White Throated Sparrow

Listen closely in the Spring
and summer in woodland areas
you will hear the White Throated Sparrow's call
"Sweet Canada Canada Canada"

The Cleaner

Above all that is life
Soars the Cleaner
Silent, nary a wing beat
Quietly removing
The blemishes on our perfect world
Natures custodian
a sanitized nature, so perfect to the eye 
How false we are
To expect the same in our human existence
Our Cleaner just might smite us all

The Ripples in Life

Its the ripples
That send you to the life
You accept
Have your paddle at the ready
Just in case your ripple
Sends you upon the rocks
Ripples run free
with no determination
Its your paddle

The Sun Will Always Rise Again

Even The Darkest Night Will End
And The Sun Will Rise

A Rose Passed On

The Rose
The consummate sign of love
Why is it
that I always find so much
interest in the cut Rose last days
The bouquet a week old
always peeks my photographic
So much more to see
or maybe I'm just a bit off kilter?
