Haiku 48-54 Strolling along Palm beach

palm trees silhouette against ocean's pastel hues sunset's soft glow misty horizon oceans seperate his palm from my tear my floating sandal- tumbling waves break upon the shore floating bubbles before i tossed my pebble dad breaks wind at sea waves lilt upon the sand coloured corals crunch between our toes low tide dawn's golden shimmer reveals a coral reef the tempest a lone ship fades in the mist not for the contest but tnks Heather Ober and participating friends for the ocean haiku inspiration

Fabulous haiku as always. Your last one there is chillingly good. I like them all though; couldn't pick a favourite. ~I got the subtle little hint in your last comment. I'm working on it. Thanks a million for your committed devotion to my humble work. See you around like a donut!

Well you seem to have been crazy inspired by the Oceanku contest (whether or not you actually participated in it). These were fantastic! The five-year-old in me is drawn towards the fourth one... about your dad "breaking wind"... LOL! Though the last one is definitely the most traditional... keeping to the short and concise side of haiku. It's a good skill to have... thanks for sharing these little gems!

wow, Charma, and are you asking us our favorites when you say or or or? I can tell you the best one for me is the second. It creates a unique visual. I like all the rest very much and found the breaking wind one to be hilarious.

'coloured corals crunch', such vivid alliterations! Very evocative of being with the ocean, really good. Have a lovely rest of the weekend, Charmaine. ~Jeremy

Give me a good beach & crashing waves any day. This was heart-warming, to say the least.
