Burst forth
Collect, collect
Feed us, feed us, feed us
Dance prettily, if you must
Before you are tossed away
To feed the earth, your grave

Young buck
Pawing the snow cover
Nibbling the greens beneath
But ever watchful

Owly in My Wood

Owly in my wood so wide-eyed,
You perch above the green floor,
Where lunch skitters,
But you look at me
Swiveling your head.
You wonder, danger?

The black thing clicks,
She crouches down
And leans forward.
She turns the black thing.
She walks along the ridge,
And peers out from the pine.
Finally she goes away.

Now, where is my lunch?

Sisters in a Slot Canyon

Traveling with a sister
What joy to slip
Between the slot canyon walls!
Pictures snapping all around
The colors, the lines, the space
So sinuous.
We are amazed.

Antelope Canyon

DSC01896

Swift as an antelope
I’d want to be
When the mighty waters
Rush these walls.

How can such utter
Force
Leave breath-catching
Beauty?

Lines of light
Reflect the sun
In surprising ways;
Colors the eyes can’t even see.

Quiet canyon now;
Stop and listen
As the mind searches for sound.
Still silence, moving walls.

Black raspberries

Clear the weeds

Breathe and bask

Look up

Eye-popping

Forest gifts

Waiting for me

Wild black raspberries!

Pondering the Ant

Ant

Little ant
invading my shot
did you think
you’d be the focus?

Well go ahead
live your life
out here.

Enter my kitchen
and your chance for survival
plummets.

Crash

crash

Sitting at the red stoplight
Minding my own
Sunny day
A list to check off
Motion in the mirror
Glance to check it

BANG

Man apologizing at my window
Trembling
confusion
neck hurts
Police, ambulances, urgent care clinic
Day gone

Ode to the Duck Egg

Posted on April 26, 2014. Filed under: Breakfast Made Simple, Health, Just Fun, Poetry | Tags: , , , |

Duck Eggs

The farmer called:
He’s got 3 dozen.
Our stomachs did a flutter, enthralled;
Spring has truly begun!

To crack them;
To hear them sizzle in the pan;
To eye the white whites,
the orange yolks!

And then to bite
Their luscious ducky goodness
Soaked into the sourdough toast.
Truly a taste of heaven.
