More

The crazy world

That chilly night in Bucharest
As I lay down in my bed to rest
Torrents of thoughts assailed me
Avalanche of questions tore my heart apart

As I reminisced over the events of previous days
I felt the world moving in collective dementia
As disasters and...Read More

Premium Member God and I Have Never Met
God and I have never met,
At least as I recall—
But I’ve seen the autumn turn to flame,
And a prancing flurry fall.

O the glowing stars of heaven,
For I know no better word—
But is not a whale a miracle,
Or as well a...Read More

To feel the fly’s slow death as the spider sucks 
And the flame’s increasing hunger 
The need of clouds to swell before a storm 
The precision of the cell
The uncontrolled control of ants
Where kisses begin and end

There are some enlightened beings
Who are in sympathy with nature,
Those fascinated by it, seeing
That each and every plant and creature
Is worthy of the deepest admiration,
With an inherent right to feature
In an holistic emancipation
Parallel to that of humans in its ease.

A Solar System is Watching

I study eyes, eye's only mind sees.
Inside those orbs a little
protogenic me crawls away.
The tiny creature is going back to God,
he remains cohesive in a residual way.

A solar system is watching;
its dying sun is a question mark.
Jupiter and Planet X
