Pumpkin seeds for winter store

collected here at our front door

nuts and cones for squirrels to stash

natures bounty is hard to pass

these timely gifts of season fall

are gathered together and shared by all.

My Boehner Aches


My Boehner aches for your warm mouth

the Speeker's nose doth run

his words are flat and from the South

that fail to make us cum


Twenty four billon more

spent on a needless party

fat hor d'ourves that pound the curves

those white men sure eat hearty

Yes they are.

Truly sad it has come to this

ashamed in fact

there is a list

But what to do about their fits

these men should listen long and hard

we the people

are bleeding large

untie the rope from limb above

Now is the Time


Now is the time to dance and sing

now possible most everything

lift up your voice

shout from your heart

let your inner voice speak

become a part

lift high your head

stand and be strong

Now is the time

to end all the wrong

Golden Light

I slip across the street tonight

to watch the sun go down

facing west the bench I seek

lit golden old and brown


Is this a light so magical

it leads into a trance

red azolla spreads beneath

long reaching willows branch… Read full post »

Meal on a string

Some mornings are full of surprizes

sun shine and flutter by wings

puppets dangling on silken strings 

some mornings things just seem

to get all caught up

in violent dreams

So is the sustace gifted from the breeze

with paralizing injection 

taken in degrees… Read full post »

Water View

Clear Morning

Something in my view today

rippled twisted

then flew away


deep inside my balding head

creative thoughts

inside felt dead


let it pass tis temporaire

take a rest

sit and stare


“Go outside,” I told my self

do other things

just be yourself… Read full post »

Weeds wind and shadows


The lacy white queen sways in the distance

ghostly lanterns they

beckoning us to come

and sway 

as the tall ting dances

Stung by the first light of dawn

darkness retreats

an orchestra of wings begin

tuning itself with rays

Weedy stems twist and climb the staff… Read full post »

Open the Gate




Open the gate one last time

this centaur takes his pass

the journey now is his to take

he's done the final task


Old Rocco's seen the village come

and welcomed them with glee

Projecting loudly protecting proudly

keeping harm from thee


Our Rocco took the… Read full post »

Garden Drones


Are hard to spot

Garden Drone

And even harder to catch


Especially when they fly on cell fuel


And live for the injection diet


Soaring  high above catching little Co2's 

humming bird

Or just skimming thru our tree tops

And now to arm

with what to pay

and who does whistle

and whom shall slay

Not with my vote

Not with my dollars

The machine does cry

for war

As old men holler

for war

How can we see

with both eyes closed

that liberty… Read full post »

Amaryllis-Red Lion

 As if by magic, right on cue,

my Amaryllis spiked

then grew...

amaryllis beginnings

The family started with just one bulb

which soon became the two,

until the word got out, of course,

and two just wouldn't do.


Then Candy joined the boys one year

a change in Holiday Flare,

Deer Crossing


“Look out,” you cry, “two deer ahead!”

I flashed the lights,

“Go slow,” you said.

They turn their heads and look our way

One slips,

the pavement damp this day.

How large and majestic,

with cloven hoof

the thought of her crashing,

What Next



Are there no shores still safe from harm

in a world that grows so small


Are there pockets deep enough

to hold safe those torn apart


As strings blow in the wind this morn

has history taught us naught


Have we tilled the soil… Read full post »

Silken pods await the warmth.

W Pods

And over night she lengthens


unfurling to the very end


 her seed like blossoms begin to split

New Shoes

opening  into new shoes

Satelite WSpring

or satellites. The reception is clear and the scent devine.
