08-28-15 Full Moon Haiku

The crazies are out
Everyone has gone insane
Lock yourself inside

08-27-15 Dropping Couplets

Forces of evil are at work
But love will save the day

Set the bad energies aside
Forget about the negatives

Lightning strikes too close
Burned out all the appliances

Lucky ducks across the canal
Hot days like this kick my ass

These politicians can kiss my ass
Freedom comes with a heavy price

08-26-15 Nighttime On The Farm

Cows sleep standing up
Sheep count themselves
Pigs are slopping in mud
Spiders spin beautiful webs

Until the rooster rises with the sunshine
Darkness dissolves into colorful light
Crowing out loud at the break of dawn

08-25-15 Crazy Summers When We Were Kids

Green trees on the lawn
Play ball in the afternoon
We really don't care at all
Hot sunshine exists for us
Surrender to the high order
Under the cover of darkness
Circus flow at the box office
Wild like impossible maniacs
The payoff was worth the wait
We were kings for a day every day

08-24-15 Ghosts Of Destruction

Waiting in the dark
Wandering through
The night alive

Killing ships
Potato chips
Tornado trips
Reality slips

Talk in shadows
Whispers of doom
Evil growing unchecked

08-23-15 Intergalactic Evolution At The Speed Of Life

spotlight shines brightest
colors inform the mood
vibrations linger in the air
support from the silver moon

stars illuminated in darkness
twinkling a million miles away
echoes of the universe sparkle
somewhere there is new life

08-22-15 Woodland Creatures Under The Stars

Turn it all around
Leave troubles behind
Driving on the highway
Up into the mountains
Through the tall trees
Winding in the cities
Unwinding in the country
Spiders spinning webs
Monster mosquito bites
Back to mother nature

08-21-15 Fantastic Cherry Soda Bubbles

The wizard will be here
In solid gold dust clouds
Floating in nightmares

Three octopuss astronauts
Hanging out on the moon
Melted cheese all over space

I'd love to live in a land of chocolate
With strawberry gumdrop rainstorms
Where I can finally get some peace

08-20-15 Misunderstood Sasquatch

Bigfoot lays down the law
At the right time to get up
But he's misunderstood
And it's no good
If you don't believe

Bigfoot somehow eats beef jerky
He seems to like how it tastes
And when he raids your camp site
He'll go for the cookies
But he ain't no Wookiee

08-19-15 New York City Heatwave Rave

Silver disco boots
Hit song on the radio
Hot city summer heat
Trash strike blackout

Dirty on the dance floor
Silent art show rejects rejoice
Black and white TV shows
Never miss another Sunday

Nighttime fires burning
Steamy passion in the street
Love scenes playing out loud
Yankees win again

08-18-15 When You're In Our Shoes

strange new eyes
changing perspectives
back into collective minds
push to the front of the line

we do the best we can
struggle through the waves
time well tell the truth
if we did the right thing

08-17-15 Crab Shack Feast

Enjoying ten pounds
Of delicious blue crab
Fresh from the water
Tender delicate meat

Peppered with Old Bay seasoning

Cool refreshment
On a steamy hot day
With a twist of lemon
Dipped in melted butter

08-16-15 Hanging Tuff In The Groove

Worn out burned down
Half a step slower tonight
Raged yesterday away
Ragged from battle scars

Another chapter written

Refuse to go down
Fight until the end
