At the Beach Atop a Pole

The Osprey, nesting,

cracked on creatively.

Built her nest

in rare remove

atop a high pole

made to hold

street lights

near the beach.


See her muddle

of cracked and sturdy

twigs: the chick

lording it –

going truly crackers

at whoever comes near.

My daughter noticing the nest came closer to take a photo and the chick had plenty to say about her invasion of space.

This is written for –

Quadrille #92: Take a crack at poeming.

They kiss the stage

the ballet slippers

of the dancer.


She leaps into

another world

much to our delight.


She is out of reach

and we can only dream.


They kiss the stage

the ballet slippers

of the dancers divine.

Middle-earth Quadrille for d’verse


Middle-earth Quadrille


I live not too far from the film set

of Middle-earth, north at Matamata.

And Tolkien would be amazed

at such a place: laid out at Matamata.


There’s the whole community


Peeping out from the green dunes.

A tourist Mecca: out at Matamata.
