Fire Island Day Thirty One (last morning)

July 31, 2012

20120731-060436.jpg
10. Vacation’s last day/
Clouds line Eastern horizon:/
Blue skies otherwise/
#haiku

11. Sadness at leaving/
Hides excitement for starting/
The next part of life/
#haiku

12. Tomorrow’s sunrise/
Will observe me at my home/
Thinking of my life/
#haiku

13. Sunrises’ beauty/
Requires human observers/
People make beauty/
#haiku

28. Look within yourself/
For that which you seek without/
We are all equal/
#haiku

29. Perfection resides/
Not in the warm beach sunrise/
But the eyes that see/
#haiku

7/15/12

30. Heaven is living/
Within our realities/
Not others’ ideas/
#haiku

31. World so abundant/
We should all be surfeited/
Though then we’d lose wealth/
#haiku

32. Our humility/
Could make us so prosperous/
In a newer way/
#haiku

Fire Island Day Eleven

July 11, 2012

20120711-065953.jpg
18. Absolutely flat/
Bay reflects the iron sky/
Setting a new mood/
#haiku

19. Absence is presence/
The lack of waves and wind says/
Something bluster cannot/
#haiku

20. Why do I write here?/
I write because I have to/
I have words to share/
#haiku

21. Is writing Ego/
Or a noble endeavor?/
I may never know/
#haiku

22. Are these words wasted/
Sent off to oblivion/
Or do they matter?/
#haiku

23. Will they move readers/
To consider existence/
In some newer light/
#haiku

24. Or are the words lost/
Only bawdy graffiti/
Meant to annoy folks?/
#haiku

25. I think these poems/
Are like the sacred * whispers/
Meant for only some/
#haiku *wicked

26. Philosophical/
Musings on society/
Are Nonsense to most/
#haiku

27. My words: graffiti/
A quiet* cry from Ego/
To assert my life/
#haiku *wicked

28. Graffiti is lost/
Because it’s vandalism/
In “property’s world”/
#haiku

29. Twittering #haikus:/
Writing on rusted-shut doors/
Hoping to be read/
#haiku

30. I scribble like this/
To express my opinions/
Because they matter/
#haiku

31. My little #haikus/
Wether or not they are read/
Cast ideas out/
#haiku

32. Thank you for reading/
I write each of these for you/
& nobody else/
#haiku

Fire Island Day 10

July 10, 2012

20120710-071413.jpg
2. Life’s small surprises:/
Often the most important/
When looking backward/
#haiku

3. Important events/
The fullness of time recasts/
As meaningless things/
#haiku

4. “Being Completely”/
Means accepting any changes/
To narrative’s weight*/
#haiku *To story’s meaning

5. The stories we tell/
Contain meanings we cherish/
Others see others/
#haiku

6. Stories’ meanings tell/
The interpreter’s values/
Rarely any truth/
#haiku

7. The meanings you see/
Are merely your own values/
Not ultimate truth/
#haiku

8. “Ultimate Truth” lives/
Beyond where mortals* reside/
“Truth” is not for us/
#haiku *humans

9. If you are “certain”/
Remember that time’s fullness/
Reveals more to us/
#haiku

10. “More will be revealed”/
Means do your best for right now:/
Be ready to change/
#haiku

11. Humbly accepting/
That you were totally wrong/
Is how to evolve/
#haiku

12. The reason I write/
Is to try to develop/
Into something more/
#haiku

13. Learning my mistakes/
Creates a humbler me/
(Who might be happy)/
#haiku

14. Humility shows/
Happiness cannot carry/
Too much “Correctness”/
#haiku

15. Knowledge is Ego/
As much as it is a “fact:”/
We must distinguish/
#haiku

16. Escaping Ego,/
The social identity,/
Creates a new me/
#haiku

Fire Island Day Nine

July 9, 2012

20120709-063611.jpg
41. A choppy morning/
With the East’s steady headwind/
Promises nothing/
#haiku

42. Premonitions lack/
Empirical importance/
(Though satisfying)/
#haiku

43. Reality’s script/
Is never revealed to us/
We just play our parts/
#haiku

44. Good actors’ feelings/
Believable without fact/
Because they try hard/
#haiku

45. Interpreting lines/
Finding meaning’s dark shading/
Won’t predict the truth*/
#haiku
*Can’t tell the future

46. So without the script/
& authorial intent/
Just enjoy the show/
#haiku

47. Judge not the players/
Don’t compare people to books/
Simply admire life/
#haiku

48. Judgement satisfies:/
Binding Creation to tales/
We can understand/
#haiku

49. Though repeated, tides/
Are never identical/
Accept each anew/
#haiku

50. Don’t mask creation/
To fit mortal predictions/
(Stretch understanding)/
#haiku

51. My understanding/
Like ev’ry living human/
Is feeble at best/
#haiku

Speckled Sunrise

Morning disperses/
The night’s low cloudy ceiling/
Speckling Sunrise/
#haiku
