Golden-winged; setting up

a small bird skims
the ocean,
dipping into the blue
for bits of sustenance

~ Southern Caribbean Sea

setting up
for a Sunday jazz brunch
in the park—
overhead, the notes
of wild parakeets

~ Ft Lauderdale, Florida
—both in Atlas Poetica, #22, Summer 2015


  1. These two go so well together. I love the comparison/contrast in the second one, and the occult metaphor in the first! Thanks for sharing the bits of sustenance.

  2. These are lovely. The first one - so delicate. The second - so colorful and vibrant. And I agree: together they create a wonderful contrast.
