Hoodoo

Hoodoo

 

The hoodoos rested here a while

And turned to face the great Bow River

Rocks and pine trees at their backs

This family of albino giants

Wind hewn and born of the water

White wolves of the sedimentary

Standing on the Inuit trail

That led them from the turqoise tumult

 

Towering to Alberta skies

That shimmer in the August heat

These monoliths of time s...

city

Not in reality
do I walk through this forrest
not in reality
do I hear these birds
or drink this cold water
of the morning leaves

I look up
and see the green sunlight
breaking through the concrete
finding me
in my little box

I wait here
patiently
until it takes me home

River by Night

The night has come and bright stars fill the sky  

Arranged in lines and shapes from side to side  

And gently light the things and men along  

Creating moving shadows on the streets.  

 

The quiet river flows under the bridge  

And smell of fish is coming with the wind  

While burbling water hits below the shore  

Where boats are waiting for a new day’s dawn.

Release

I was in the arctic.
Those frozen forests of Alaska.
North of Fairbanks,
in the wild Yukon.

It was night,
and the moon shown,
on the white, bright snow.
Everything had a light, blue glow.

It was cold,
minus 60 degrees,
and I prayed to God,
for a sign to go.

I needed a change.
A new life, away.
And a way to go.
A way to escape,
that life I was in.

I no longer cared.
I no longer tr...

I Am Whatever You Want Me To Be

I sliced the sun into two

And looted shimmering bars of gold

Which lined her womb, 

Her beloved broods I stole. 

 

I plucked the sturdiest mountains, 

The choicest adornments on the face of the globe. 

All it took were my hands, raw and unrestrained, 

Their maimed rubbles now abuse those they adore.

 

I remember the sea that like Moses I parted

And the ocean floor ...

Landscape

entry picture

The different shapes of white and hasty clouds

Are letting see the blue and shiny sky

Just here and there and only for a bit

To show the sun is up and lights the day.

 

We see the rocky mountains spread around

With green and scattered spots all over them

That are from lonely trees among the stones

Like spears raised from the forest to the top.

 

Few groups of houses s...

Daffodils

Daffodils

 

As I walk my hour a day

A golden army line my way

Stood to attention tall and proud

Paraded together, a nodding crowd

 

Wild, strong and free they grow

Against stone walls and in hedgerow

Dancing and swaying in the breeze

Sheltering under the budding trees

 

A fanfare of trumpets, glowing bright

Dazzling rays in the spring sunlight

Elegant and ...

Bluebell Woods

 

 

Bluebell Woods

 

In the enchanted forest, far, far away

Rabbits dress in waistcoats and chat about their day

Fairies live in toadstools, deep in the wooded dell

They sing and dance to the chimes of the quivering bluebell

An Enid Blyton story, a fairy tale or dream

Or closer to the truth, than at first it would seem

 

Down in Bluebell Woods, which is not so far ...

The Pictures We Drew

entry picture

I wonder what happens

To the poorly drawn images

We keep abreast as children,

Sheltered inside our notebooks and their crinkly pages.

I envisage those pages accompanying

Balloons, bubbles and butterflies,

And the colors in them adorning

The sallow face of the sky.

I like to believe that my poorly chalked out blades of grass

Somehow appended the greenery on earth

Or th...

Camping Memories

entry picture

Oh how I loved to go camping 
in a tent in the back yard,
in the campgrounds of the Smokies, 
on the coast of Nova Scotia, 
with the Dories in Grand Canyon, 
in the Everglades of Florida,
wherever the places may be. 

Each trip was different, with its own adventures 
that brought a kaleidoscope of images,
a patchwork of memories.
each memory vivid and distinct,
of different times and p...

Our Earth

If there's one thing that we should love more, 
Which is there every day for us to adore,  
Around and round it has forever whirled. 
This our beautiful and natural world.

Love all of it's glorious features, 
And learn to love all living creatures. 
The plants and flowers of every colour 
Make our lives seem so much fuller.

The Sun shines down; it is always there, 
One thing that all ...

Wildflower Wishes

entry picture

Bury me in a blanket of wildflowers,

nutured by morning dew,

 

where lilacs perfume the air,

jasmine lights up the night,

wind and rain serenade gardenias,

delicate roses are protected by bushy thorns,

forget-me-nots bloom...

 

where dandelion wishes

brings me back to you.

REGRETS

REGRETS 


I ran so fast on the path of life,

I forgot from where I had started,

I remembered something suddenly, luckily,

That’s when and why I retarded. 
 
A brook, I fled by had asked to meet,

If eyes weren’t lucky, just to soak my feet…

I never turned back, Salmons tried a lot,

The weeds and the reeds, my eyes never caught. 
 
A cuckoo wanted to share her sorrow,

Starfish Haze

On the beach bits were sharp with old shells

Sand dry as dust cushioned our feet

In  a rock pool we saw the starfish

I'd never seen anything so neat

 

I've often thought of that creature

Its wonderful colourful ways

Moving at its own pace, shimmering,

In a mysterious starfish haze

 

Soon we saw another, from a family of gems

We stared and discussed Nature's pride

Forest Green

She's smart as a whip and shoots from the hip

She's calm in a crisis and clever

She's stronger than men and quick with a pen

She's wiser than Plato was ever

 

Forest Green. Forest Green, my sylvan lover

Take care not to get that one riled

She lives in the woods with all her goods

A creature of Nature, God's child

 

I was walking my dog on a day blunt with fog

Nature's Breath

 

Nature's Breath

 

In those days;
when the shutdown came.
When mankind laid low;
and the money didn’t flow.

In those days,
nature took a breath.
Nature began to heal.
Nature felt relief.

In those days,
the poisons stopped.
The greed died,
and the rich man cursed.

In those days,
the birds sang.
The butterflies flew.
The bumblebee worked.

In those days,

the send-off

the fragrance of flowers 

gently touched 

by the cemetery breeze

celebrate the silence 

of life being released

 

the colors of nature

gather around 

that piece of earth

cradling every moment

of time since birth

 

dark figures fade out

with memories 

replaying in their heads

as the day ends, yet again

death is fed

Illumination

occult curriculum, whispers of the ancients, leave for letting out secrets
oil lamp kindling catching flames; shining begotten light from passerbys
in between classes, shifting penrose stairs lead into underlying framework on occasion
halls lined with rooks adjacent and curators searching for a select
rites of secret passageways proclaimed, karma to the dark is just a means to an end

Into the Wild

The seeker seeks, the searcher finds,

    The adventurer travels around his own mind.

The winds that blow and storms that shout, 

    and rock both tree and bush about.

The wanderer carries a burning torch,

    To light his way with no remorse.

No solice does a watcher find,

    when seeking troubles in his own mind.

Cold hearts grow, lone spirits become strong,

Canyon Raven

We come as passing visitors on the rimrock of this vast abyss,
awed by ancient desert rocks with ever-changing hues.
We marvel at these stones laid down in tepid seas
before the dawn bird flew,
grandeur timeless, yet so transient.

A raven races up from the canyon with joyful croak,
like a goblin fresh on vacation from his work in Hell.
He arcs above, then plunges deep into the chasm

Purple Pill

I took both pills now I’m stuck in the Matrix, 
Aware of this reality yet struggling to shake it. 
Can’t fake it - feels too real,
Trying to find truth in amongst the spiel. 
But that’s life as we’ve been conditioned 
yet what do we choose? 
Can a sovereign body be abused? 
Or a spirit!
Or a soul! 

...

must the rabbit have a hole? 
I turned right at Albuquerque, now I’m in the zone....

Brick Roads

Ten years old,

gigging frogs,

avoiding horny toads. 

 

Then a teen,

in search of the wizard,

playing pinball, drinking, smoking. 

 

On to adulthood,

pushing back when anyone 

crossed the line. 

 

Now, 

doing time

with this karma of mine.

 

Traveling brick roads

that lead to

nowhere particular. 

 

But, as long as there is

Not all men are your enemy

Not all women are your friend

Forget the wars of pink and blue

The earth is near its end

 

Raise your weapons to fight for green

Sow your seeds

Plants, Flowers and trees

Whilst humans are fighting the earth bleeds.

 

We cut down the trees

To write words for our books

We kill the animals

Skin and eat for our looks

splendid resplendence

in your essence I sense resplendence
could do no wrong by me, your personably impressioned defendant
your honor is what I strive for
it's why the day turns to night, sun and moon argue back and forth
fight about what's wrong and who's right, tug of war
light bends but doesn't break, shines through the prism, and is perceived in different waves

the center of my world, I give you my due diligence
love to watch me write by candle light, would you guide my hand and evoke my true penmanship

groundbreaking truths shatter walls, somebody hand me my protractor

Matriarch butterfly, conduct conducive
mother gaia's demeanor echo.

as she size your shoe, electrifying presence

heart fluttering, don't be disheartened.

Clouds Dancing in the Sky

entry picture

Looking up at the clouds so high

Watching colors stretch across the sky

As they combine and spread apart gracefully

An ever-changing work of art slowly slips by

 

As the sun first wakes

Golden hues are painted on the tips

I’m struck by the beauty

How lucky I am to be a witness

 

As the sun slowly dances across the sky

The image changes as clouds come and go

29D: Window, not Aisle

entry picture

 

it’s 6:21 and when I look out my window from the corner of 29D, 

there’s a subtle hue of blood orange outlining what looks like the perimeter of 

a space

of sky

and a breeze of clouds, lighter than feathers, so thin, as if it forgot to carry the mist it was designed to pour tonight 

but that’s okay, because it found itself a new purpose:
