The Morning After

steam-rollered by waves
whipped up by wuthering wind
the beach is uncreased
sloping down to kiss the tide
in ebb-and-flow afterglow

My response to Carpe Diem #1066 beach

Chèvrefeuille has chosen a few haiku by Jane Reichhold as examples for today’s prompt: beach:

the beach is clean
with new driftwood
winter storms

the cold wind
now part of the day
at the beach


winter beach
widened by the tide
and a lone gull

the swish of surf
falling snowflakes
have a sound

winter beach
in thin white clouds
thoughts of snow

February sun
lying on the nude beach
fully clothed
