Knock knock



In this universe
every little ball of water
is a world unto its own
with time and space,
so quickly it can be gone
I have been a witness,
gone in minutes
calculations of size and time say
this little ball of water we call Earth
could be next
fight the final dream...

Dark Wings from Above

High above
Wings soar on high
With an eye
On your existence
Ever watchful
your moves noted
One to close
Brings dark wings from above.
Goose, Goose...Duck!

The Next Generation

Strong and always there
With time
The young must fly
A bit at a time
The next generation
will have their own burdens to bare
Somehow with out Mothers  guidance
 remember the words
Words of wisdom
 remember...and smile

Ruby in Evening Light

A Ruby in evening light
the wee sprite settles
to rest
after a day so long
to and fro to get through a night
Stay warm and rest
His task to bring bejewelled
interest to a garden already
so bright,
and a smile for me.
