Heaven’s DJ {Haiku Friday}

Haiku Friday

The bartender’s voice

Announces the hour and you

Spin one more dance groove.

Glasses raised high, they

Toast your entertainment, with a

Tumbler of the GOOSE.

Even as your light

dims, Your life still sparkles in

neon and backbeats.

Your music muted.

There will never be

Another quite like you now.


On December 10th I said goodbye to my baby brother at the tender (and very unfair) age of 34.

This is the first of many, many, many writings I know will come out of my grief.

My brother was a pharmaceutical rep by day and DJ Benny Beats by night.

His one true wish, his dream was to entertain the masses.

Thank you for letting me share a small piece of him here.

RIP my beautiful baby brother
