Naked Friends wrote:before there was Pride -
I remember the dark days -
police raided bars

where men would meet men,
we were dancing happily
bam lights on full blast

we forget that now
itís even cool to be gay
in the place I live

my longago love
is still here drinking his tea
and we smile at life

Touched beyond belief;
such powerful gay wisdom!
Your story gives hope ❤️🏳️‍🌈

Iíve outed myself
as someone pushing eighty;
outing never ends. :)

Our biggest nation,
founder Tap-Dancing Demons,
long in NationStates.

Most cultured nation
here: NinjitsUtopia -
comes as no surprise.

Whatís in the water?
A bundle? Rock? Dead body?
The waves canít shift it.

Undersea diver?
One day later itís still there
Mystery over

Who knew what it was
Standing up to ocean waves
A great mighty rock

Sleep is quite crucial
when it comes to being fit.
Goodnight, haiku folks!

Reserves of water
Around my home will be dry

June where have you gone
Please stay a moment longer
While I catch my breath

Climate change is rough-
especially for people
with decades to go
