Footprints

cresting waves
carry waning sunlight--
footprints vanish
 
      *     *     *      
 
gold
oozes
from the sun 
like ambrosia   
infusing the sea
with honeyed wine
'til each wave
glitters
gold 
 
waves
roll in
to dance with
waning sunlight
past florid shorelines
where footprints fade
erased by
cresting
waves

    HEather, your dazzling verses with the breezy flow and imagery make this Stunning. I will have to study this format. It's lovely

    I really like both versions of this poem. I think the advantage of haiku is that it lets the mind fill in the details, whereas longer forms allow the author to do so. The details and descriptions in the second one give it more life in my opinion. It appears brighter and busier.

    This poem glows. It would like up the dark!

    I LOVE THIS! I really need to start writing poetry more for contests, but I am quite often a victim to writers block so it's hard! :( But once again, you inspire me... I may just have to give this contest a shot and order this dreadful writers block to go away! Nicely done, my lady. :)

    I confess to not knowing the definition of "metamorph," but only because I hadn't read the competition requirements. I like your entry very much, a real contender. Jack

    Yeah YOU! You did it and well! You can title it anything you want hon? Thanks for the entry was it fun? Light & Love

    I can't wait to do one for this contest...yours is really good. It's hard to say what you want with a form like this, but you pulled it off in spectacular fashion.
