Endearing images of my favorite place to be: sand, shells, spray, squalls. Great alliteration and evocative words. All the best ~ John

Thank you very much S. O, a bit trickier than your normal haiku. Tom

awesome alliteration, Tom. I was not sure when she said to use one alliteration if she meant all the way through or to use at least one in the poem. I think I have three in mine!

Thank you Andrea, I thought the same, did she mean a minimum of one or could you do it throughout, her example showed two so I took a chance Tom

Your haiku reminds me of the way the ocean looks here after a storm subsides. Great use of alliteration, Tom! Best wishes in Tania's contest. Hugs, Carolyn
