the hollow boom of breakers
in the fog

    Very Pacific coast, especially after a storm chases the big rollers in. Evocative of the great forces we may sense but cannot completely narrow down.

    There is something primordial about this haiku…a sort of sense of the beginning…a feeling of an essential home…a connection with the sea.

    I remember the Valley Fog up around Sacramento, CA around December and January, where you couldn’t see two feet infront of your headlights. Eerie! Great Haiku.

    Very, very nice. Smell the seaweed and feel the damp peneterate your jacket.

    Mike Farley has just lost his battle with cancer. He was a great haiku writer, and a cool person to know.
