An Ode to Life’s Small Treasures;
Grandiose Unrealized Pleasures
6:30 am, the arse crack of dawn,
a time for the devil’s spawn,
or so I had thought...
I never knew such beautiful skies! I kid you not!
Opulent pearly pink, incandescent sky,
sultry shades of sorbet sashay.
Bloomy roars, reverberating cheery encouragements.
Optimistic rosy glow, vibrantly voicing hope,
radiating a golden orb of fiery faith in rocky times,
peeking out from the sinister buzzkill clouds;
Glorious red and yellow blazing, entwining flames of citrus
in sky mirrors, topsy turvy glassy reflections make me tipsy.

Rules of the Triolet Form...
The requirements of this fixed form are straightforward: the first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines; the second line is repeated in the final line; and only the first two end-words are used to complete the tight rhyme scheme. Thus, the poet writes only five original lines, giving the triolet a deceptively simple appearance: ABaAabAB, where capital letters indicate repeated lines.

Advice from A - L for Troubled Times
Battle by the creek:
Red squirrel defends domain;
On offense now, a chase ensues.
It can’t be that bad --
Woodpeckers go about their day,
knocking all the way.
Crow butts in, causing chaotic scattering.
Turkey vulture circles,
joined by a kettle looking to kill.
Here, life goes on.
Robin announces it’s Spring.
Dark eyed and grey Juncos peeping in the shadows of the earth.
Squirrels galore, gathering and
Cardinal love is in the air;
Red croons to his love.
She, joins him — a fine pair!
Mourning dove laments — We can
never be who we were before.
Doggy days indeed.
And still --

Tumultuous Times (2020)
opulent pearly pink, incandescent sky,
sultry sherbert sashays, radiating hope in rocky times
oh, the iridescent greening!
permeates pandemic panic
and, like a colouring book,
vivid rainbow petals burst.
then, bugs buzz back,
into my life like death hugs.
