of shadows and sand

Sometimes I'm a shadow and the sea is not much more.
Sometimes I write haiku because it comes on the breeze.
pillows of sea foam--
rainbow sparks until drifting,
vanishing sand clouds
Sometimes I love this world.

Wonderful post and haiku!

I've never seen sea foam like that before. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

You know I love any and all beach pics you post. :) Thanks for making me smile.

Jemi Fraser said...

So pretty! Nature is a glorious friend :)

Eagle: Thank you!
I'm not at all sure that sea foam is a good thing. It could have some sudsy elements that aren't natural, but I love the way it looks and blows apart.

Donna: Hi! Hope you've had a good beach experience, too. It's been lovely lately.

Karen: Sooooo glad I make you smile. It's pretty hard not to get a smile from me when I'm at the beach.

Jemi: Isn't She, though? ;)

I always love this world. It's people I have a problem with. Hence the attraction of a solitary writer's life.

Beautiful pictures, Tricia!

Living 2 minutes from the ocean - I better get myself to the beach today. Great pics, poem and reminder.

Yvonne: Precisely! You always say it as it is.

Michael: I hope you made it to the beach. It was gorgeous here today. One of those perfect days.

Judy: Thank you! I don't think I'd be happy if I moved anywhere I couldn't get to the ocean pretty fast. Makes me feel balanced, anchored, peaceful to be here.

Lovely. I love the composition of both the photos and the poetry. It looks like it was a blissful walk.

It's a beautiful world we live in! I wish more people would appreciate it! The last photo is so calming.

Faith: I find bliss in nature often enough to keep me hooked. :)

Julie: Exactly. There is so much beauty and wonder to draw upon.
