Snowy Beach

Snowfall on the beach
Dollar Photo Club

my steps are brisk

the beach is cold with snow

the waves are slower

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai January

What to do with this prompt, beach, on the Northern Hemisphere where I live? Well … I don’t know, but as I read the examples given by Jane in her “A Dictionary of Haiku” (the online-version) I started to see (and believe) that “beach” can be an example of a kigo for winter. I even tried to go to the beach yesterday … and it was really an eye-opener …

Here are a few example haiku by Jane with this modern kigo “beach”:


rainbows in sea foam
sand crystals

a winter’s day
suddenly the sun
at a beach picnic

February sun
lying on the nude beach
fully clothed

winter beach
in thin white clouds
thoughts of snow

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
