fish have band, birds have choir and sharks play poker haiku

9/25/15

you are so tiny
jumping out of the water
from two feet away

when you turn around
to see the fish behind you
they make a circle

all at the same time
must be friday band practice
stop searching for shells

fish are excited
fisherman stopped to catch bait
in only one net

went back to fishing
because he caught so many
you can just reach down

she takes the photo
seventy birds singing songs
choir practice too

slowly following
fish back upstream to the pool
choreography

much needed practice
sound like baby chickadees
peeping from chicklets

when you’re almost back
to where the water’s waist deep
shark came two fridays

a group of fourteen
guy carrying a big stick
forgetting these guys

twenty feet apart
two women stand with leashes
long measuring stick

men holding notebooks
the water is two feet deep
girl dropped her iphone

watch her recover
in the fast moving water
lady with big stick

laughs as something crawls
who knows what they are doing
wet and giggling

albert the dachshund loves yoghurt

`
cute little dachshund
going potty on beach chairs
mother gives free reign

allowing him to
do whatever he wants to
kisses my fingers

and he was standing
right next to my pink flip flops
thank-you for finding

dog cannot tell time
he’s half an hour early
allowed after five

your secret is safe
mother likes to break the rules
an unwritten law

“if you know albert
like i know albert oh oh
oh what a dachshund”

speaking queen’s english
enjoys his parent’s yoghurt
and a good figure
