summer fog --
a gull disappears
into the jetty

    Hortensia,
    I watched your gull... swallowd by the fog; a thought painting_!

    herring gulls
    a broken clam

    Very nice, Hortensia. Your image plays well along the Lake Michigan shoreline in Chicago.

    almost fogbound ...
    an egret escapes with a
    whoooosh....whooosh...whoosh


    Note: I would have used only extra spaces between the whooshes, but tinywords doesn't oblige.

    It was foggy in San Francisco too last week.

    Distant ship’s horns --
    behind the pink-gray fog
    the sun is setting.

    Beautiful moment, when gull merges with fog. I see this often where I live by the sea.

    flying into fog...
    only the sound
    of the trumpeter swans

    Lovely haiku, resonant of Hudson River by NYC as well.

    river fogged in -
    gulls circle in & out
    of sight

    A lovely rendering of the beach. The imagery is so vivid I feel like I'm there

    sunrise-
    last strand of her auburn hair
    fades in the mist
