    Love the contrast of tides to asphalt, and the texture switch!

    Despite living in Australia, and Queensland, and having been on Diamond Head, Hawaii, I'm surprised I have no crab haiku! But a few asphalt ones! :-)

    I love all of these variations!! Scuttling and asphalt are particularly evocative words, no?
