Summer Sunset – Malibu #1 and #2

Lately, I’ve been on a haiku kick.  I like the challenge of having to say something with only 17 syllables, having to capture emotion and choose words very carefully.  I tinker.  It’s fun – like the Twitter of poetry (or is Twitter the Haiku of Social Media? Somebody probably said that already…)

It’s also fun having Malibu less than an hour away, so I can revel in the beauty that is Southern California, draw peace from ocean air, and be grateful for being alive.  I was inspired today to write the poems below and take the pics that follow.

 

#1

White wisps smudge blue sky

Golden light hugs mountain curves

Crashing waves glisten

 

#2

Salty air curls hair

Seagulls sing for their supper

Sand and sea spray dance
