Bird Bath Entertainment

birds in the fountain
splash
          flap
                 dunk
                         wiggle
their bathing rituals
make me           giggle

Backyard Battle

Our canine soldier
is always on guard
for invading lizards
in our backyard.

She patrols the fence,
checks every bush.
When she spots the enemy,
steer clear ...W-H-O-O-S-H!

Between her teeth
the trespasser dangles.
Look out lizards,
this dog mangles.

With pup on duty
it should be known,
our backyard is now
a lizard war zone!

Monsoon Musings

cicadas' steady thrum
hangs in the air
with the humidity


storm head
thunder competes
with my wind chimes


fat raindrops
pelt our roof
my favorite song
