Brrrr…my Buddy! 

My Sun Conure , Mr. Bean, celebrating “Talk Like A Pirate Day” last year!

“Shiver Me Timbers!”
his mate Polly squawked on repeat…
“Avast!” old Jack cried!

No truer friend, she,
Willing to shiver, huddled
With me, ice fishing.

Their friendship was true
Growing deeper into love,
Two hearts a-flutter.

No More…


The increasing number of terrorist-driven tragedies has broken my heart. I do pray for the victims, their families…for our world that is becoming increasingly violent. And I also pray that my own heart will never become cold to the horror of such senseless violence. I pray for peace ultimately. I shall never cease to pray for peace…

News of yet another sorrow
Breaks my heart, already bleeding
Hope for peace, to death conceding
Left to fear the next tomorrow.

Hate infuses to the marrow
Hardened hearts that cease believing
News of yet another sorrow
Breaks my heart, already bleeding.

Horror lurches from the shadows
Evil lies in wait deceiving
Pawns emboldened do their bidding
Brazened hearts who blindly follow
News of yet another sorrow
Breaks my heart, already bleeding.

Thrice Mugged

A Mugga Mug is a real thing…see it here:

She was mugged, she cried
A guy with a scary mug
Snatched her mug of brew!

More Sadness…


Indoor Cat – A Haiku

For a single glimpse
Of squirrels or birds in flight
A predator waits.
