Summer Love

The sunrise glows on your face as you squint and yawn and stretch.
Your sunburn looks bright red against the white T shirt you borrowed.
Such a tired pretty lady starting my day with a smile.

We walk along the beach, you laugh, as the surf tickles your feet.
The breeze lifts some gulls and they glide like children's tethered kites.
It is days like these I will always wish to visit again.

When evening comes and the waves break white in the night,
then, to their melody, I will  fall asleep  with you  in my  heart,
dreaming that somehow you will always be there in the morn.

    Hey Craig, I could not resist the heart & the colorfulness of the scenes yet each of these can be read as a paragraph - work on each grouping being a stand a lone as well as work together - leaps mid line & bigger leap to line 3. Congrad's on your win. Light & Love

    Craig, think short long short as in the haiku the content is great [remember to TRY to do the word groupings in the lines [The sunrise]3 [glows on your face]4 [as you squint]4 [and yawn and stretch] GOOD leave 1 space for me?- okies line 2 should be optically as well as syllable wise longer than1 & 3 - you always like to polish things up, this is already a high contender! Light & Love
