There once was a surfer named Ava
Who liked to annoy fish with each wava.
Till a whale came around
And it knocked her aground,
A lesson in how to behava....

Haiku No 37

Lone surfer rides waves
Steers through a rainbow sunrise
Crashed  - forgot sun shades.

Azure blue dazzling
Divided waters surging
A whale of a day.

Surfing the Gold Coast
Great White Sharks are a Gold Coast wonder
Though crocodiles may steal their thunder
But all surfers know
It is time to go 
When kangaroos line up Down Under

Surfer Catch Ocean Spray
Surfer Catch Ocean Spray

If surfer should catch some ocean spray,
Even though hair has been turning gray;
More mature,
Know for sure;
Hope to soon go to heaven to God pray....

Great Surfer Soon Became
Great Surfer Soon Became

Truly great surfer he soon became,
And was known for his wide acclaim;
Never did behave;
Became wave slave,
Along with all of his fortune and fame.

He never stopped preaching
About the color of my hair
So I kept right on bleaching
and now there's nothing there

Lone and cradle of bone
Alone I am in crowded cone
Phone is stay on the air
Amid of voices I hear thousands fear
Slough of golden serpent runs on sand of river
A stain - zigzag plays a game of dark as aloof surfer !

What I Love about the Lord
What I Love About the Lord

What I will always love about the Lord,
Is when he gave me a great surfboard;
Quickly sped;
Had hit my head;
Riding waves with it do look forward.

Premium Member Riding the Wave
Met a surfer today
  riding the crime wave
Ax-murderer that I am
  he went to a watery grave

I got away scot-free, of course
  police deparment being defunded
Chased me with a carousel horse
  Even I could outrun him...

The Surfer called Vir
I'm sinking into spring season
watching out for the sneeze
virus pirates, cell reavers
set sail, surfing on any breeze

Media frenzy
not much transparency
increasing the anxiety
If it's not fear, it's not their fancy

Frosty mornings
Winters here,
fill your lungs
with cold fresh
winter air.

the frosty morning
embrace, an icy
stink upon your face.

A silver surfer can be
traced. He's left an
icy wake.

carefully, walk with
patient footsteps...

Premium Member SURFER DUDE

when the pain is too much to bear
I close my eyes and picture
surfing the waves of my youth
the ocean sounds get louder
till the roar takes over
and makes me see how
the afterlife might be

Seagulls knife air, sailers tack,

I was surfing the Banzai Pipe
When the Backdoor opened like hype
A shark lurking there
Missed me by an hair
But my shorts sure needed a wipe! 

 Some say the Hawaiian island of O'ahu got its name
from the last words of a surfer who encountered a shark:
"Oh!  AH! oo")!...

Curving surf and plunging
Breakers  open up and and snarl over
And slap down closed,
Crest of breaker a jagged rim
Dripping long fangs of water
Before snapping shut,
And the surfer disappears
Threshing helplessly in the spume
Of the jaws and the foaming saliva.

Premium Member At The Seaside
A quiet 
but windy day 
at the seaside.

A family's out
in the morning sun;
one of the children
look for shells.

A surfer yonder
is riding the waves 
unceasingly splashing 
against the rocks
like a tossed grenade;

taking it all in
at daybreak
a lifeguard on duty

The Surfer
Gasping he sucked in deep
To breathe after made his survival complete
The wave rolled on and left him there
Riding the waves made it devil may care

The sun warmed him lying on his board
Another tick off the bucket list was scored
As he paddled to the distant shoreline
Feeling great and ready for the next item he’d find.

Wooly surfer
riding the shoulder, standing 
right with the movement
is my boy lil Wooly Dog
surfing waves on the rocking chair

coming in from the back
he holds his paws in place
as if pawing into the whitewash
getting ready to settle in

then barreling into the blanket
where it is cool and calm
with a nice breeze blowing over
he closes his eyes for a nap

The Social Network
Go into the Badlands.

Get your private screening.
See how the universe works.

Have a double dose of psych.
Bath in its sea of love,
Smell the enemy within.
The dark tower. 
The soul surfer.

In your warrior's way,
Embrace the den of thieves.

You'll feel pretty.

Now, get out of my room
Big city greens.
Anywhere but here,
Repo man.

Sad in California
Sitting here on lovely sand
Feeling like I'm drowning 
Staring off into the blue

To my left is the pale moon 
suffocating in the blue
of the sky 

To my right the surfer rests
Towel draped around his
He's old and ugly 

Sitting here and thinking how
I'd rather be at the hotel
Let it be known that, yes,
It is possible to be sad 
In California...

Perfection Born
I wrote so many
  in hope of one

A lyrical surfer
  his wave to come

One verse to ride,
  the search complete

And all eternity
  within my reach

As the quiet ended,
  in a thunderous roar

The wait was over,
  its message sure

All judgment past,
 and future scorned

A timeless present,
—perfection born

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2016)
