umbrella in paradise

just the two of us
asleep tropical island
sleep for the weary

tiny bites devour
only price you have to pay
immense happiness

animals hunger
we are not what’s for dinner
gull of sea above

unlike judy dench
dining three breakfasts a day
never a fry up

people stop and stare
no where else on earth you see
sheer delight within

john travolta lands
cat scratch fever at your door
biting your elbow

thanks for ocd
and the charming handsome prince
best man of all men

luck of the irish
a magical expression
destined happiness


the fish have shadows ,ducks have kung foo

bird sanctuary
butterflies and crabs run free
three crabs are swimming

thousands on the land
still running away from friends
four fish float downstream

racing fish by land
i think they’re going to win
first to the ocean

band practice cancelled
only five to six fishes
in three different groups

fish so very clear
easier seeing shadows
seagull siesta

one hour by sea
know you will not have to move
the fish still coming

middle of the stream
she rubs sunscreen on his back
before their long walk

declare and decree
couples walking everywhere
paired at two o clock

people sitting high
on the room in the middle
of two large hotels

ten thousand a night
september sand dollar lies
somewhere on the beach

quacking and kung foo
everybody was kung foo
and a big raccoon

man on the boardwalk
speaking of this to his wife
bird knows where to stand

i guarantee you
the seagull will catch a fish
before the man does

not even an inch
tadpoles zigzagging away
no destination

follow you upstream
seagull must have caught a fish
she has disappeared

bird in indoor pool
contemplating three feet deep
no life preserver


butterflies and dragonflies haiku

see you everywhere
butterflies and dragonflies
the dance of ballet

twenty to fifty
dragonflies fly at one time
on the same level

queen victoria
breezing around each other
mating waltz of love

should be holding sleeping masks
and the eyes have it

you all look alike
do you have the same feelings
marry brother’s wife

minuet minute
the manhattan of beaches
among the sea oats

“i bet if you give
that shark a big hug and kiss
it will stop Caleb”

“let’s go to the beach”
if you are not at the beach
why is there a shark

“cigars cigarettes”
most likely to not succeed
as a cigar girl

they would fire you
after first nanosecond
and who could blame them

two planes are flying
advertising the same time
one plane flies higher

the noisiest plane
selling geico and lobsters
neither one kosher

low flying seagulls
would you like to carry signs
it pays handsomely


just another day in paradise haiku

“oh think twice, it’s just
another day of you and
me in paradise”

seven birds sitting
white feathers of pampas grass
how much can you weigh

five seven feet tall
but you only like this one
flying on and off

jacuzzi jets hum
delightful wind of fifteen
cooling blue ripples

hotel reflections
twenty stories high next door
hula of palm trees

you can see clearly
even though it’s far away
a mirror image

duck feather floats by
he went swimming without you
but he will be back

beauty school dropout
when frankie valli appears
frankie avalon

everyone frankie
and everyone else jimmy
award for music

jimmy’s entourage
they’re three sunbathing beauties
even in the clouds

tomorrow’s request
“can’t take my eyes off of you”
“my eyes adored you”


“horses must be deaf
because you see so few of
them at concerts”
Gracie Allen

An Imminent Beheading

please reblog ,retweet #freeNimr

The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights released a statement Tuesday night urging Saudi Arabia to halt the execution of ‪Ali Mohammed al-Nimr‬ because he was “convicted for a crime reportedly committed as a child.” It is rare that a specific person’s specific case be the subject of such a statement.

The statement reads, “Any judgment imposing the death penalty upon persons who were children at the time of the offence, and their execution, are incompatible with Saudi Arabia’s international obligations.” It reminds Saudi Arabia that it is a party to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Because Ali’s trial was conducted unfairly, the UN OHCHR argues, “International law, accepted as binding by Saudi Arabia, provides that capital punishment may only be imposed following trials that comply with the most stringent requirements of fair trial and due process, or could otherwise be considered…

I only heard about the looming crucifixion (and planned beheading afterwards) of 21 year old Ali Mohammed al-Nimrof Saudi Arabia on Bill Maher’s show last night. This is horrible, by any stretch of the imagination although it becomes even worse when you learn the details of his 5 year detention for, apparently, nothing more than being a potential critic of the Saudi government…at worst
