Wealth of Spring

Assorted spring flowers, naked, rise in morning sun
Breaking through a thin blanket of snow, earth spun.
Cascades of dainty Narcissus smile with golden faces
Drinking up the sun as morning warmth embraces.
Enjoy the heavenly floral scent that gardens bring.

Premium Member What Can We Do

A feathered clutch once bewailed –
What can a sparrow do
in a sky full of raptors?
The red-necked puckers’ won’t arrive
until blood smells like copper pennies.

She was only one winter old,
cried a fuss-bucket booby.
Begone crone.
 croaked a plumed strutter.

When everybody comes out of their fears 
Every Soul is enjoying this phase 
For weather is too good these days

That sucked last drop of blood from every Splinter

Premium Member Summer's Withered Bloom

The carcass of beauty spent and done
picked clean by scavengers of time,
whose sated memories of summer
ask for no quarter and offer none.

Winter winds tango with scattered leaves
in tune with a different drummer,
spinning fragments of color and light
into chromatic threads, Autumn...Read More

The Droughtless - heavily floats
past my window, obscuring all
but the foghorn tweets of wings.

Contrast the sweet songbirds,
sky-blue and linguistic-red,
with doldrum skies non-speak.

O angel-child’s cherubic cheeks -
vocalist mouth riveting
as a full moon; starless night.

Zoom in; warm colors of harbor -
teal, vanilla...Read More

You will receive a reward for your deception, 
You will always be loved by me. 
You don't need to Serenade me anymore. 
I know you've stopped loving me. 

You were chosen for your purity, 
For sincerity and tenderness of feelings....Read More

flowers bloom, 
they smell so sweet,
so many beautiful colors.

the boiling sun
warms my body, and
tickle my toes. swimming
and licking popsicles,
to cool us off.

autumn leaves turn
colors to red, yellow, and 
golden brown, they
like to twirl in the

I wish I had been born in the days of

Premium Member The Sound of Violin
I pricked my ears to follow the sound,
As did my son and our puppy hound,
delight of violin in full tune,
Played to setting sun and rising moon!

Winter evening was well underway,
Christmas carol singers in full sway,
Violin was playing the church psalms,

Canada Jays

Four seasons ’round Canada jays are found,
Perched in tree branches safe and sound;
Resting after flying throughout the North,
In the Canadian boreal forests.
Heard and not seen unless it’s their intention,
To disturb the silence, making known their presence
By confronting intruders in...Read More

A look at the world through children's eyes
Opens a bright new scene
Some things that reach a boiling point
Turn out to be nothing but steam!

Kids have a way of looking at things
We can learn from these little guys
Don't ever take life...Read More

a time to sleep more in winter 
Even birds do sleep extra 
Lovely to see sun rise 
So to see sun set

The rose of love's bright promise
lies torn by her own thorn;
her scent was sweet
but at her feet
the pallid aphids mourn.
The lilac of devotion
has felt the winter hoar
and shed her dress;
she shivers, nude and sore.

Moments In Love
It’s been so long since I’ve seen you
Even longer since I felt your voice
Whispering in my ear.
I miss the way you made me feel
Whenever you touched me.
Your kisses were so soft
Like down feather pillows.
Your hugs embraced me
Like a winter comforter.

Bright star, ascendant,
Now too quickly gone,
Light becoming -
Bright as transparent rainbow colors
Made of sun and storm
Lingering on the sky 
With not one color unseen,
Full spectrum complete
Of joys, of tears, of hope -
Abiding memory
Of child becoming one
With woman
In endless summer days

hey pete,
it's baseball season
and the sun ascends the sky,
encouraging a schoolboy's dreams
of winter whizzing by;
go out, go out and catch it,
put it in a jar,
set it on a shelf
and then you'll be a Superstar.
