String haiku

String Haiku       Charles Henderson contest
Theme – sea haiku


bare feet sift soft sand 
waves whisper foamy secrets
of bright days to come


sand shimmers with shells
waves tumble in unison
on a glistening day


shimmering sundown
a butter sun melts the sky
on a golden beach


sand laden waves
pound craggy sea-crusted rocks
storm sky hunkers low

    You take us from a bright summer day to the storm clouds approaching. These storms come up quickly here on the beach in Florida, Eiken. You have described the scene perfectly in your string haiku. Best wishes in Charles' contest. Love, Carolyn
