Let sleeping sleepers
Lie asleep - do not wake them!
With the beep. Snooze on.

When one gets older,
Sleep is a waste of your time;
Every hour counts!

Knee deep in DooM rooms
Time disappears, forget my
Haikus for a day

I took a step once
And ended up somewhere strange
Don't know where it was

They say watch your step
But steps aren't that fun to watch
So I watch others

And time runs away
So I watch my watch, and step
With a watcher's eye

Until I am lost
But I quite like it, life is
Full of surprises

Sailing without mast or rig

A haiku a day,
Is never far away I
Wonder what I'll say...

When morning light greets!
And I'm up on light feet with
Eyes like grizzled clay...

Head full of ideas
Yet my body can't keep up!
My mind runs away...

Back into slumber
I fall and grow dumber, but
Sleep is not all

Waste, life is not all
Haste, how I spend my days is
Always to chase bliss

All infinity,
Contained in a brief moment,
is how we began.

Every particle
Of everything that is,
is all connected.

We are all the same,
Beyond race, beyond beliefs:
Cosmic brotherhood.

Idle days bend for
the future. Melted snow shows
the way down the street.

Because a smile is the best

Laugh, and the world laughs;
Cry, and they will prescribe you
Drugs to numb your soul.

The world laughs back at you! Let

Time spent staring at
a wall. My future has old
paintings, a bookcase.

On the squall they crawl,
Seeking crumbs to eat and meet
To talk and gawk these

Seagulls, awfully
Vindictive, and easily
Humored, I wish they

Stayed with sea and wind
And left my lunch to me and
Then, we'd be at peace

Sinking in muddy
earth, I face the sun's soft gaze
from a greater depth.

Demons chase away
The monsters under my bed
Holding concerts long

Waking up the dead
Running their godawful songs
Until there's only

Zombies, living on
When we all are rid and gone
Down under my bed

Peaches, plums and perch
On the back porch by the birch
Sunny summer days...

I woke up weary
And bleary-eyed, but why? I
Don't drink or do drugs

Or anything else
Rumbunctional, I'm normal;
Fully functional

Must have been a dose
Late computer woes over
Times I always chose

Clicking and typing,
my computer has become
my master and slave.

Within its dark shell,
It does all of my bidding,
Without questioning.

Programs and data,
mine to command, build, destroy...
A god in a box.

Yet when its asleep,
Deep in digital slumber,
I am powerless.

The question arises:
Who really needs who more now?
I don't want to know...

The computers they
Help us solve all problems we
Did not have before

Like a door into
The future, their sockets are
Wonder what's in store

They used to be fun
When they were one, but now they're
Becoming more; more

Like we are at war
I try to shut them down, they
Keep me up for sure

I can't seem to shut
Off, work in my head loft is
Driving me mad up

The walls, like sand dust
It seeps through my pores, more and
More, it rains, it pours

I'm sorting through drawers
I'm running AWOL, so small
Yet so frustrating

Monday has arrived;
With one eye open I wait
What Murphy's law brings.

Solitude's pretense
plagues me. Passersby peak in;
I'm out of my mind.

Repeating silly actions

Standing on shoulders
of giants hurts when their backs
are rife with sharp thorns.
