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

choreography
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 Gad About Town

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…

Schatzie's Earth Project

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

return again to central synagogue yom kippur haiku

errinspelling

`

must have wrong channel
“strolling through the park one day”
yom kippur service

and it isn’t may
then you realize a genius
central park new york

sitting down music
while you are strolling through aisles
catching inside joke

“it’s called erosion”
tennager says to mother
who is the rabbi

a great fear of planes
exactly the way i feel
long lost twin sister

look at the faces
everyone else on the plane
see they have no fear

“i took out my prayer
book and i started praying
like a maniac”

(instead of hotels
they should put prayer books on planes
every religion)

“pancakes and laughing
sun streaming through the window
perfect fakebooking”

“most important thing
is to be yourself unless
you can be batman”

“we are so pleased now
to invite our role models
forward from our school”

rabbis haiku too
hard for you to remember
ocd helpful

raised in a sandbox haiku

`
from ipanema
jobim flows through the boardwalk
you were walking by

ending as toe steps
you’re the only one clapping
turns around and smiles

sillies at the pool
apparently raised by wolves
radio blasting

two clueless women
i don’t have the glare for this
thirty more minutes

then they turn it off
wishing i was someone who
throws it in the pool

as you’re walking by
the girl from ipanema
to the lifeguard stand

just as you come back
a very very long song
because you walk slow

the sun in your eyes
cereal box covers eyes
other side rent me

6:30 sunshine
turning their music back on
four imbibers now

why turn it back on
of course it’s country music
really not the point

just two dumb couples
guy tries to stand on his head
attempt on chaise lounge

he rolls over now
landing on the ground laughing
not a fond farewell

apparently true
that alcohol will stop one
from hurting himself
