Animal Poems

The animal kingdom is filled with almost an infinite variety of creatures. Scientists discover new species and sub species every year. Each one is a wonder onto itself and one could labor for years to uncover its secrets. It is an unfortunate fact that the closest that most of us get to wildlife is through bars at the zoo. Our urban lifestyle has the effect of cutting us off from the glorious world of the animal kingdom. Every animal has a lesson to teach us that we are not hearing. We may think that we have evolved away from contact with animal kingdom, the question is, at what cost?

With wings of deep sapphire blue
She …

Are There Pawprints In Heaven?

I hear of a place that is made of gold,
a place where we shall never grow old,
But one answer I have not heard at all,
will there be paw prints from my little dog?
He promised us joy …

who've spent their days waiting

for this self excavation,

dip, arch, circle,
agile, quick, deceitfully frail,
Is the delicate Art of the tiger Tail

I was born one day to the sunny sky;
The light was quite a surprise.
My mother fed me and kept me warm,
While I was small in size.

Horse and Rider Poem, The Lift

Hoofed feet steadily pound the ground,
furred perked ears carefully swivel round and round.
The wind whips by, masking any distracting sound.

A braided tail sways in the breeze,
