Who wants to go to the Findhorn

slave labor program

dressed up as volunteering

that’s how they get you


come to the Findhorn

nine hour days in the kitchen

three, three hour shifts


tiny breaks between

use you until you are gray

you’re doing their jobs


grandfathers ask girls

go to the special sauna

these men stay for years


if you’re and old man

they’ll give you a tiny room

because you can’t work


they take  all money

make you so uncomfortable

to cause you to leave


they tell everyone

please don’t fly and use the train

everyone flies there


that is why no one

knows how to get to London

no one will help you


preach community

forty kilos in  luggage

no one helps you leave


no one can tell you

best train route back to London

you’ve asked for six months


no conversations

you are just supposed to work

until you’re burned out


they will interrupt

if you speak to anyone

to hide their secrets


narcissist women

name themselves Swan or Pixie

eating hamster food


you eat it also

the food keeps you very weak

work nine hour days


posh people complain

act like a five star hotel

want boiled eggs right now


you receive no pay

abused for the third trip here

they just use people


you come for lectures

spiritual community

only time for work


they make you share rooms

radiators are boiling

it’s freezing outside


virus from Findhorn

roommate wants window open

you could have died there







Dinner last night haiku


” to be defeated
opening can of tuna
would be terrible

that is why I like
preparing microwave meals
bip bop boom in bin

a few potatoes
a lot of mucking around
why the rich eat out

(And Then Breakfast)

big glossy effects
if you watch with the sound off
not much real substance”
(Blade Runner)

eight A M each day
essential leaf blower noise
isn’t essential

I am just waiting
for you to put sunscreen on
hand you can of beans

got rid of Bird Cage
Nicolas Cage is gone too
Bringing Out The Dead
(Amazon Prime Video Movies)

“they sneak apples in
why would anyone want this
maybe meat lovers”
(Quorn Veggie Sausages)


colorful kite choreography


celebrating times
come on roy g biv seven
kites flying above

tangled together
every color high and low
imitating birds

“shake it for the squirrels”
have to say what the devil
you stop for children

three feet on the side
when a squirrel is sleeping
you apply the brakes fast

apparent to all
receiving your license
Kmart blue light special

“they had splitters on
splitters on splitters
wonder they didn’t burn down”

“hey man do you need
any help it was my grandson
that injured him”

grandfather speaking
his haiku thoughts make me forget
thoughts from last night

he was reading news
reminding him of wife’s parents
their dumb splitters

i break for haiku
people always interrupt
thoughts of kite story


the weary wireless

even though it’s haiku february  and i woke up with haiku in my head,i don’t feel like turning the following morning mishegas into a haiku. i am plum tuckered out. i may not be able to answer because the computer will not stay connected.the electricity went off and gives me ptsd… cannot breathe when the temp. goes under 70 and the reason i left maryland last year for florida for the winter.the year before there was 2 feet of snow.the electricity went off ,for 2 days, so i had to camp on the sofa in the club room, next to the fireplace. crazy people who didn’t go to hotels,kept coming in trying to charge their phones and make coffee, asking if i needed anything .neither happened.when summer came ,the electricity went off again one day and people found out one mall had electricity . i spent 9 hours ,on the sofa in the lounge of nieman marcus. again , all anyone cared about was coming in to charge their phones.all day, i coughed all day and watched eyes searching for outlets.every outlet in the mall was filled by phones.

so today  the electricity went off.with only 3 people in this condo,i wondered if anyone was even here to tell anyone or playing golf.luckily after 30 minutes it came back on….then the wireless wouldn’t work, for 2 hours…should i go move the clothes, towels ,sheets and everything else off the suitcases and find the aol extension chords….but i should have looked at the phone first. there are no outlets. the wiring is in the walls…..

(finally a haiku)

pink rose petals

deliver color and happiness

brighten dark day.


new year’s week tv haiku’s

written mostly by the neighbors, family guy and
wedding band:

“cocoa represents

the soul of a woman” while

sports the soul of man

(no fashion sense)

“i don’t want to dress

myself.i don’t want you to

dress yourself either ”

(the neighbors)

“we named those greedy

little monkeys, we can do

whatever we want”

(family guy:stewie to lois)

“just hang it up why

do you have to narrate

everything that you do”.

king of queens haiku or ocd

(doug & carey, doug & carey)
king of queens

not to be confused with an all in the family episode of kings of queens of spades, but that’s an entirely different story, hopefully of long ago…

Taunting silly rhyme

repetitive songs flock mind

slumber never comes.
