Ragged Glory

A Monarch
 Regal aloft in the sky
Now grounded late this season
Once dancing in the garden
Only to enjoy sunshine and warmth
For one last day
Flight has been taken away
Held high to the sky
One last look
South will not come
May the warmth of touch
And appreciation bring her solace

Summers Past

Summer Past
Daylight grows short
Evening warmth is fleeting
Essential for life
 Short supply
Photosynthesis stalls
Raise the alarm
Scarlet red
With a last breath
I ask....

Bush Tiger

The Chipmunk
He's not Alvin!
In the garden he is destructive
and we take him out!
At the fishing camp
we feed him peanuts
He is a Bush Tiger
as my Pop called him.

Boogie Woogie Neglected

A trip to the dump today
to unleash myself of so much junk
flotsam and jetsam
poured overboard..
What is that? she caught my eye
a Boogie Woogie queen from the past
She was disheveled and in much trauma
beyond repair
I hope these images will give her
a legacy and some peace
never forget to Boogie!
