Haiku challenge: Ocean & Shore

This trio of haiku is for Ronovan’s weekly challenge



Into the ocean

pour the broken things, jetsam,

washed far from the shore.


White shore birds wave-skim,

quicksilver fish dart through deeps,

life, ocean-cradled.


One life laps the shore,

an ocean of tears and joy,

gulls laugh in the spray.

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.
