beautiful sea and then haiku

all the shades of blue
clear, midnight aqua ,sunshine
paradise of blues

swaying with the wind
palm tree ,azalea, sea oat
tail feathered bird brains

duck offers pate’
hunter’s stew made of hunters
join duck for dinner

took an ugly turn
bernie madoff and isis
recipe next show

dine on the evil
peterson dessert parfait
drew scott and michael

a million palm trees
amazing ocean colors
happy birds chirping


sea above sea

light blue atop white
perfectly symmetrical
cotton clouds swimming

ocean in the sky
almost covering puffy clouds
above ocean

a nickel each time
asking is this jacuzzi
or baby pool

saying it’s warmer
sitting in the baby pool
seven adults

far enough away
you can hear the ocean
chirpy little palm birds

happily dancing
haiku waves reminding
seventeen syllables

Whocouldknowthen once
saying ” what isn’t a haiku
to you errin”

and Jeff “didn’t
understand comment it wasn’t
in form of haiku”

man who stopped
to pick me up noticed
i was having trouble breathing

he has a good eye
usually unperceptive
“you look wonderful”

roger over and
out, briefs “there are plenty
of first responders here”

look like a tourist
thought i was on vacation

seems like a good time
to see if mr. mullet
is catching any

for some reason
he has september and october
mixed up this year

not catching fish chat
“the preacher man was looking
for you and missed you”

conversion by the sea
and ye shall go to heaven
in a humvee


can’t catch a wave


a new expression
instead of saying break
can i copyright this

two men trying to surf
one looking at waves
like a mad scientist

surfing in the surf
never getting wet unless
you stumble and fall

he can’t catch a wave
trying to show off his skill
seeing with two eyes

although he has four
his glasses are a hindrance
in this deep water

just when you thought
it was safe to go in the water
three jelly fish

where is your drive thru
pink ribbon ring of onion
clearly see clear pink

question being
will fishermen catch a wave
only fish know for sure

only dry wave
worth catching is on your radio
waveless mattress


aqua aquarius

when the moon is in
another day at the beach
the seventh hour

sun glistening eyes
helicopter hovering
the twelfth hotel’s sky

in the distance
mr. mullet wonders why
you are getting smaller

walking backwards
only way to see dolphin
who catches any fish

bulldog understands
just like everyone here
pictures of the sunset

seagull swoops in front
giant black feather in sand
almost a peacock

uhnuh bird chirping
landing on swaying palm tree
on top of your head

this entire life
never knowing what makes this noise
sounds like uhnuh

Ottie sees bulldog
father falls on his bulldog
heated argument

he walked a long way
pictures of the sun setting
over the ocean

wife walks through silk creek
taking pictures of husband
on the other side

many people say
it’s alright you can go through
he is not aware

newlyweds kissing
colorfully matching white palms
dressed blue and white

no halloween warmth
the age of aquarius
seventy six high

“dawning of the age
then peace will guide the planets
love will steer the stars”

Age Of Aquarius

blue pupik (belly button) II


dress following
into the ocean so cannot
have peace and quiet

forget you were wearing
one hundred forty five
sandals on your toes

they took the twenty
before the lifeguard said to
leave them at his stand

no life guards in fall
leaving behind john’s chair
seeing him move two times

almost at the water
a man with new york accent
florescent trunks

“would you like tickets
for dinner and restaurants
tell me when you check out”

i am so confused
never seeing anyone
do this here before

telling him “FIFTY
YEARS if i live that long
i’m NEVER checking out”

then asking if i
would like to have one hundred
go hear vacation

i said i don’t drive
this is what he understand
not that i live here

blue pupik high tide
next to me she turns her back
eyes staring at me

before having time
to figure out if that’s her
the eyes tell you so


black hawk up

october again
when blackbird sits on blue rope
sipping pool chlorine

witnesses this year
two women who see this sight
so close to the sea

black hawk up purposely
flew into long stretching
year of dragon cloud

puff the magic dragon
they say he lived by the sea
can see whale’s tail

inside puff’s blowhole
those three swimming black minnows
think they were shadows

moist sand softening
fibromyalgia heaven
tempurpedic toes

kayak hasn’t moved
for many hours sea is calm
maybe an anchor

that’s a white seashell
tern, tern, tern , no not breadcrumbs
mr. tern, tern, tern

when you learn to play
C-dog will accompany
your flute with a howl

he may “tiptoe through
your tulips” while you play
his ukulele though

Byrds / Turn Turn Turn

“there is a season
a time to every purpose
swear it’s not too late”

the fairest of all skies


not one single cloud
baby blue sky surrounding
one mile to each side

telling second spring
purple babies top cacti
hot pink flowers pop

one white puffy cloud
slowly creeping behind
he will float all alone

diagonal fish
minnow in the making
swim slow see our city

swim fast see our jail
father’s expression with drive
slow see our city

this what jail bait means?
bait fish who swim too fast
will be sent to prison

they wiggle their tale
thanking for the atkins bars
no, thank-YOU they’re dry


on the way to paradise I


walk slowly seeing
on the way to paradise
squirrel tells you his tale

he can’t distinguish
between the two tails he has
but that’s quite alright

ducks enjoy cheez its
one applauds flapping her wings
who has a camera

then low tide appears
most beautiful sight in world
cabanas sukkahs

colorful umbrellas
cat on a raft ocean creek
no, a woman

dark black ponytail
back, standing up to her neck
pussycat profile

you silly one
a shark could just swim by you
they say that they wouldn’t

she’s all alone
crabs crawling under her toes
maryland and deviled

why am i watching
missing the beautiful sun
colors of the sea

as if the beach
isn’t beautiful enough
oleander pampass

someone plants flowers
how much can one’s eyes take in
resort of beauty


Duckie Bad Hair Day


feathers in the grass
cool wind is blowing hard
ducks lost their attire

forgotten cheez its
another flaw in their day
along with bad hair

hope you grow back fast
or you will need to become
coppertone duckies

in his mouth a rod
he holds this like a cigar
tragic beating heart

why is he chewing
now his wife has one too
oh heavenly pretzel

you fooled this fools eyes
also her heart of drumbeats
summon peaceful sea

tranquil quiet winds
listen to frolicking waves
symphony of seas
