BAD HAIKU - Horrible poetry for the digital age

small islands exist
in the insanity of
a time to go to

Svalbard anyone?

My ocean treasures:
Lighters, diapers, plastic bags, stryofoam cups, plastic bottles, batteries, sandles, motor oil and antifreeze containers, sunglasses, chips and other junk food bags, a large suitcase full of meth and cash sealed in ziploc bags and duct tape, cigarette butts, lost t-shirts, and shreds of fishing nets.

I have stopped counting due to the fact that throughout the day I often find myself counting the silly bulls (sic) plodding through my mind and it was kind of making me crazy. So I said, "enough of this shite!" and now I do not count and I feel there is a great freedom in not following these rules.

Tampons in the ocean.
Diapers oozing gel and baby shit.
Ramen cups and plastic spoons.
This is wrong.
Die, humans, die.

MY ancestors are
from the Tribe of Danu but
that sounds so Star Trek...

Mabinogion
from the planet of Eire
vs. the One Eyed Tribes

time twists fact into
legends, the mystery
is what happened then

All sleep playfully
Gifts of love of love long lost
All sleep disturbed

Searching in peace time
Kindred souls in front of joy
Money spent softly

Repeating answers
Naked skin rising slowly
Children laugh cheerful

Pictures in summer
Treasure trove inside my mind
Ending of summer

Eating of fire
Hidden smile is always true
Lament of today

Sunshine beams freely
Quiet gust is hypnotized
Grumble of futures

Dreaming of lovers
Turn away without support
Approve of winter

Progressing laughter
Silver lines ahead of time
Silence falls nothing

Avoiding countries
Paradise restores balance
Silence of ages

Invoking creatures
Empty bes on dual sides
Fields wave without fear

Flourish in between
Playful jests of gifts received
Mountains reach swiftly

Resenting mountain
Tender hug resigned to fate
Control without end

Flowers wave on top
Melodies of lovers thoughts
Owl flies softly still

Sharing om the ice
Bird of prey now understands
Night falls in shadows

Blossoms of fire
Tender hug escaping
Signals after rain fast

Symbols in my mind
A true friend answers to none
Grimace of autumn
