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.
Operation Library/Afternoon Adventure
Putting the pen to the paper: This poem was created out of my 30 minute ‘Free Write’ at my local library. I noticed my prose was poem-y, or my poem was prose-y, so I did a quick edit as I inputted the words into the second draft. ** It is still a work in progress.
Today is a great day to create a great day.
This site is my attempt at gathering all of my creativity that I have strewn about out 'there'....
