Angel

Angel

The sun wasn’t shining as we walked along The limbs of trees hanging down To meet the others on the ground Reaching up, making walls Made by nature, big and tall The rays of sun did shine around On to my guardian angel on the ground Without her, where I’d be I don’t know But her kindness shined on through me to glow My guardian angel. Clearly you can see How the rays of kindness…

Hammer Down

Hammer Down

Hammer Down The sounds of the 101 North or South bound The engines working Howling as they go up hill They whine up As they go down it Loud are both lanes at the same time Big diesel sounds from a little tiny truck Yuk yuk yuk The motorcycles With no mufflers Cranking, shifting up Their just going by All day n all night Then the on ramp Going south Just behind the house When one of…

Bella

Bella   If you toss a stick She’s on it Lickedly split She won’t run unless you really throw it No pretend No tricking her Eyes always on it In with the stick Splash With a quick chomp of her teeth She’ll always brings it back Unless if it falls beneath a few kicks of her feet With the stick she’s back on the beach Dropping the stick Within your reach But only after she chews off a piece of the very…

Life on the North Coast

Life on the North Coast Here are some Of the things I like the most. To be reminded Just how majestic Compared to most The size and life Of the redwood tree The shape and size Of the mountainous terrain Enjoying the many Trails that cross them Pumping the blood Through my vain With a little Extra joy to see The smiling friendly People saying hello When we pass With honest regard Not kiss my…

Redwoods

Redwoods Redwoods Redwoods, redwoods so sad it is truly to see you become deadwoods. To go back in time to see you in your prime, I would if i could, yet alas that I cannot do. When I stand below you, how miniscule i do feel. Not by just your size or to the great heights to that of which you do rise, but merely the number of years it took you to grow. You…
