still by the seashore
a girl and an empty chair

    a bucket of sand
    summer's child creates
    her own world

    stirring haiku

    =========
    evening sea breeze
    nearly forgotten soft words ~
    she continues to wait

    Another sunrise:
    grief transmutes
    into healing

    into certain
    hope of
    Resurrection

    After the quarrel,
    both the sky and the sea
    in the dark colours
