howling and screaming with rage
She came in the night...

    [a thirty-foot wall/of water pounds the beach--/remembering Camille] more haiku like first 2 lines fine now ..we could work more on line 3 or leave it..up to you..your idea [you made it harder too because haiku is in the moment ie present tense so that's how I would suggest doing it.

    Cher it's a great telling using personification which in not used in haiku, copy that blurb I put at the end of my #13 and try again..leave this do as you did with the other label senryu..which is witty or sarcastic in tone and about human nature ;) Light & Love
