For As Long as I Live

Posted Tuesday 10th May 2011 at 02:16 by Francis Duggan
For as long as i live a memory to enjoy
Of Summers long ago in distant Lisnaboy
Above the old fields the dark swallows did fly
And the meadows scented sweet of the freshly mown hay of July
I may be ageing but my memories young remain
And in my flights of fancy i visit again
Old places embedded in my memory
Not hard to visualize the what used to be
The buzzings of the wild honeybees taking nectar from the flowers
That bloomed in the fields...

Planet Artic - Life at the Top of the World.

Posted Monday 9th May 2011 at 10:47 by Paulo Boute
I jsut read the book:

Planet Artic - Life at the Top of the World, by Wayne Lynch.
I'm quite impressed!!!
It is an excellent book - Very few times, I stayed so long watching every single picture of a book - the text is also very informative.
That is the kind of book that deserves to be read over and over from time to time.
I know that very few people can go there - I also know that very few books can give so much "taste" of the Artic like this...

Survival

A Poem by Judy Ponceby

Flighted wings spread wide,
Snapping on the downstroke,
Moving air, giving lift.

Scouring the land below,
Hunting hidden prey beneath,
Unaware it is being sought.

Heart pounding hard,
Rushing dive,
Crushing blow.

And so life cycles,
Eat or be eaten,
Live or die.

The Whippoorwill

Night Cries

by Judy Ponceby

Can you hear late at night
When the stars come out to play
That sad and lonesome call
Of a Whippoorwill in May?

Calling forlornly into the night
Waiting to hear from any other.
The heavens sparkle with somber light
As our Whippoorwill cries sadly for another.

And there from far afield we hear
The haunting echo of its mate.
Giving full-throat-ed voice to...

Bird Haikus

Posted Saturday 7th May 2011 at 04:31 by Jubz
I write poetry at Writer's Cafe, and thought I would post some of my bird Haikus here today.

Owl

Wise old barred owl
Floating by on silent wing
Capturing my soul.


Bluebird

Red-vested Bluebird
Quietly sitting up there
Searching for a home.



Heron

A Great Blue Heron
Standing tall upon a nest
Watching its young chicks.
