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!

down to the sea and back
view from my hammock

to quiet passing currents
now I’m an old man
~Steve Vanek






 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. 🙂
