Dragonfly

Dragonflies are among my favorite insects.  Mainly because they feed on mosquitos.  There have been plenty of mosquitos this summer–just like in 2013, when this was written.

As dragonfly’s
Lives went
Life was good
As, good as
Life, could be

Frequent rainfall
And, an abundance
Of mosquitos
There’d been
A narrow escape
From a predator

This insectian
Acrobat, with
Eyes of
Turquoise blue
Paused, briefly
On a branch

Did dragonflies
Show emotions?
Because, this
Dragonfly, had
A grin, from
Ear-to-ear

Cumulonimbus

We’ve had a lot of storms lately, like four years ago, when this was written.

################

Streaked, time

Lapsed stars

Accented

Cumulonimbus

Cloud castles

That, bubbled

In a boiling

Mass, destined

For destruction

Torn apart

By, jagged

Flashes, of

Lightning

Released

Rain drops

In, hot

Humid

Summer

Night sky

The Mockettes (Mocking ‘Round the Clock)

Mocks rocked the treetop

Mocks mocked all day

Mocked all night long

Mock, mock, mocked

Then mocked

Some more

Mock, mock, mocked

Mocked ’round the clock

Woodpeckers knocked

They kept on mocking

The tree was rocking

Mockettes mocked on

‘Twas a fledgling thing

Junque Extraordinaire

I know, four years later, this picture was of Mr. Sherman’s collection of curiosities.  It’s a head-turner, every time I pass by.

It takes a
Sense of humor
Some craziness
More, than a
Smidgen, of
Zaniness

Marching, to
A different
Drummer, to
See hidden
Beauty, treasure
Mementos, under
The surface

Among
The whatnots
Thing-a-ma-jigs
Bric-a-brac
Beneath, the
Ordinary
Lies, the
Extraordinary

Mississippi Moonrise

Moonlit tidal flats set a mystic mood four years ago.

########

Orange-tinted moonlight
Reflected, in tidal flats
Bi-valves gulped, through
Holes in beach sand

Bullied, broken shells
Unattached, sand grains
Drifted, with each
Ingress and egress

Capricious, waters
Continued onslaught
Until sweet truces’
Final sigh
