Shanna Baldwin Moore, US

 

even the cave men hate it
Geico commercial
the little Aussi lizard
eating all the sacred Mo'o
Hawaiian gecko now extinct

 

 

early morning drive ...
a gate swinging open
at the graveyard
the old die hards out
cruizing their old haunts

 

 

when the wind blows
the spanish moss
catching my muse
the soft harmonics
of bamboo wind chimes

 

 

cowboy poet
rides the range
of madam Pele
overlooking the shores
of white water foam

 

 

the rose knows
the subtleties of dusk
a touch of mist
as the sun sets
her petals glow

 

 

her hands move gently
raindrops
through golden sunlight
bridging a rainbow
dance of the old ones
