serendipitous haiku by my love

~

” a lot of cats
looked like that cat for a reason
he was their father

didn’t understand
I was understanding him
understanding you

it’s a classic thing
people have in the afternoon
cream tea and a scone

I’ve had a complete
new perspective on the place
bit of nostalgia

the flattest ocean
I’ve ever seen in my life
guy on a surfboard

they all think they’re in
a commercial and they don’t
even realize it

they looked at us like
we had just broken into
alcatraz prison

it’s one thing talking
it’s another thing ranting
they are quite different

you won’t be able
to get clean air anywhere
on this planet soon

you look at the dog
and tell me it’s my fault
you think he is cute

people are trying
to get out of london and
brighton’s a target

seem to be losing
the ability to speak
in my own accent

i’m starting to do
this weird thing smiling at dogs
i do not like it

we’re all going to die
not very useful in a
hurricane is it

you need to balance
make people responsible
with not panicking

when they start to kiss
the feet of the empty chair
know it’s time to go”

  1. “they looked at us like

    alcatraz prison

    Loved that stanza, and also
    “i’m starting to do
    this weird thing smiling at dogs
    i do not like it”

    I laughed out loud. What a funny, insightful poem. Thank you so much for it. It made me happy…

  2. Excellent. 🙂

    We still have clean air in our part of Canada – comes with a bear in the backyard screened veranda and bear poo near the front door. It was a very bear season with some berry less bushes.
