    A neat, subtle poem, almost understated, certainly evocative. I like it. I once wrote, in somewhat similar vein:-

    incoming tide
    the very last patch
    of dry sand

    autumn moon
    the glow on
    the persimmons

    autumn breeze --
    on the deserted beach
    waves frolic

    sweltering summer sun
    steamy afternoon shower ...
    rain down
