Underwater Dance: Beach Haiku
Happy Poetry Friday! I'm away from the ridge this week, so thanks for visiting my home while I am at the beach this week. For more PF posts visit Mary Lee at A Year of Reading.
In honor of my trip to the coast of Texas this week, I decided to try a beach haiku. I am so grateful to our Poetry Friday host this week, Mary Lee, who gave me a helpful tip to consider when writing a haiku. This week, you'll notice that my form is a little more "loose". It definitely works. Thanks again for the advice, Mary Lee!
Invitation to Write:
You can try Mary Lee's invitation as well! Take any piece you are working on, and see how you might break "loose" from the traditional form or structure. Allow yourself some wiggle room. Have fun loosening the reigns with your poetry writing this week!

Nice! I see the scene in the first two lines, then in the third, you give me a new way to look at it!

I have a favorite picture from when we go to the beach that's so similar, love this Kiesha. And when I go this summer, I will remember your "underwater" dance.

What an inviting scene - I just want to run down that path and splash in the water!

Ah, salt and sand colliding....wonderful! Enjoy your time at the beach. I love the feel of the ocean air. It really is some sort of tonic. Off to see what I can loosen in my wip.

Lovely! I can see, hear and smell the salt and sand colliding in their underwater dance. Enjoy your week at the beach!
