mikey totally adorable

do you see more than just the little bird i am, the bright, sparkling eyes.
the feathers that are not. the ones where they should be.
do you see a being lost in your world. because his is a dream,
do you know i have a you.
i am here now, in this moment.
my history lives with me, but does not define me.
but it is why.
can you look into the envelope, strange and
inviting, reaching for knowledge
and accepting what it gives you.
can you go beyond the boundaries of your
perceived self,
and see

what am i

an ocean creature that swims below
or perhaps a flower that sings of so
many and infinite possibilities

splatter natter

splatter natter what world
creates that does not
appreciate the grandeur.

autumn orange graces

autumn orange graces
of green.
sunlight laughter
glad to be seen.

if love be

if love be what
we make it,so
take the hate
and let it go.


the bright
so grand upon
which i land.
my feet.

up on the palette

upon the palette
our creator
a world of gratitude,


my moving feet and racing
be still by beauty
not hard
to find.


our slumberdreams not
defined nor overtaken
by the shackles and the
finite of situational
our waking moments,
in reveries tinted
by the real,
but the real dreams
never muted.

we two see clouds

how goes our heartbeats, so goes the world

your love

your love
in droplets
gently caressing
the arid heart,
in need.

garage eagle moments

some moments
yet all are gone
too fast.
today is yesterday's
and tomorrow's

if you are asking yourself why...
i am a nocturnal primate
called an aye-aye.
i live in madagascar
and i am endangered, too.
that is why i introduce
myself to you.

the road

the road
and thinks not
of where why
or how
it is going.

a rose

i see you
a rose
by thorns
even if they
are unseen.

last summer roses

we are the last summer roses
as fall pushes in.
the sun bathes us
in glory...
so goes
our story.

a drift

if truth is set
adrift in
a sea of falsehoods,
it can still
find a
place to anchor.

winds and ice,
not very nice.
but mom and dad
make it not so bad.

she runs to flowers

she runs to flowers
swims among the
warm velvet petals
and  leaves of
green beauty,
and kind.
and so
a safe harbor,
she finds.

sweet metaphor
our worldly wonders...
and so much more.

clock, me stop

me stop
this time
so fast.
the seconds
feel like forever
so soon they
are past.
the moments
a montage
sweet being
into that
now just images
when inward,
me seeing.

the lull

the lull between wars,
when peace prevails.
by human nature,
will the peace
be assailed.

if for love i reached

how far
if for love
i reached.

life is a tree

loving care it needs
to flourish,
life must be nourished
so tenderly.

we swim the seas
our belugaland.
we raise our families
we make our stand,
our icy world,
is paradise.
people leave us

that would
be nice.
we just want to
hunt and play,
to live our lives
the belugaway
we are not cute
we are living whales,
so when you are in 
the arctic,
just say hello
then set sail.
