Poetry corner: Kaua’i Haiku

blog1Waves pull sand away
step by step, each a lesson
in impermanence
Blue on blue, green, white
Endless motion, water’s pulse
Heartbeat of the world
Fire brought us up,
Water cut us down, and still
We stand under sky

As usual, travel brings out the poetry-writing impulse. The third haiku and photo are from Waimea Canyon.
