Barnegat Bay: A Haiku Sequence

Published June 1, 2016 by AllThingsShort

a defunct lighthouse

stares longingly

at the horizon


seashells from

the tide

where the ocean

kisses the bay

the wind!


did this oyster

lose its pearl?

this gull

caught between the Sun

and the sea


Happy Summer Solstice 2015!

82 degrees—

Sitting under an oak tree

Writing a letter.

His home lifted high

He hides inside the spiral

Until her soft hum.

In my moonlit yard

A symphony of crickets—

The warmth of Summer.

Sun-kissed waves of heat

Roll against my resting form.

A hero is born.
