black and white landscape
a colony of penguins ~
standing and waddling

in the oceans depth  ~
lives a black and white giant
orca killer whale   ~

seal on an ice flow  ~
oblivious to danger  ~
head butting whale strikes

egg laid by female  ~
emperor penguin stands guard
female goes hunting  ~

not in Africa  ~
elephant and leopard seals
sea is their jungle ~

hourglass dolphins ~
smaller than a bottlenose
keen bow wave riders

home is in the air  ~
the wandering albatross
a ten foot wingspan

in the frozen south ~
a species of royal bird
the emperor penguin

the antarctic terns ~
fly over a silver dish
krill is on the menu

thick and warm white coat
a camouflaged artic fox
unseen in the snow ~

top of the food chain
carnivorous white giant
fearsome polar bear ~

Haiku- my abiding memory

      january cold
pure white snowflakes are falling-
            write winter poems

      february ice
hangs from the bare tree branches-
            walks in still nature

      march is a lion
harsh cold winds and ice warnings-
             planning my garden

      april and melting
rivers of snow on the street-
            dreaming of sweet spring

      may is a whisper
gentle breezes caress hair-
            I buy daffodils

      june and loud thunder
nature is washing my world-
             touch buds in garden

      july and the sun
my world is full of color-
            write flower verses

      august is lazy
oh the flowers are fading-
            I pen of decay

      september and rain
that is dripping from green leaves-
            walks in the deep woods

      october falling
descending orange beauty-
            poems of autumn

      november chills come
cold crisp winds and blowing storms-
            thinking of summer

      december stillness
waiting for snow to show up-
            I write christmas words

Haiku 29 Wind Snow

                                  wind snow – hard, cold, deep

                              creaking trees, sagging power lines

                                    sheets warm next to you

East Wind

Der Wind aus Osten
Treibt schon Schnee über das Land
Am späten Herbsttag

The wind from the east
Drifts already snow across the land
At late autumn day

Ya flota nieve a través de la tierra
En un día de otoño

HAIKU #1-14 (Taken from my files totaling 12,016 haiku, started in 2/9/06)

Ants red as wine                                      A black spider seem to own
dine on yellow nectar                                squatter's rights right on
from a juicy mango                                  our front porch.

Day of rain and                                         A quiet gentle breeze brought
zero visibility, then                                     thoughts of Belize and
pastel evening sky                                   New York's Hudson.

Morning draped in silk                                 Drenched from his walk
of white as we await snow                          a lone man sat basking on
and sleet and cold rain                             bench in sudden sunshine.

In dreariness of winter                               Driving home by night
my philodendron buds stands                      I fled the signal of a white
erect and frozen                                     hand hitchhiking.

Earth held in traction                                 In temp of one hundred
by glistening silver moon                             a black bird basked
full like a balloon                                      in my shadow.

Blond rabbit pregnant                                 In dark of night 
with spunk often visit and                           With full moon bright
side with the husband                                military copters all in a row.

A spider sleeps all day                                 In early morn my pen
then wake up and work                                poised like stillness of
at post twilight time                                  trees awaiting breeze.

Utopia's Slippery Slope Continuum

   Through dreamless trees of concrete

Blizzard in the Himalayas -- Revised

The wind howls across
Heavy snow buries the world

heavy snow buries, survive
a deep silence mourns

                                laying down for the nap 
                                 stretching out long 
                                 sleepy orange kitty 
                              snow sprinkles down 
                               paw prints all around
                                  kitty runs to hide 

                                 longing to get out
                            watching birds and squirrels 
                                  oh, no,  hot paws 

                            coming thru the trees
                                 lights turn on  
                               cat eyes shining 

                              look into the sky
                                 wild and free 
                          bobcat on mountain top 

                            moonlight stars twinkle 
                             prowling the night skies                            
                           morning light cat sleeps 

                             morning walking path
                               the sun gets in eyes
                             lingering heat cat sighs

Time to Make a Change

Winter gusts subside,
Pleasant sunlight pours inside,
Welcome after cold.

Snow and ice grow old.
This peek must be a promise.
Don't be a "Doubting Thomas".

Ice and snow must end.
Bitter winter we rescind!
Traded for warm light.

Sun a timely sight.
Nature's plan unfolds before
Spring can open doors.

Adirondacks Ode

Climb high these mountains
And meet cliffs of history
Snug against the moon

Cold lover's warm kiss
Caress each syllable of song
Love makes joy exist
Adirondacks mist
The milk of mothering trees 
Melted on morning's joy

Tongue lark the dark lakes
Water births of memory
Ego ice thin here 

The nation's blood lens
The red moon night, so pride stakes
Claim to fluid truth
The wind prowls the skin
Stirring leaves of memories
A breast dried of peace  

Algonquian trail
Footsteps eat the span of trees
Man is small in grief

The muskets torment
Fusion of mission and right
The north shrikes lament

And beg migrants gone
But wax wing they shun the sun
Bunting snow for life.

Old Mohawk glory
Gone when forest bare shivers
In castles of ice

Steel teeth scrape the rocks
And eat iron from the ore
Of greed, killing trees

Logging the green tongue
Of the sun's wealth of heat
For this new kingdom

Of civilized men
Performing barbaric feats
Distant from the den.

Dusk the Gilded Age
Of rage.like natives, all past
Diseased to the eye

A new dawn breaks song
And howls of joy claim again
The blessings of rain

Sceptered in the throat
Cities' diamonds of dew
Love of warblers note.

Love is eagle's joy
Climbing high against the breast
Peaking in delight.

Long Cold Winter


bitter wind blows stout
pelting icy snow crystals….
cold winter’s harsh thoughts


treed primate postures

Kananaskis is

Kananaskis is 
four-fifths a line of  haiku
Kananaskis is

With spring’s sudden warmth
serial avalanches thunder
one triggers the next 

Winter’s snow melting 
laughing, leaping, running to 
valley far below

Green slopes banded red
dying lodgepole pine,  memories	
of last year’s Chinook

Golden larch quivers	
as the first storm of winter
passes close tonight

As a boy, I came
to know this quiet valley 
father's special place 

Leaving highway to
where mountains reach to heaven
we drove the stone road

Fishing beaver ponds
dad came on bees, lost his specs 
on return  just bees

One night as we camp
a timberwolf comes to call
returns to dark night

On the upper lake
clouds mask the solar eclipse
but fish go crazy

One spring’s discovery
drawdown pools, teeming with trout 
who won’t touch anything

A five pound rainbow
beached chasing Peter’s lure
red stripe - jealousy

Late autumn, Lake B
big browns cruise downwind beaches
only we know where

A ski resort appears
wonderland needs paved roads
we protest in vain

Twenty years later
returning with my children
to an unknown place

If you slow to look
irate traffic leans on horns	
rushing to their lodge

My kids and I fish
a borrow pit now a“lake”
tourists' put and take

To a grizzly bear
roads are barriers wider	
than flooding rivers

Kananaskis is 
four-fifths a line of  haiku
Kananaskis is

        1         White silver crystals
                     winter coat over a garden bench
                     Summer dreams

        2        Outside the window
                    the virgin untouched purity
                    the snow is here


        3        Angels in the snow
                    White crystals flashes
                    The children excited

        4        Blue gray clouds
                    Yellow ring around the moon

Instead of the morning dew...

Winter's Wonderland

Walking past the park

Wings made with childlike passion

Angelic Image

       * * *


Whitened droplets

Falling from gray clouds above

Catch one on your tongue

        * * * 


White covers the ground

Trouble starting the blower

Shovel time...again

Chilled air on glass

Panes painted with icy hues

Scenes from Jack's palette.

Fall into winter, spring into summer

Glistening snow has covered the earth

when spring, rings in, it's like a re-birth,

color comes out everywhere,

the time for upcoming fairs

and yardsales, with items of great worth.

Shedding your skin, just like a sleek snake,

soon you can even jump in a lake,

'repeat the seasons of four,

just like a revolving door,

storing these memories, we all make.

Capricious Wind

Pushes moves objects
Carries flowers lovely scent 
Partner's rain snow sleet

Can touch can't be held
Presence not visibly seen
Complex paradox	

Cooling blowing force
Invincibly powerful 
Surfer's challenger

Nature's friend or foe
Unpredictable movement 
Storm's mischief maker

Breath of life cries out
Energy generated
Cycle continues

No Wonderland Winter

(just felt like doing it "blues" style!)

Snowflakes/Snow Snow Snow

falling on my “pane”
first snowflakes of the season
and more on the way


a tiny snowball   
once it gets started rolling 
it’s all-consuming

Jack Frost

near frosty windows
beaming carolers smiling.
but they don’t know jack

Snow Angel

lying in cold snow
arms out, moving up and down
signaling angels

Haiku snowflake

Snowflakes are falling,

white is all around your feet,

diamonds from the sky.

Make a snow angel,

chilly from your head to toe,

a winter imprint.

bundled up so well,
head home to have some coco,

winter has arrived.
