Memorial Day

A lone sentinel
Marches his post back and forth
As long as we live

Fair damsel’s toilette
Her freshly applied lipstick
Mouth pursed for a kiss

Just looking around
Nothing of int’rest to me
‘Til you pick it up

Out behind a church
Forgotten remembrance
Stand tall and lonely

Architects gone bad
Have they had too much to drink?
Sure build ‘em funny

Ducklings 7

Put your right foot out
Then you shake it all about
We do the duck dance

In sleek new buses
Find the freedom to travel
Ride rather than walk

Vast expanse of sky
Movie screen to watch the clouds
Scurry to the night

Cherry blossoms bloom
Flag flies high in a strong breeze
Our proud heritage

No scuba gear is needed
You visit, we stay

Daffodils 8

Bevy of beauties
Vying for our attention
Crowd the earthen stage

For lease yet the lights are on
Maybe no one’s home

Squirrel Debris

Pine tree restaurant
Left table scraps on the ground
Such messy eaters

Harpswell Haze*

The Iris (16)
Lilac fleur-de-lis
Heralds summer’s arrival
I hear cicadas

Sea World 14

Follow the leader
At least for a little while
Until distracted

Saturday, May 15, 2010


Alone and forlorn
Cheer up my dear buttercup
For that will soon change

Cathedral Square Market 1*

The old square revivified
Not much business yet

Blue Seas

Eddy’s from fantail
Bubbles churn and float away
Foam soon forgotten

Loop the Loop*

The Iris (28)
With stately grandeur
A no nonsense attitude
All about business

You see us arrayed
Can’t tell one from the other
Oh, but we sure can

Ducklings 16

Shall we play a game?
It’s called follow the leader
Guess who will be first

A day set aside
In honor of our mothers
This one’s for you, mom

Friendship shared twixt earth and sky
Till we meet again

In frilly coyness
A demure attracting glance
Come hither sweetness

In a school or not
For no fish is an island
Never roams alone

Honored in many places
Viva Mexico

Last one is a rotten bus
I’m faster than you

Nature has intelligence
If we can but see

The glass always full
Many possibilities
Are available

Black Butterfly Fish 1

Fish hover breathless
To watch people in tank
Of their own devise
