midnight beach 
a wave breaks 
through the dark 

—Michael Evans

About the author: I am retired and moved to Washington state three years ago. Began TRYING to write haiku in late 1990 - did not get around to submitting for publication until 1997. Am considered, by family & friends, to be one of the great procrastinators of the last 60 years. Publications include Frogpond, Modern Haiku, Heron's Nest, RAW NerVZ, Red Moon Anthology, and others. I continue trying to learn what haiku really is.

    July moon
    reflection glitters
    in a buzzing lake

    moonlit storm
    the waves slivery splashes
    over and over

    police sirens
    through empty streets

    Thank you, Michael. I like to read your poem over and over. Each time I hear a wave breaking through the darkness. Some of my favorite memories are of very dark nights at Lighthouse Beach here in Chatham.

    night breeze
    phosphorescence fades
    on the shingle

    Following the wave
    again the allpowerful darkness.
    -Where are you ,my Lady Moon?

    in the darkness ...
    the ocean's roar,
    a grain of sand,
    in my eye
