“You are too late,” Sea lion said to Polar bear, “the ice is gone, the fish moved on.”

Polar bear’s heart sank but he stretched a smile over the hunger pangs.

“I know,” he managed. “Berries are moving in. Good thing I’ve gone vegetarian.”

In Theory

“In theory,” she said,

“The world’s all you need it to be.”

“In theory,” he nodded,

“It is indeed already so.”

They slacked their thirst

As the hypothesis of plenty

Sprawled below them,

Undulating hope.

Relocate

Let your mind

Pull up stakes

From its old

Dusty space.

Let your heart

Relocate

To a wider

Warm place.

Open eyes

To new shores.

Plant ideas

Expand more.

Set in Stone

There are eons of old

Set in stone

Pressed in rock.

Do you hear them

Or not

Do you know

What you’re told

Can you feel part of all

That had gone

And which may

Or may not

Come along

To live on?

Glint and Shine

May the light

Spark the day

Glinting awe

On its way.

May the waves

Hug the sand

As your heart

Understands.

It’s a Zoo!

“It’s a zoo over there!”

She exclaimed. Out of breath.

Cheeks still red from the stairs

And the cold evening air.

“It’s a zoo in the store.

It’s a zoo in the park.

It’s a zoo … at the zoo,”

Her smile grew.

She cracked up.

Couldn’t stop.

Her delight

Only matched

By the first time she ‘got’

“Slipped my mind” meant forgot.

Seal Serenity

The repose of this seal makes me smile … The serene surrender to a nap, oblivious to walkers by; the wannabe-seals of the rocks behind; the temporary real-estate afforded by low tide; the breathing surf that must be humming onto sand; the calm potential for the world around.
