in the sand. . .
a wave finishes it

    writing ~
    the sky writer
    in need of an eraser


    through the forest
    the trees ...
    silver lining, beneath the clouds
    reaching up
    not hands
    my eyes

    After the wave
    on the Golden Sands
    a deleted letter

    haiku waiting to be written --
    speechless observer


    piebald light cross the horizon
    heralds the dawn --
    misty valley

    -Where are the sand-castles?
    -We don't know! are talking
    the wind and the waves

    lazy winter day:
    clouds my easel
    during the spring
