Seashore Haiku
By Don Iannone

1
walking on the beach
releasing what was held back
the waves splash new hope

2
mountains of seashells
standing tall to what is true
make the right life choices

3
coffee on the beach
the day breaks gently on us
hearts stretch in the sun

beautiful haiku! I love the beach!

running on the beach
ears flopping in the sea breeze
k-9 smiles ;-)

Kathleen said...

Yes.. so lovely... I can feel the ocean's breeze and smell the fresh salty air...!

I love these! The third one is my favorite - :)

Don Iannone said...

Thanks Kathy...you live near the beach. You are lucky! Nice haiku back to me. (Smile)

Kathleen...no beaches in Colorado...not lake beaches either. Yes, the beach is a total sensory experience...makes you want to write poetry.

James...thanks. You write beautiful haiku. I am taking notes from you.

(By the way folks, James was a featured poet today. Check out this poetry blog. Click on his name in his post and you can find the story. Congratulations James.)

Those are simple and straightforward, I find them to be very much 'art'. I like them all and appreciate their directness.

Jim...in haiku, less is more. It's a great reminder for me in life.
