Breathtaking …..
     providing eupnoeic splendour
       insufflating infinite morrows

Directionless …..
     breezing towards mythical sovereignties
       conjuring phantasmagorical auroras

Unencumbered …..
     dedicating a purposeful gait
       traversing fractaled littoral pathways

Untapped impressionable footsteps
   ….. to the fore
Sinuously inscribed footprints
   ….. abaft

Time and Tide
   guarantee no compass
     proffer no favours
       reward no virtues

Tide and Time
   offer but opportunity
     to the whimsical
   inscribe character
     upon their hearts
   impress ideals
     upon the worthy

Awash with cometary elders
Stroll ….. upon grains of eternity
who once were giants

for the idea of fractals on the beach!

Mist Destinies Tanka 短歌

amidst dew and murk

amongst sea foam and sand stars

rhythmed tidal fates

‘tween what was and ….. what might be

transits of missed destinies

Mist Destinies

Photo from Eyes of a Dragon – Mist Destinies

This photo appeals to me. I wrote an earlier Misty Pathway Haiku from this same image! My muse seems to prefer fog, mist ….. and mystery! I am fortunate in that this concrete transit is but a short walk away from home.


Daylight Pathway Haiku 俳句

Cerulean globe

eroding granite altars

island solitude

Misty Pathway Haiku 俳句

Brume enshrouded spans

weathering both time and tide

stone sanctuary

Misty Pathway

Littoral Reverse Nonet

dragon runes
mythical beach
polished grove armour
ruins of legends past
unmatched tidal gallantry
opposing unforgiving odds

Pirate Treasure Tanka 短歌

A Pirate’s lost map

beckons that ‘X‘ marks the spot

‘neath vexing cold sand

‘tween odd flotsam and jetsam

beware of too many ….. spots

Beach Sticks

Fallen Giant Haiku 俳句

Tidal throne adrift

cast out as unworthy bark

yet weathers all gales

Fallen Giant II
