Ladybugs.
Scarlet Lily beetle. Corn snake. Newt.
Tomato. Hot sauce with a zip.
Wine go with meat. Ketchup on fries. Chili.
Fall leaves. Autumn time. Holly berries. Santa’s
red suit being pressed for Christmas.
Winnie the Poo bear’s shirt. Clifford the big dog. Elmo.
Remembering childhood wagon. Dog playing with Kong.
Sport jersey. Baseball stitches. Plastic cup for drinking.
Bushel of apples. Cherries. Strawberries. Cranberries. Berries.
Cardinal. Singing robin. Scarlet Ibis. Swimming angler fish.
Poison dart frogs. crafty foxes. Jumping kangaroo. Squirrel in
tree. A squid hunting an evening meal. Marching ants.
Rashes. Blood from a cut. Arteries. A pumping heart.
Lip stick on your cheek from aunt. Nail polish. Hair.
Words of passion. Love from Valentine’s Day. Danger. Warnings
of stormy weather ahead. Fire hydrant.
Fire engine coming to put out fires. Siren from police car
saying stop and pull over now.
Stop signs. Yield. Do Not Enter. First…

For the Love of Cod

Daybreak’s coming,
Bringing with it
Dark September squalls
On ominous clouds,
Raising the ire
Of white-tipped waves,
Foaming like rabid dogs

Still,
We push forward
To meet each punch:
Our nose to the wind;
Heads slightly bent
To shield our eyes
From the stinging salt spray

And between the crests and troughs –
Hanging on to the tots,
Our white-knuckled fingers
Straining –
We slip our lines
Into the fathoms below,
Hoping to satisfy our needs
Before winter’s arrival
