Lovely Summer Day I

~
“just one look at you
and the world’s alright with me”
it’s a lovely day

even though it’s pizza friday
in bitter ben’s world
thursday in ours

three months of pizza
and i’ve only had it once
in my birthday suit

” today i don’t feel
like doing anything
just want to lay in bed ”

banana boat flies
on a waveless ocean
like a waveless mattress

from now on i declare
it will rain four hours
before they say so

have just arrived
very dark but it’s not supposed
to rain until six

DJ always stands
how he gets his exercise
on taco friday

limbo contest
he’ll be out there in fifteen
although no one else here

this new
three kites floating parallel
to each other and one falls down

trying to fly
on top of each other
i knew call the CIA

hopping on pine needles
more and more tiny birds beat
“hey soul sister”

wind glorious wind
i love you more than ice cream
blow out the candle

” they’ve got the beat
they’ve got the beat they’ve got the beat
yeah they got the beat ”

no one played this
just popped into my head
some type of haiku music

“because i’m happy”
don’t bring me down condo
the fourth time is the charm

i know , i JUST moved
three times since i’ve had this site
tennis villa hails

pelicans prefer pecan pie

.
pairing pelicans
flying high to their love nest
glide over palm trees

kite flies above birds
” we’re gonna last forever ”
” best days of our life ”

want to jump the fence
see how the other half lives
he’ll bring back pictures

taste better nibbles
cabanas like Burn Notice
musical daylight

giant chess pieces
middle of saltwater pool
as tall as i am

on the oceanfront
six thousand dollars a week
princes send camels

south bound wagon wheels
things that you can do without
” any way you feel ”

let me count the ways
we don’t like country music
don’t ” rock me mamma ”

billy jean rocks you
” forty days and forty nights ”
M J white glove test

” stop and eat your hamburger
that’s what’s the matter with you
you’re hungry ”

as the rain pours down
in seventeen syllables
grandmother speaking

” Jake eat the burger
and then we will go dive in ”
silly little prune

the pool is like glass
they made a break for it
i have an umbrella

only passenger
gentleman dries red golf cart
your carriage awaits

.

summer kites champagne raccoons

red and blue circles
intertwining kite tails
circle each other

pirate voyage plane
too much action in the sky
flying above kite

parasailers float
“hot blooded check it and see”
playing hotel left

twin banana boats
do not stand between the signs
exit or enter

you are too cruel
if you play ” don’t be cruel”
again carolina girl

hot donna summer left
right side “don’t be cruel”
yesterday’s choices

donna summer wins
we “celebrated the times”
didn’t “back it up”

champagne five raccoons
will not celebrate on my
roof top anymore

nor hurricanes
entering through the baseball diamond
cutout in roof

bright green bobblehead
lizard bobbing head three times
every step he takes

chase your peanut butter
crackers with pretzel rod
nice hawaiian punch

Blue Jay

standing top pool shed
bossing me around
i don’t know what you’re saying


*
(lizard’s first appearance
since he was a baby
dancing poet mate

knowing three lizards
they’re all different colors
so we don’t get confused)

lizard royale

white stucco lizard
royal blue tail across wall
favorite color

between sea and pool
“you are the sun you are the”
lizard runs on fence

in time to music
he stops in certain places
running very fast

training as greyhound
flew in on air jamaica
he will catch rabbit

“every move you make”
running stopping and breathing
“i’ll be watching you”

nineteen seventies
why is every song they sing
in a time machine


(lizard was running
in beat to bar reggae band
both entertaining)

man without a country

sweet weather channel
every time it rains inside
every twelve seconds

just like last monday
another piece slips away
you did it again

saturday forecast
will never understand you
could have reached blue sea

dummy sitting here
shopping silicone lining
royal blue cookie sheets

amazon bakeware
hurricane winter pastry
emergency cakes

first task check weather
as a good little girl should
you’re not fooling me

high sixty seven
you say this at eleven
two p m is high

so why at five uhr
on the ten day forecast page
was SEVENTY THREE

at twelve twenty five
I could have gonE TO The BEACH
people shout haiku

four long months inside
aggravated by movers
every single day

moving in the snow
hurricane when i moved in
weather just hates me

in seven short days
buying vacation condo
renting to tourists

i’m glad i didn’t
waste time hiring a
management company

five minutes ago
realized i have to live there
molding glass ceiling

how can it not be
rained in all of december
raccoons keep tearing

it’s raining right now
have not thought about packing
can’t do that again

can you tell me why
d j ‘s play sad music
foggy and rainy out

PLAY BOOGIE FEVER
don’t play LIES OF HANDSOME MEN
need Brubeck’s take five

the sun just came out
heard that song for a year already
that’s enough

central synanogue , martin luther king, rabbi saperstein

Central Synagogue

it’s the jewish Glee
singing brings such happiness
always soul music

you haven’t lived
until you hear Neshama
band and green pastures
`
Neshama was grammy nominated and her father was an orthodox rabbi & composer of possibly five thousand songs. i never know what will happen next at central synagogue . they are firsts in everything. Rabbi Angela Buchdahl is the first asian american female ordained rabbi (2001) and cantor (1999).

both cantors ,Julia Katz and Rabbi Buchdahl, have the most beautiful voices you have ever heard.

someone made a joke about how getting jews to clap on two & four was an accomplishment, march 14th, by Reverend Roger Hambrick’s choir. i’ve never had that problem as a musician ,although clapping on shabbos by a conservative
is also an accomplishment.it wasn’t dark since the time changed. i doubt if anyone reading this knows what i’m saying at this point, but i am very thankful to be able to have you friday and saturday, because there is no such thing as conservative or orthodox streaming on shabbos.
one week it’s Martin Luther King shabbos.the next you may sing adon alom to a seventies sitcom song.my favorite is ya lalalala lo cho do di! and now jewish & baptist religions unite in song and a gospel choir sings
in hebrew. such wonderful music. there would be no war if everyone could pray or sing together.

Rabbi David Saperstein spoke in haiku on the night he visited:

“We Must Not Be Too Late”

“for arab and israeli
women who have lost
too many children”

“for children who don’t
have enough to eat in this
country of ours”

“for fifty year olds
who cannot find jobs
in this economy”

“for homeless on the
street for millions in poverty
in this country”

neshama, band and green pastures baptist church

jewish and baptist
coming together in song
uplifting hearts

neshama’s father
rabbi shlomo carlebach
composer of thousands

listening pleasure
where my soul was created
myrtle beach s c

neshama band
green pastures baptist church choir
reverend roger hambrick

singing together
hope to katrina victims
unite all people
