While driving to work one rainy morning, I saw a hawk sitting on power lines and imagined a mouse in the grass below. An ATC made for a Facebook Friend.


Like a River

Springing from ancient headwaters,

The long and winding river flows.

“““““““““““““““““

Gaining momentum in its course,

It is a watery ribbon

Cutting through rock and undergrowth,

On a journey of raging floods and rough rapids,

Slow miles of deep stillness and stagnant swamps,

Forever shaping the landscape with its power,

Until it spills into an ocean of eternal depth,

Crashing wave after wave,

Beating itself against the ragged shore.

““““““““““““““““““`

Sadness, like a river, rolls on.

Ever it rolls on.


Dreaming Springtime

Early morning ride,

Dreaming springtime.

Nature’s wild youth blooming,

Fields green with new grass,

Dewdrops like diamonds

And fairy rings.

Woodland nymphs

Stare from behind Judas trees

Hanging like a purple mist

Along the busy streets.


Stormy Night

A single star peeks

From behind scattered black clouds

A troubled night falls


Naked Fields

Where trees once stood proud

housing developments rise

from fields of red clay


Bliss…A Fibonacci Poem

Bliss

Is

Knowing

The secrets

Whispered in the wind

An instant of fleeting knowledge

Caught in wild frenzied flight, then falling to Earth again…..


Insects’ Voices

Night descends,
A foreign landscape forms.

A million insects’ voices rise
And fall in purple twilight.

Aliens in an alien world
Form,
When darkness falls.


Morning Interlude

Morning sun,
Dappled splotches of light
Paint tall grasses
Touched with dew.

Sparkles like diamonds,
Or a lover’s eyes,
Warm, impassioned jewels.

Life stirs love awake,
Fanciful dreaming ensues.

Drifting on dream tide,
A sensual morning interlude.


Overcast Morning

Overcast morning

day lilies sway on green stems

waiting for the rain


A Wild Rambling Rose

A wild rambling rose grows
Along my fence.

A riotous burst of color and rose-vine
twists and turns and loops
Through metal links
As it expands and moves
Upon its journey to reach
Sun’s light.

They are inseparable now,
Joined and coupled ‘til the end of time.

Just like my soul.
Just like my heart,
Entwined with thine.
