morning mist
air in stillness
trees bending gracefully in prayer
red fox silently trots past my window
her beauty inspiring me
as one bird warns with her morning song

a day to remember
a week of extra care
gathering in circles
where dreams were shared
hearts and souls opening
healing rivers flowing

is summer really here?
like magic in the air the sun arrived from nowhere
beckoning me to let writing be
knowing the rain will return eventually
so I'm going out to play carefully
for the sun's burning ray is also here today

yesterday evening
the light just turning to dusk
a large fox trotted through my garden
clearly feeling me and my cats watch
he kept turning and looking at us
as i wondered how his fur would feel to touch

awoke for no apparent reason
cats fast asleep sprawled across me
not feeling sleepy decided to write a bit of poetry

suddenly the night sky opened
after a beautiful day of heavenly sun
nourishing rain is finding its way to the ground again

hearts beating
living rhythm
drumming naturally
whiskers twitching
pulse quickening
cats asleep on me

This is the end to a much larger poem a wrote.

POF is like a fickle lover, I can't stop thinking of her,
Every day I rediscover that she truly is sublime.
Thanks for reading my silly poem, shoulda been short but the words kept flowin',
If you wanna say hi how is it goin'
Then drop me a line sometime.

mind turning round
seeking answers not yet found
waiting for guidance and direction
since this thought's inception
started three long days ago
one more day I might know

absolutely nothing new will occur to you...

something moving caught my eye
looking up just one young fawn is walking by
moving on thin legs still so wobbly
munching breakfast of fresh green shrubbery
huge ears moving constantly
swishing his small white tail occassionally

at first i thought there was just one great horned owl...............no appears to be three and ones young..........so grateful
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


i woke before light this morn
light rain was washing the day being born
walked around the corner something to see
there in the pine tree,not two owls but three
a mother and father and youngster watch i
keeping my distance,no need to make them fly

windows shut with curtains drawn
safe within my fashioned womb
sunshine slivers catch my eye
teasing me with their dances
in my mind I stretch my limbs
towards miraculous illusions

"have a drink", he said
waving towards a seat
"I will", I said, then did
charming conversation?
hours later, shoeless
I stumbled home

a flat grey light greets me this morning
no sun shining and no rain falling
trees' green leaves reflecting the grey
an odd beginning to this summer day
and through the grey now i can see
rain is soon to be watering me

today is indeed very blessed....
when friendship touches us
there is bliss upon emptiness
riding the wave of gentleness


the last four lines of a longer poem,
but these seem complete in themselves....

staring from within the wall of bone ,a bowl, only place i can live
life poured, then stirred me in
ideation built from nouns of nonsense vanishing as they begin
you swear its never been your plan ,explaining virtue in your sin
but the rules in your game always change til you win
not too much to lose ,never less, always more than you give..

she passed all too soon
on this half day moon
she was here this morning
then gone with no warning
she was much too young
to have her life all done


i'm in shock.... a young woman in her early 20's....lots of presence....
a colleague of mine....worked with her yesterday....never again....

this morning the light is grey and flat
though the trees are still such brilliant greens
and the rain and sun have grown the grass
this morning the light is grey and flat
while i, nestled in my early morning coccoon,
must rise and let the sun shine from within

closeness of my family
gathered here with me
such wonderful company
even moments of disharmony
pass through quickly
gratitude and love fill me

it is morning
greens of grass and leaves have brightened
after the rain
now they're lit with golden sun
creating shadows in multi-dimension
nature's sanctuary becomes an altered state vision

I walk away, empty
Sickness in the pit of my gut
wrenching at my soul
Screaming in my mind
tearing at my heart
And, I'll be back, again

As I walk by the place where I first saw you standing
On that summer day so long, so long ago
So much time gone by, so, so much time
I still see you there, in my mind I see you
I call out your name, I call, call your name
Then I see that this was only shadows playing

Many worship at the alter of the non believer
unable to see through the smoke of their own destruction
Crying out into the night to an emptyiness within them
Wondering why their is no answer coming
The answer was right their but it was unaccepted
So this empiness grinds on and on and on.

writing haiku
suddenly a view
one young deer...then two...
white spots upon their backs
six eyes watching
including my cats
