If there’s no God, I die, my atoms disappear
Like bubbles blown and frantic to escape their ring.
Wind takes them by the hand – “Let’s run away from here!
Let’s go somewhere and find another song to sing!” 

And when I’m gone, perhaps my poems will linger on;
My children with their children and then theirs – a chain;
Or some good deed will swim within my wake – a swan,
Until the sun grows old, expands, and naught remains. 

If there’s no God, I live my life upon the sand.
I leave my print; I have a heavy present weight.
And I reflect upon my life and think it’s grand.
But when I die, it’s like I never left the gate. 

If there’s no God, then soon or late there is no me.
The sand along my beach is smoothed, impression free.

Two Swans a’Swimming

Pair of swans
Making a V-line
To the shore.

Shorebirds

Ev’ryone
Out of the water!
Sharks spotted.

Geese Sound Off

Can’t you see?
Traffic is heavy.
Yes, we honk.

And No Breakfast, Either!

I protest!
Life is just one long
Bad hair day!

Flamingo Courtship

I’m pretty?
Now you’ve made me blush –
Forever.

Pond Princess

Of them all,
Who’s the fairest one
O mirror?
