A Haiku Each Day

Sixty-two hundred and five Syllables a year.

Archive for Ocean


Ripples on the sand
Marbling the endpapers
Of the ocean’s book.


A lacquered sailfish
Over the yacht club entrance
Glass eyes stare seaward.


Gray clouds clash above
With the sound of crashing surf
Summer thunderstorm.

Backpost II, or, Why I Didn’t Post This Weekend

A blue screen of death
Vast as a tropical sea…
No haiku today.

I wrote this haiku on 2/19/2011 but, due to aforementioned BSOD, couldn’t post it then…


Winter evening sky
Teal-green at the horizon
An inverted sea.


Scenic overlook
Mountains fade into mountains
Rippled like the sea.


Underneath the pier
The breath of the sleeping sea…
Midnight’s washing tide.
