Haiku challenge: Car & Coast

Sorry, Ronovan, but I can’t do ‘car’. Cars just don’t seem to suit my idea of haiku at all. So I’ve taken a few liberties this week, bent the definitions a bit. For haikus along this theme, please take a look here.

 

No road breaks the peace

coast frilled in gentle white foam

sea green petticoat.

ย 

Shore sings with gull voice

raucous laughter skimming waves

leaving us behind.

ย 

On the shore, a boat

above the tideline, waiting

for sailors like us.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I don’t care what the prompt words were, these haiku are lovely and well done. (And more gulls! ) ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the images in the first one–the white frills and sea-green petticoat, but I think I like the last one the best.
