The Football Match

It’s raining all day!
The kids are playing football –
They just love to play!

Soccer Sucks

Soccer really sucks.
In real football they kick butt.
And what’s with the shorts?

Random thoughts **50** Haiku--Tanka--Haiku

5,7,5----5,7,5,7,7----5,7,5
For Linda Marie's Haiku--Tanka--Haiku contest....

Love for poetry,
savvy. This identity
loves controversy

Football and women,
conversation, love-making.
R & B, Reggae,
inspired meditation,
Four Tops, The Temptations

Taking vacations,
road trips across this nation..
Next stop, the ocean!!!

FOOTBALL FEVER


Football fever
World Cup Brazil;
Too many overnights breached


Imagine a world
Glued to football mania;
Morning red eyes syndrome


Now you've seen it all
Germany's got the gold;
Back to normal routines


Even my wife's up
Watching the final match;
TV and sleepy eyes


If only something
More tangible...
Can heal the world


Competitive sports
Winning smiles collect;
Losing tears regret


Bedtime at dawn
Wake up mid-afternoon;
Schedule gains off-side


Peace for now
Until the next World Cup;
Life minus football fever!


Just for a sporting change
For a short while,
Unruly world celebrates


In-between hostilities
Dazzling football magic;
Memorable milestones


In my dreams
Football in the net;
Goalkeeper dazed

                                                 still wearing Blue the same

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking pot. Stereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

Sunday afternoon

fried chicken is good
with rice and beans and butter
ice cold glass of tea
and some football action for me
