Pent up energy

Ten to the 26th watts

Energy from the sun

Harness the light

In one form

Harness a volcano

Cascading down

Smooth magma flows

Geothermal form

Energy of motion

Shower of particles

Active galactic nuclei

Whirling black holes

Petroleum and methane

Stored underground

Life cycle of dead plants

And  animals

Stretch the fabric of space

Another false sunrise

Life as we know it

Romantic and dangerous

Advertisements

Roots and stagnant water

Passing phenomenon. Geological times

New landscape with volcanic rock forms

Everywhere it’s puffing and steaming

Harvesting water a hurricane

Hidden crevasses all around

Visibility zero, a total whiteout

Methane gases rise in the atmosphere

Ends the Cretaceous time.  67 million years

Enveloped in an ash cloud

Gas and solid rocks spew out

Freakish creature in the ribbed sand

New kind of theropod.  Non-avian

Common ancestor of the first birds

Crash-landed on a mesa from the stars

The missing link, most primitive specimen

Small body, small claws and powerful arms

A raptor with few changes. A herbivore

Evidence of feathers if you explore

~~~~~~~~~

Mangrove swamp.  Long-lost environment

Leaves its signature in the sediment

Petroglyphs depict  a rich timeline

Where Ghost Estates now lie

Perfectly preserved covered in gold

Further courtyards to his abode

Blue, green, yellow, brown

Dark companion, how did you perform?

Color spectrum fades and melts

10acious creature, a quiet toast

Took all the bones and buried them here

Spectacular nature… Mother Earth

 

Monster Manual

 

Unusual creatures to mundane animals

And giant monsters of any type

Very large creatures like dragons and bigger

The Megalodon is a great white shark

Through the mist and rain goes the Beast of Gevaudan

A wolf – not a Lassie or Rin Tin Tin

In the cold, wet, damp conditions

Lives the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog

Creatures unknown to science like

the Giant Space Amoeba

Included are a few criptids –

Bigfoot, Yeti and La Chupacabra

Also monsters from other cultures

The Chiang-Shih, Preta, Rakshasa and Bhuta

Large, medium and small go the

 Con Rit, Kumo, Nure-Onna and Buso

Viscera Suckers, Abominations

Weird mad scientist creations

An upright guerilla, warm presence

Modly lurking in the distance

As big as a bear, but it wasn’t a bear

It had Neanderthal features

The next page, Deadly Oozes and Manticores

Noted under  the Asian Bestiaries

~~~~~~~~~~~~

The existence of a beast

gives me an eerie feeling

A potentially dangerous creature…

A hostile one of these things

From the Velociraptor

to a Carnivorous Kangaroo

And Fantastic Creatures

 like Mothman and Kaiju

Eeek!  Hairy, scaly, gooey 

 Claws, teeth, tail

Enlarged red eyes

  9 to 10 feet tall

~~~~~~~~~~

High five dude…

Real Talk (seriously)

Full injection turbocharge

See where the anomalies lie

Looks like a riddle

The meltdown is already under way

Launch a “swallow whole” attack

on Robots and Aliens

 Radioactive eyebeams

 and fiery breath

 High-powered Supernatural Foe

How you view yourself

Not a paranoid theory

They have abducted people

Therefore, Planetary Protection

It’s perfectly natural

We will  define the problem

 and build our own poison

And not be defeated by

 a Lion Bat Human Scorpion!

 

 

 

Sasquatch Island

Near the Cali/Nevada border

Sightings have been reported

Anecdotal story, of course

Where I never was before

A man in disguise?  Strange cries

– Darling, I thought you got deserted

Nearby hill of his habitat

He doesn’t want to interact

– You’re evil, seriously!

Flat foot, broad heel

Real or not real?

More slavish zombie than a friend

Bizarre marks left in the sand

In the world of the sublime

Disappeared into the wood line

Nothing there

He’s gone

He’s nothing

Hatred for non-humans

Your Journey

Uncaptured bubble 

Heading inward

Little by little 

Like porcelain and gilded metal

Down to the delta level…

“Mellow greetings”

~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Eas’ going and smooth

Second sight, déjà vu 

Plasticine…

Your colors seem to run into one another 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sat idly by 

…where was I….

For that instant 

Reframe my mind…

“Last wishes”

Your shadow on the sand
