The sunset yielded to starlight
And the wave kept the rhythmic song,
Pounding on from day to night
As the salty winds played along,
With old fingers the pen in hand,
Slowly I wrote a simple haiku
There on the shore in the wet sand
To be washed away and taken to you

As sand grind the feet
I dream of your softest touch
From lips tasting sweet

The starlight is blinded by the sun,
The tides have erased all away,
The brightness and people come
Upon the sandy vastness to play,
I leave with a coat of fresh brine
Hoping the waves can reach you,
And touch your heart from mine
Letting you know my sand Haiku.

Gloom

Prof. I like this better than anything I've
ever read of yours. Maybe it's because it's
about the beach, and I do love the beach.
Anyway, I'm keeping it, too.

Lovely Professor! I agree with Seymour that this is a "keeper." hugs, Chris

hey gloom...I love the way you presented your lovely Haiku.

Well Done and indeed a keeper.

Not such a gloomy one?

I love the beach and could sit there for hours...and I loved this piece.

The ocean takes and leaves many messages...I think it sent yours.  A lovely presentation of Haiku!

Professor, this poem within a poem is exquisite!--a jewel within a jewel.

This is most definitely a . You are a marvellous poet--and can be unbelieveably romantic!

To love, sandy beaches--and haikus!

How lovely. The story behind the poem, and very nicely done.

Just had to introduce some of your work to a new member.  You don't mind having this gem bumped up, do you?
