An evening on the beach – Haiku


An evening on the beach

Breaking waves rumble
Moon beams highlight shouldered curls
Toes connect in sand

    You captured the experience of the beach so well in so few words with this. I love that “shouldered curls” in reference to the light falling on the waves!

  2. Leslie,
    Thanks! When I first wrote this, I was thinking about a couple standing together on the beach so the “shouldered curls” was an attempt to capture softly curled hair, laying on a shoulder, being highlighted by the moon. They are holding each other which is why their “toes connect” in sand.

    After I read it again prior to posting it, I wondered how it would all be interpreted. Thanks for letting me know, I like the way you read it πŸ˜€

    Peace,

    Stephen

    Oh man, I was imagining big boulders or rocks for shouldered curls.. But after reading your interpretations, I like them better.. πŸ™‚ Sometimes, I just need to take that big rock sitting in my brain to see things clearly.. πŸ˜‰
    How have you been Mr.?

  4. Rachanna,
    Some of the fun of poetry is that we don’t all see the same thing. Thanks for sharing what you thought of when you read “shouldered curls”
    I’ve been… busy… but what else is new. Seems we all are these days. I’m actually a bit frustrated as I’ve written part of another “scene” but haven’t had time to actually finish it. Hope to post it soon.

    Hope you and your family are well! As always, thanks for leaving feedback!

    Peace,

    Stephen

      Oh man, it is tough than having the writer’s block!! I understand, totally get it, trust me πŸ™‚ I am struggling to meet my commitments too most days, so hang in there.. And take it easy!

      • Rachana,
        You hit it with the second part of your comment. It’s just been a lack of time. Once I was able to get the time to sit down and write, the rest of what I was working on came out.

        Thanks for the encouragement!!

        Peace,

        Stephen

    Toes connect on sand … How much I want my toes to be connected to sand right now .. instead of the cold and the snow … very nice Stephen. Hope you’re doing ok!
