Dawn – A Tanka

a hush starts the day
morning bids farewell to dawn –
here on the ocean

waves once bathe in twilight pay
homage to the rising sun

Hushed Reflection

it’s autumn again –
as the verve of summer wanes
gulls claim beach with zeal

a measured change – sound of waves,
empty shores – hushed reflection

Autumn Sky

I spent this unseasonably warm autumn day at the beach
I am lulled by the wind toying with the waves as they gently kiss the shore
The wind at my face force my lungs to relish renewing breaths of salty air
This clears my mind of all thing hectic
And as the sky above fights the gray
the setting sun bursts through

flourish in the skies
gift of a warm autumn day
splashy abstract cloud
