Eye Candy

nature’s eye candy

for winter weary bluesy souls

out on an easy breezy

sunday afternoon stroll

circle of life finally makes her rounds

budding and sprouting

shouting through colors

blossoming as they

take the reins from earth

blissfully in full control…

Flight of Fancy

“Lovely Day”  Holmes County, Ohio

Flight of Fancy

the sky was a stroke

of artistic genius from

baby blues with white

wispy cotton clouds that

found me daydreaming of

flying freely without you.

Job Kill

Job Kill

                                                                              on the prowl

in the jungles of

the working force

i slink, shimmering

sleek in my finest fur.

like a panther,  hungry

for days with no meat

nostrils flaring hunting

for the scent that appeals

to my qualifications

setting my sights on

my unsuspecting prey

coming in for the kill

pouncing when the moment

presents itself so that

i may bring down my kill

with proficient expertise

that will be beneficial

enough to sustain

my pride and i

so that I may set offside

keeping guard over the brood

as the golden burgundy sun rests

behind us when day softens

fading into obscure strokes of dusk

while I, fattened, from my kill

lay licking my chops

preening myself

swatting at flies with my

agitated, nervous, twitching tail

after I have wolfed down

my hunters first rights share

with instinctive gratification.

I will watch while the others feast

from the efforts of my

newly acquired job kill.

Bridge Out!

Bridge Out!

double dutch teal bridge

steel beams of rust stood tall

through the tests of time

skirting the roads of change,

she falls down a tumbling victim

of the age old cliché`

out with the old, in with the new

but you discover that you resent

this pretense protesting to the

intentional deafened ear of youth

because you realize

in time that will be you.
