Old Sailors

old sailors still dream
mermaid beauty unseen
seashell lays on shore

ocean commotion

wind lifts salty air
scent of the sea fills my hair --
fishing without care

pelican dives fast
shrimp on the hook was my last --
strips the bait I cast

turn with quick motion
see crab stealing sun lotion --
ocean commotion

crimson tide

                                    pink gulls of twilight

                                            circle the hidden cove...

                                                    sand between our toes

                                         cataclysmic waves

                                     awaken sailors' nightmares

                                      last rites claimed by sea

Land - Ocean

Land uses dress style
according to the climate. . . .
changing with seasons

Ocean is moody
chilling with a windless day. . . .
raging with tempests

Ocean does not care
how land looks or if she’s rough. . .
he hugs her shoreline

- Haiku X 120 - An Ocean Of Flowers -

Church bells and bluebells
Sparkling dew on the flowers
Celebrate birthday

The bees are buzzing
With golden crowns bright and fine
The birds are singing

A colorful floral greeting to you on the big day 
A friend always remembers your birthday - but not the age :) 
A big and warm congratulations to you on your day, Demetrios :)

Endless Admiration

kissing golden sands         
in endless admiration
accursed by the moon

a sweet surrender
caught in stoic web of time
joy reigns eternal

waves hug sand
sweetly serenades 
‘Would you be my valentine?’
