A Massasauga Rattler Lazing On My Deck

August 21, 2013

A massasauga rattler lazing on my deck
Not supposed to be here but here she is
I know, I don’t suspect.

My rottie drew my attention to
A massasauga rattler there upon my deck
Hissing and rattling
Don’t mess with her — you bet!

Is this a massasauga rattler sleeping on my deck?

Splish, Splash Running Fast

October 22, 2012

Splish, splash
Running fast
Down the water
Chasing those that swim
So fast.

Escaping jaws chasing
There in water running fast.

No chance of catching
They are evading.

Then something changes
One is separated
Forced up
On slick wet grass.

Holy cow!
Catch a fish so big
Is what I did.

But the question is
What do I do with it now?
