Vineyard Verses

Jack-O-Lantern time

With the advent of fall comes a happy story.

To the permanent drawbridge

where the original drawbridge used to be.

To Butter-Scotch

is this Shetland pony on Main Street.


to be the last bird of summer.

Poem “” To a beautiful young predator

I heard neither screech or squawk.

To the Vineyard watermelon

a corn-buying trip to Morning Glory.

Vineyard Verses

as these two bask behind Windemere.

To Moxie, the Doberman

for the first available parking space.

To a Lady with Attitude

this half-built nest on Crystal Lake.

To a lover of peanuts

No ifs, ands, maybes, probablys or buts.

To East Chop nesters

are these nest-builders on Crystal Lake.

A nursery in the sky

is the osprey nest on the lights.

To an incubating osprey mom

it's hard to forget her intense glare.

New little ones at Quantapog

mom and dad guide six little ones to the pond.
