there was a fifth and 100th anniversary beach haiku

`
dogs try to come close
masters allow them free reign
and also free rain

seagull sees tin foil
he likes lay’s potato chips
we like even more

heaven in the sand
december seventeenth
four days listening

and now monday
for the next eleven days
bikini christmas

seventy degrees
twenty first through thirty first
magical powers

two days in a row
dolphin appear just for us
when we mention them

kindness and goodness
beautifully fly off your tongue
happier than lark

because i’m a girl
just a little bit softer
playing on my ear

marguerita songs
love thousands of years ago
before birth of jews

thank-you for making
my father’s hundredth birthday
day to remember

every single day
happiness because of you
prince of all mankind

we have watched birdcage
three times today already
will there be a fourth

  1. To Be Human

    is to fall in love over and over,
    to never give up on any of them,
    to cry for the inhumanity, and try to
    overcome all that surrounds us by creating
    a closeness with those in proximity, both
    geographical and philosophical. It is to
    carry those loves in our heart, flooding our
    minds no matter how gone they are. And
    to put others’ needs first, understand their
    flaws, work on our own so we can be
    better helpers. It is to take it all in and
    follow our dreams no matter how preposterous;
    to pull apart another brown paper bag and
    to write it all out, no matter how choppy.
    So take my hand and make it all better
    before I repeat the painful parts until
    I can no longer act. To struggle past
    obstructions and obligations, self imposed and
    expected; to wallow in joy, build strength and
    change what we can for the better. To give.
