The Market Shell

The market is filled

with unique finds

having keen insight

I exhibited mine

Imploring a technique

that is seldom used

each feature is highlighted

so not to be confused

A shell so unique

its beauty unmatched

a story to tell

a need to attach

Looking closer

hearing a faint sound

peaceful music

calming to those around

A small blue color

a universe of its own

life in the ocean

never alone

Home from the market

displayed on a shelf

visitors admire it

like magic from an elf

The shell brings thought

as people ponder its life

now bringing comfort

the soul of the afterlife

Tsunami

Standing on the roof

as far as the eye can see

calm waters abound

a wonderful day to be free

Out of sight

the volcano blows

a fault line moves

a wave begins to grow

Traveling faster

aided by the wind

gaining strength

seemingly no end

There is a warning

the horn makes a loud sound

people screaming

running to higher ground

The wave rushes

looting the land

debris everywhere

even taking the sand

The waters recede

fortunately no one is hurt

valuables are gone

all that is left is dirt

The volcano is quiet

lulled back into sleep

life is restored

until the next time we meet

A Mill From the Past

Hacking the trees

excited at the find

an old mill

a sign of the times

Trending into the past

the river breached its banks

causing some damage

misplacing some planks

The river changed direction

now the mill is in a stream

leaving its life to the imagination

an exciting dream

Repairing the damage

the wheel begins to spin

water gushing through it

productive again

Visitors come

excited to see the past

a new town surrounds it

history alive at last

A Cruise Ship Excursion

Amidst the totem poles

the callithumpian band plays

in this juncture

the spruikers have their day

Tourist come

off the cruise ships

wearing colorful shirts

some looking hip

Each totem pole

tells a story of a life

good and bad times

victory over strife

Dancers send up prayers

in elaborate costumes

sometimes clouds produce thunder

tourists assume impending doom

Winds rise high

clouds cover the sun

rain comes down

tourist begin to run

After the show

tourist buy trinkets

a token to remind them

of a wonder that twinkled

The totem poles

slowly return to the earth

a reminder that life is

continuously filled with rebirth

A Morning Flight

Leaping off the mountain

into the ramshackle atmosphere

joining my colleague

without fear

Floating along

enjoying the view

what happened next

was something new

Seeing some birds

joining the pack

bragging that I was one of them

tapping one on the back

The bird was startled

losing some altitude

took some minutes to recover

then came back with an attitude

Attacking me

calling all his friends

I quickly began

to try to make amends

Poetic justice in the moment

as the wind died down

I began to drop

having a nervous breakdown

Falling faster

the wind picked up again

suddenly rising to safety

relief and a grin

Sliding onto the ground

watching the birds disappear

never again bragging

hindsight is clear

Jellyfish Rhythm

Achieving an andante rhythm

the jellyfish perform a dance

careful coordination

leaving nothing to chance

Choreographed from scratch

expression of life in the sea

man and animals alike

marvel at the degree

Aided by the current

oxygen illuminates their bellies

an alternating light show

a little scary

The troupe moves on

disappearing into the night

some will come in with the waves

at first light

Happiness in the Mist

In the midst of deep forest

all worries are castoff

walking along the path

encountering a trough

Together we drink

the wildlife and me

cool water

enjoying harmony

Our homes are modular

unique to each of us

providing comfort

without a fuss

Silence is broken

as birds and crickets sing

sun burns off the midst

stream begins to gleam

A beautiful home

grateful to share

serenity around me

surrounded by those who care

The Sunken Souls

The water was chilly

as I descended down the steps

wanting to belong to a clique

that only met at this depth

The clique seemed an oxymoron

as my dive began

so many creatures together

one nipped my hand

Reaching a coral reef

the group reigned supreme

legends in their own minds

there was even a queen

A silent city

sunken so long ago

new life has taken over

a beautiful place to go

A sawyer attached to

a sunken boat

slowly rising

attempting to float

Long deceased passengers

of this boat

not able to move on

just to gloat

Stealing energy

of those who came to visit

death surrounds them

the invitation is explicit

Fleeing now

realizing not my style

swimming frantically

safe after a mile

Climbing out

grateful to have left the strife

determined to appreciate others

now and in the afterlife

The Aquarium

An echo of freedom can be heard

elevated high in the sky

majestic creatures

swimming quite high

With the click of a button

photographs are made

still and grand

hall in the shade

Humans gasp

and hold up their hands

hoping a creature will perform

an act quite grand

The sea creatures are unbothered

as they swim in the sun

living unencumbered

quiet and fun

The aquarium is a facade

humans thinking creatures are in bondage

magnificent creatures are free

not held hostage

Each are released

back into the wild

held only for protection

when having a child

Curious tourists

learn about their habitat

how lives are lived

a wonder at that

The humans and creatures

are each at peace

living in harmony

happiness is within reach
