HAIKU OF THE DAY – 04102017


the lone pelican

perched on top of the trash can

posing for tourists.


These humans were trained

to “oooh” and “aaah” then feed him

all their table scraps


he stretches his wings

threat’ning to find a new perch

that might yield more snacks,


then, as if on cue,

the piece of bun tossed at him

quickly disappears.


the crowd seems amazed;

the pelican just looks bored.

this is his routine.


pacific sunsets

just seem to have more magic

than the ones back home.


man, what’s I that smell?!

smells like water, fish, and salt.

dude, that’s the ocean.
