The Storm

The unmounted creature danced on the skies, And the sparks from its heels are all left behind. Prancing through clouds all over the world, And as it did leave them behind itself furled. Hopping ’neath stars and above all the earth Living life eternal — no dying, no birth. Playing all alone — secluded — […]

The River Turner

They lift the eagle through the air They gave the bees their drone They guide the dolphin through the sea They built the lion’s throne They painted monarchs black and gold They quench the rose’s thirst They lit the sun and kindled stars They make the geysers squirt They stir the colours of the sky […]

St. Valentine’s Trap?

Today’s the day when husbands fret And wonder what their wives to get To show their love with costly things Hearts of red and golden strings. Florists rake in quite the cash Bakers make the chocolate dash Stuffers stuff some record bears Jewellers cut more diamonds rare. Men run wild all over town Here and […]

Regan’s Birth

Two days ago, right after school, I came right home, and filled the pool. We found a leak, and scrapped that plan. Then moved upstairs. Two hours had spanned. Two hours more, and things were close. Out of the tub and to our posts. Just after six and out he came A little boy, Regan’s […]

Rodents, Birds, and Mastodons

I saw an army marching slowly o’er the hill With guns and cannons blaring enough to make one ill. Then they kept on coming, the valley they did fill. When I saw the soldiers, they were stranger still. Nine hundred six were el’phants with stars across their backs. Their ev’ry step that thundered made ev’ry […]

A Harvest of Love

All alone, yet there he was, knelt beside another. Speaking soft, touching slight, trying not to be a bother. Reaching out, screams of pain, in a way he felt so distant. Carry on, hold on more, it’s but another instant Hours drag on, the dusk is gone, and dawn begins to rise The stars now […]

Do It Unto the Least of These

He clasped the coal, still glowing red, from off his wooden floor And placed it back within the flame. A knock was at his door. T’was dark outside and very late, and the snow fell thick and hard. He knew not of a single soul who would trek across his yard. He cautiously stood from […]

The Wise Man

I threw away my fish one day, And walked behind a man. His steps were clear and deep and sure Upon the burning sand. He walked right by, spoke scant a word, But drew me still somehow. I followed close behind the man As wonder would allow. It wasn’t long before I saw The depth […]

Tokens of a Tired Man

There was a man of youth and such who wore the dress of teens, Of T-shirts, runners, baseball caps, and endless pairs of jeans. His skin was smooth; his hands were fresh, just dirty from some play. Energetic, so he was, and full of zest each day. His hair was wild, and quite untamed; his […]

Ode to Mary

Honey sweet, cotton soft, Snowy fair, mountain top, Ocean blue, angel song, Evening still, sunset long. Springtime red, summer green, Autumn cool, winter clean, Sunshine warm, coastal breeze, Maple shade, swaying trees. Blackened brown, hazel eyes, Snowy skin, quite the prize, Warming heart, thinking of, Never hurt, ever love.
