National Poetry Day: The Seashore

It’s National Poetry Day (in Britain). That’s okay. I’ll take any excuse to write haiku. 🙂

I hope as you read,  you’ll hear the waves, taste the salt in the air and feel the sand between your toes!

 A kiss by the sea
Only us in that moment
A seagull cries

Seagulls wait and watch
Anticipate tossed morsels
Each cries, “Mine! Mine! Mine!”

    Very pretty. I can visualize the scene, feel the ocean breeze off the water, sand beneath the feet, and the sound of waves rushing the shore. 🙂
