Lately, I’ve been on a haiku kick.  I like the challenge of having to say something with only 17 syllables, having to capture emotion and choose words very carefully.  I tinker.  It’s fun – like the Twitter of poetry (or is Twitter the Haiku of Social Media? Somebody probably said that already…)

It’s also fun having Malibu less than an hour away, so I can revel in the beauty that is Southern California, draw peace from ocean air, and be grateful for being alive.  I was inspired today to write the poems below and take the pics that follow.



White wisps smudge blue sky

Golden light hugs mountain curves

Crashing waves glisten



Salty air curls hair

Seagulls sing for their supper

Sand and sea spray dance
