summer with an S & starfish

i found a starfish
wanted to place him deeper
perfectly healthy

the diagnosis
remembered two bikinis
saving one life hey

i have bikini
mr mullet can go deep
saving starfish life

little boy stops me
angler wanted the starfish
not to save his life

he said they can’t live
washing ashore is not good
can’t leave their coral.

i say poppycock
only bikinis can save
starfish it seems.

sea sun swim splash
surfing shells sauna sip
suntan shower sleep

senora sundae
salmon swordfish strawberry
sandals shorts sup

The Lift

third floor please exit
shaking head no wrong floor
they keep motioning

no i want first
you will not fool me this time
“coming from the beach ?

well you’re dressed like it”
no i’m going TO the beach
you had two guesses

(if i’m going down
and my hair isn’t wind blown
and i am not wet)

“how long have you been
here” one year and four weeks
i talk in haiku .
`
Waterfall

i see you cutie
don’t have to bite my finger off
or jump for the bread

ducks are like dogs
see how close we can stand
wiggle our tails.
`
Speaking Of Tails

when i was supping
brother in law a dentist
dining on a tail

i was horrified
said hoping i wouldn’t see
a delicacy

fish was caught by moi
no one to blame but myself
husband who taught me.

Sunshine On My Shoulder Makes Me Sunburned

computer said zero
percent chance of rain until
seven p m

one thirty drizzling
on my toes very wet
raindrops sunglasses

clouds blowing fast
will stop in a few minutes
sunshine appears

  1. Great images. “sea sun swim splash surfing shells sauna sip suntan shower sleep. And everything else. Starfish, ye-es! Just found one this morning, Miss errinspelling. Two limbs missing. Dead. From what I’ve learned, once they make it to shore, they’re goners. Still a beautiful thought to put them back into the water, good person. I do with most of them. That way maybe they can die where they are supposed to die. Sad, Sad, but that’s nature. Have a great day! I know you will.
