Categories: africa, animal, nature, water,


walking gracefully  ~
with a pendulum movement
a herd of giraffes   ~

the mass migration
crocodiles at the river
food for the taking

gazelles are running  ~
a hungry cheetah gives chase
speed is the winner  ~

a lone male lion  ~
approaches a sleeping pride
the battle begins  ~

an elephant herd  ~
arrive at the water hole
use trunks to cool down

a swarm of locusts
devouring vegetation
skeletal branches  ~

army on the move 
soldier ant battalion
have left a scorched earth

vultures in the trees  ~
animals weakened by thirst
death is imminent  ~

a downed buffalo  ~
lions watch as herd returns
bulls scatter the pride  ~

basking in cool mud
the african river horse
hippopotamus  ~

laughing hyenas  ~
find an unguarded carcass
scavengers feasting  ~

at the water hole  ~
animals quenching their thirst
alert for danger  ~

a crash of rhino  ~
hunted for their ivory
extinction looming  ~

a small antelope  ~
found on the African plains
cute looking dik dik  ~

the baobab tree  ~
silhouetted at sunset
african icon   ~

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

Your Eyes Are There

The tree stays empty
No bird no breeze no glow worm
The soil looks morose  

Dense clouds have gathered
On and around the grey tree
Blooms are comatose

Getting rid of frost
Only last night it blossomed
Into a fountain

Alas, to no end
No bird from your shrubbery
Winter in my breath

Up and underneath
This load of cloud with no face
Restlessness for rain

No, no more moaning
For I know your eyes are there
If not now, later

None knows how and when
Your pink pigeons smile and fly
My flame is orange

Broken Branch

Broken Branch
         by Amy Swanson, 2008

Winter-gray tree branch
       Hangs low, stricken by the storm
               Broken..but alive.

Save Us, Please

I watch a tree fall,
I see it topple downward...
"Oh my God," I call.

The land is clear cut,
the animals cannot hide...
protest for their side.

Money is their king,
gold, silver, and diamond rings...
ruthless land strippers.

We must save the trees,
I beg and plead for help, please!...
Together - a breeze.

Flussufer/Riverbank/Ribera-Eine alte Eiche/ An old Oak Tree/Un viejo Roble

Am Ufer des Flusses
Bevor die Sonne erlischt
Nur leichtes Gurgeln


At the river banks
Before the sun finally sets
Only a slight gurgle


A orillas del río 
Antes que el sol desaparece 
Sólo ligero gorgoteo 


Nur eine alte Eiche
Da hinter der Wegbiegung
Trotzte dem letzen Sturm


Only an old oak tree 
There behind the road bend  
Defied the last storm 


Sólo un viejo roble 
Detrás de la revuelta del camino
Desafió la última tormenta

In the tree of moon
Dream-filled dust of lust last night 
Now a rose of dawn

From dew and dust you
Give the path of moonlit life
The flowers in knife

Come, no further gloom
Let’s plant a tall tree before
We return to dust

Autumn kills all things
brings a world that's black and bare
spring was yesterday.

Leaves are fluttering
dancing through the whipping air
like a symphony.

Grass has died again
summer's heat has dried it out
green has turned to gray.

Raindrops splashing cold
rivers flowing full of mud
clouds are weighted full.

Winter's coming on
there's a dead tree on the lawn
fireplace has a glow.

Lightning In The Night

                                             Sky-to-land flashes,
                             Bright boughs clawing through blackness,
                                         Nude tree dives headfirst.

Categories: allegory, analogy,

the poet tree

writing is struggling
climbing through tangled branches
of octopus trees

and it riles the leaves
to try to do as you please
when you're not at ease

so to pair a phrase
in the tangled web they weave
be cool as you can

words are as number
just measure the tree lumber
each step of the way

       Time begins again 
       When I look at the birch tree 
       Playing with crayons

       Old tree in the yard

You leave me after we make love
Moonbeam falls 
A poet shares my sorrow

She coils him
Autumn waits

A love bruise
Wicked parrot
Season of rain


His words were diamonds
Wizard of love phrases 
He stole my garments


She offered her warm breasts
To her lover in winter night
Icy wind roared 


Two leaves are tangled
The tree meditates
He does not know our raptures


Words are lost
Glances weak
Glaciered infinity


My neighbour’s wife
Pulls me
To a sobbing counter


Sighs heavy, hidden moon
Moans, pleasures of the night  
Cruel kisses bleed 


She fell on my chest
By the dart of love


Hold on some more and hold on
Until the fire is put out
And he would close his eyes


I would wager
He would leave soon
With a trail of cinnabar


He was a noodle
As her eyes were nearly shut
And bottom of the sea sloshed


I had to hold her like a python
Brute yes I am, I couldn’t lose time
To be ambivalent


His tired legs staggered
He fell again on her bosom
God is so ungracious


Incredible cavern
Big black cat walks on curling passages
In search of snail trail


Last night’s sleep
Washed out 
My lover’s petting 


My husband’s ancient kiss
Fades away
Like charming baubles


A young man hid behind his shadow
At the edge of the river
My bath aroma seeped through his skull


My wife was parabolic
She could not make love
Before her voyage to comet


I can go down her slit
If the river gets more time
To watch my owl

Naked, Shivering

there… solitary
on the street corner she stands
naked, shivering

Note:  Sorry, but there's no mystery here There is a little oak tree on the street corner (I've taken photos of her since her leaves began to change colors) Then two days ago after a long, cold rain, all her leaves were gone!

It's January

I rise from my sleep
looking outside my window
a tree stands leafless 

Holding tight to life
each day's breath is heavier
each has a season

All Creatures Big and Small

In his wisdom God
Created all creatures with
Deep love and purpose


Beautiful bird perched
on tree limb under moon's glow
elegantly dressed


Clouds rest on tree tops
lumpy feather beds billow
horses graze in snow
Jan24, 2007


Proud bird perched so high
silently viewing the world
We await his song
Dec23, 2007


Sun and humming birds
mingle while rainbows arch high
drawing eyes skyward


Tiger baths his wounds
cold water soothes like medicine
he will fight again
October 1, 2007


In him peace abides
Little fellow young and free
God's true gift to me

A Tropical Portrait

                                                           canopy of blue
                                              adorned by white wispy clouds --
                                                          a heavenly day

                                                       palm tree sentinels
                                           watch ocean waves lap the shore --
                                                   white sand reveals shells

                                                        vibrant flora thrives
                                             shades of fuchsia, verdant green --
                                                          a paradise found

Southwest Landscapes

Five in the morning
Orange and red glow in the east
A new day is born

A single rain drop
Looks to be the final straw
Now the flood begins

Albuquerque view
Volcanoes on the mesa
Since the age of time

Once green and growing
Now brown and brittle and free
A Tumbleweed's life

With long floppy ears
And kangaroo backleg kicks
It roams the mesa

Bone dry arroyo
But when the rains fall heavy
A river runs wild

Blackened pine tree trunks
Struggling to regain life
Only time will tell

Blistering sunlight
Sheltered cove of solid rock
A sliver of shade

Multicolored hues
Cliffs of reds, browns, blacks, and whites
Southwestern landscape

Red rock formations
As far as the eye can see
And way back in time

Rocks piled upon rocks
Balanced precariously
Thousands of years now

Upright arms of green
Prickly needle point barbs
anchored in the sand

A typical day
Arid heat of one-o-eight
No humidity

All along the ridge
Patiently waiting for years
Arms lifted towards God

Two thousand years back
These cliffs were inhabited
Why did they all leave

Striated hillsides
In the land of enchantment
Navajo glory

Six-sided hogans
Grandfather's ancient design
Still in use today

Cemetery stones
No tree to provide them shade
What a sad, sad sight

Knarly old pine tree roots
Wrapped around an ancient stone
Holding on for life 

Fluffy white mountains
Filling up an azure sky
Will it rain today?

Dancing dust devils
Whirling twirling to the sound
Of the wind's music

Shimmering mirage
The desert laughs at the lost
Nature's cruelty
A dry washboard road
Miles out through the desert
A crystal blue lake

Manmade lake at damn
Stopping mother nature's flow
Do we have the right?

Upturned leaves on tree
Frantically waving in wind
Soon the rains will come

He rattled his tail
Demanding respect from all
We complied as one

Sun rises, sun sets
Twenty four hours are over
Accomplish anything?

Not a sound was heard
Footprints only in our wake
The desert winds sleep

Not a sound is heard
Footprints only in our wake
The desert winds sleep

The crunch of gravel
Undeveloped housing roads
Early morning walks

The smell of wood smoke
Memories of the Southwest
Couldn't help but smile

Warming in the sun
Like a lizard on a rock
What a view I had

Morning wakeup call
Bacon wafting through the house
Even I got up

Pollution puddle
Reflecting rainbow colors
Do we call that art?

New Mexico winds
Neither unseen nor unheard
Constantly blowing

calypso darting
peering through open windows
rufous hummingbird

an old gourd hanging
blowing gently in the breeze
its peach tree abode

this hummingbird has been hanging around all season, at first i thought it was simply due to the feedersafter doing some lawn maintenance today, i saw it entering a hollowed out gourd i put in my peach tree last summeri figure, s/he is now part of the estate, may as well give it a name: calypso.

Fall Opens the Door

Fall Opens the Door  (Haiku)

morning sun dapples
trees in a  polka-dot dress
shines soft green and light

chill hint of autumn
smells of summer, loam, and pause
visions of winter

sap returns from leaves
to store deep in the tree heart
yellow, red, orange, burnt

through a window -
blowing a perfect kiss

fragile as a poets love
silently holding on
