Ameliorate: A New World

fish bowl

In a bowl

transformation ameliorates strife

a new world emerges

taking on life

 

Darkness ends

separation of land and sea

light on the horizon

fascinating to me

 

New life appears

takes on many forms

the cold is disappearing

warmth is the norm

 

Plants growing now

spring is in the air

colorful blooms appearing

the show has much flair

 

Fish in the sea

great and small

each with a purpose

gifts for all

 

Many animals now

fierce and strong

continuing a cycle

what could go wrong

 

The final stage comes

humans appear

put in charge of all

does earth live or disappear

Present, Potential, Clouds: Alligator’s Recap of the Day

alligator on golf course 2 may 5

Living in the present

so many things to do

life has potential

some days not a clue

 

Lying on this course

in the morning sunshine

fish jumping near me

a fine place to dine

 

A sound in the distance

scrumptious smells in the air

face lifted upward

eyes staring with a glare

 

Opportunities abound

a bird flies by

diving into the water

returning to the sky

 

Glancing around

comfortable in the present

head back down

the moon is crescent

 

Time to slip away

rain falling down

day turning to night

creatures are abound

 

Living in the moment

having fulfilled the potential of the day

clouds giving me cover

as I retire in the bay

Spoof, Integrated, and Cursory: A Duckling’s Game

geese drinking water in strawberry park april 24

 

The small duckling looked around

his family not found

seeing a mother goose

to a game he became bound

 

He spoofed the goose

integrated into her nest

everything going well

it was a good place to rest

 

Time to get up

the mother goose called

goslings and the duckling fell in line

each having a ball

 

Leaving the nest

closer to the water they came

each got in

the duckling thought it was a wonderful game

 

His mother spotted him

calling his name

with cursory speed she swam

quacking he should be ashamed

 

The mothers met 

not amused by his spoof

each gave a lecture

expressions of reproof

 

The duckling swam home

he quacked with fake shame

climbed into the nest

having enjoyed his game

Fluke: Water Encounter

fallen limb in reservoir outlook march 31

Kayaking across the reservoir

slight breeze with water blue

enjoying the silence

not having a clue

 

Suddenly a fluke occurred

and there ahead of me

was a circular object

as shiny as can be

 

Moving closer

the object began to dance

causing ripples in the water

putting me in a trance

 

Slowly approaching

then there came a scan

searching my deep inner soul

learning as much as it can

 

Suddenly a cloud appeared

the object was in motion

the sun was sizzling

my paddling causing a commotion

 

Coming to my senses

paddling really fast

object returned to the sky

as land appeared at last

 

Safely on shore

memory beginning to fade

was it real or a dream

will think about the encounter in the shade

Stellar and Ostentatious: A Thunderstorm Performs

rainbow on colorado mountain

A stellar performance

thunderstorm moving across the land

rain coming down in sheets

lightening ostentatiously joins the band

 

Strikes to the left

then the thunder roars

moving effortlessly

the land craves more

 

Rain coming down hard

the river moves beyond its banks

gushing torrid waters

causing some landscape to be blank

 

Another lightening strike

hitting metal full force

electricity is present everywhere

power changing course

 

Wild beauty in the sky

an electric light show

the full force of nature

causing land and sky to glow

 

The storm ends

rainbow in the sky

the finish to a fine performance

the sun is on standby

Smorgasbord: A Field of Flowers

foxgloves ms museum of art april 23

A smorgasbord of flowers

filled the land

so many colors

hard to find a specific brand

 

Each unique and beautiful

with opportunities to bring

calling to all who surround them

an introduction to spring

 

Each with a different talent

some spread out wide

others keep to themselves

each struggling to survive

 

Careful care taken

each nourished by the rain

lavishing in the soil

all the flowers gain

 

Beauty knows no bounds

each shining in its own way

appreciating the journey

on a wonderful summer day

Bastion: A Cardinal From Heaven

IMG_3680

A bastion of hope

the cardinal sings

there are messages

from Heaven he brings

 

A far off place

visits from those that have departed

bright red feathers

love has not been discarded

 

Not far away

there is a nest

a bastion of protection

little ones rest

 

Landing in a tree

observing the world in a branch

seeking new adventures

continuing to advance

 

Flying away

a visit to ponder

smiles on faces

spirit comforted with wonder
