Haiku 48-54 Strolling along Palm beach

palm trees silhouette
against ocean's pastel hues
sunset's soft glow

misty horizon
oceans seperate his palm
from my tear

my floating sandal-
tumbling waves break
upon the shore

floating bubbles
before i tossed my pebble
dad breaks wind at sea

waves lilt upon the sand
coloured corals crunch
between our toes

low tide
dawn's golden shimmer reveals
a  coral reef

the tempest
a lone ship fades
in the mist

not for the contest but tnks Heather 
Ober and participating friends for 
the ocean haiku inspiration

    Right now I am enjoying the second, and the last two haiku the most. Maybe this is simply because of the mood that I am presently in? Again, you came-up with a series of very well-written haiku, Charma(oh, the last one has a syllable count of: 3/4/3 = 10 syllables. Impressive!).

    Fabulous haiku as always. Your last one there is chillingly good. I like them all though; couldn't pick a favourite. ~I got the subtle little hint in your last comment. I'm working on it. Thanks a million for your committed devotion to my humble work. See you around like a donut!

    Sweer short tales of the seashore here! Keep it up! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Well you seem to have been crazy inspired by the Oceanku contest (whether or not you actually participated in it). These were fantastic! The five-year-old in me is drawn towards the fourth one... about your dad "breaking wind"... LOL! Though the last one is definitely the most traditional... keeping to the short and concise side of haiku. It's a good skill to have... thanks for sharing these little gems!

    wow, Charma, and are you asking us our favorites when you say or or or? I can tell you the best one for me is the second. It creates a unique visual. I like all the rest very much and found the breaking wind one to be hilarious.

    Charma, spectacular as always!...I got a laugh out of number 4. :)

    - They are all well written Charma .... but if I got to pick one - I choose: number one! - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    Excellent, Charmaine! You're so "gooood" writing haiku!! The second and third one are awe-awesome!! A fav!

    'coloured corals crunch', such vivid alliterations! Very evocative of being with the ocean, really good. Have a lovely rest of the weekend, Charmaine. ~Jeremy

    Give me a good beach & crashing waves any day. This was heart-warming, to say the least.
