writing a haiku
in the sand. . .
a wave finishes it

    writing ~
    the sky writer
    in need of an eraser

    ---


    through the forest
    the trees ...
    silver lining, beneath the clouds
    reaching up
    not hands
    my eyes

    After the wave
    on the Golden Sands
    a deleted letter

    haiku waiting to be written --
    speechless observer

    -

    piebald light cross the horizon
    heralds the dawn --
    misty valley

    -Where are the sand-castles?
    -We don't know! are talking
    the wind and the waves

    lazy winter day:
    clouds my easel
    during the spring
