Become the Swan

Example for my contest which is what I call a "Charlie-Quadku" (lol)

outside the shell 
the ugly duck 
without true heart... 
gets uglier
the ugliest 
of the ugly 
with a true heart... 
becomes the swan

Synecdoche of Predators


In the piles of wood, 
a lizard was nipped by the
tail with a stinger.


A pair of wide wings
flapping in the air swooped down
upon a serpent.


Fangs in the river
quietly waits for a prey, 
attacking the duck.

Cacophonous crow
Raucously robbing robins

Salivating snail
Predator of petunias
Duck delicacy

Sweet Spring surprises
Doe dining delicately
Nature nourishes

Hungry hawk hovers
Quiet quail quakes and quivers
Corn cover conceals

Spring duck
With no luck
 Was struck

  He fell 
From a shell
 What's to tell

Splendid Immersions

strawberries in cream
basking in the gold sunshine
a deep diving duck

into tall green grass
a crowded garden's fragrance
caught out in the rain

the blackness of night
twinkling stars surrounding all
the world lost in time

Chicken Duck Bird


seldom will I fly;
 my feathers only allow;
 me to walk and run

what am I a bird?
 look out duck run for cover;
 what’s my luck in this?

am I animal?
 could be vegetable or fish;
 what’s your wish CHICKEN?

Birds Now Flow South When Winter Comes Alas-

like the winter bird
often longing to be heard
I await the sounds
I await the sounds
of the deep swallows calling
robins and duck fly
on their way southward
winter winds comes it's now cold
now flow where it's warm

Tardy Bliss

it's the golden hour
young duck swimming afternoon
hard rain patters down

the sun yet shines on
duck revelry in late bath
green river frolic

drought endured so long
but blooms and smiles are coming
I've had days like this
