Barefoot in Georgia red mud
The earth struggling to fight back
In dryer times a victory
Barry A. Lanier



bBella's Fear

Death gurgling shrills and barks from
Bella, my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Elegance and energy transformed into fear
Trembling curled up in a dark corner of the room
Where obedience and agility serve no purpose
Somewhere her sweet, gentle nature vaporated
Together, we curled up, in the dark corner
And holding each other, rode out the storm
Barry A. Lanier



bBig Cricket

On the field looking for nine counting eleven
Why I must surely be, in baseball heaven
Running wildly through shaved clover
Counting number of balls over
What have I gotten myself into?
Armed with hickory swords
Hovering like snoot overlords
Taking off in offensive strides
Faces beaming with pride
What have I gotten myself into?
Playing bat and ball on the ground
Why this just doesn't seem sound
Sending enemy balls six to four
Running while pulling up drawers
What have I gotten myself into?
Shouting out 'an over'
Is is time to leave the clover
Pitcher delivers a leg break
Looks to me like a mistake
What have I gotten myself into?
Pass on real quick now to Fall
And please give me baseball
Tomorrow I'll return the ticket
Can't seem to fanthom this cricket
Barry A. Lanier




Walking out my back door, headed to the woods
Two bluebirds serenading in harmonious bliss
Walking into the forest border, a pair of bluejays
Dodging and screeching, thrilled by their dance
Deeper in toward the dense, cypress swamp
A parliament of owls conversing in rhythm
Between bare trees and cypress folds
Approaching a stream, staring breathless
A blue heron, frozen, statuesque in the run
Walking out of the forest back toward home
Crossing the border of a corn field and pasture
Hundreds of crows, cawing in clouds of cacophony
Confusion and misdirection, soon they left
As I was walking slowly back down the lane
In silence, knowing nothing, yet feeling everything
Barry A. Lanier
