The Future is pregnant; nine months we must wait
Or so it does seem since the Future is late.
And we, the first sibling, are not sure what comes –
A brother who hits and makes racket on drums?
Or sister who cries and then lays blame on me?
Or either who turns out as nice as can be?
Be wary when Future is pregnant; its child
May turn out a monster or one nice and mild.

It’s Right Behind Him!

The poor bird!
About to be eaten –
Tree monster.



Fairy Dust Full Grown

A fairy
Took three leaps to cross;
Left stone trail.



Toothy Grin 

Cyclops opens mouth
To devour.

.The Hopeful Monster

A shower in the afternoon:
Some water for the grass,
A little puddle for the birds,
A streak upon my glass.

And then the little cloud moves on
With none to take its place.
And out again’s the summer sun –
A glare upon its face.

For little showers, I give thanks;
But floods are my desire.
One monster must another meet
For drought’s reign to expire.
