Hai-Tide

a walk on the shore
erased by the rising tide--
waves of goodbye

    Congrats on your win in my contest, Caleb! The title is so clever, and the moment you've described here evokes the perfect touch of emotion. I agree with Reason below - I think "erased" is just fine here, since the "is" that would come before it is implied and indicates present tense. Awesome job!

    ah shucks, that is sad-- can also be "bye tide" but on second thought, enjoyed the word play on "high tide" -- and no, nothing to forgive about--totally understandable with the amount of people here, it's so easy to get swallowed up here, not to mention I "camo" my name, haha-- nice catching you here, "Resident Painted Hunter"-- me, i am the resident fickle mind. Thanks for all your words of encouragement! I'm off to lala land at 4am, yup I am whacked. I'll see you around!

    Clever puns. You are a wordsmith!

    Awesome haiku! The sea inspires so much poetry it seems, and this is one of the better ones. I find it really easy to walk miles and miles on the beach without even realizing it.

    forgot to say. I got a big kick out of your captcha you told me about!!
