Reminds me a many summer vacations. Lovely memories.
It's always to hard to say goodbye to the seaside.
I love the double meaning of "wave." I just KNOW Fireblossom will be tickled pink with this haiku. ;)
Oh, hard to say goodbye indeed, but particularly to the seaside!! Perfect words as always, MZ!
Sad to say goodbye to seashore sonnets and sandcastles ~
...the last lingering look at a nice relaxing spa-like vacation... This was the first photo I tried to write for but they were all horrible. and you do it PERFECTLY in 12 words... Clever use of wave...Splendid mind you have. :)
The love of haiku is the root of all evil.
i dont like goodbyes...at least with sand castles you can build them back you know...
MZ, I have to say I used to travel a lot, and luckily whenever I was near water I was able, for the most part, to get rooms with ocean/river views, and I have to say, looking out that window every morning at that sight is something I'll never forget. Love how you use goodbye here, as I interpret it in a multitude of ways. You are leaving, as if you're going to jump. You are leaving as departing this vacation scene. Or you are leaving your woes behind as you are now on vacation and this view from the window is, albeit temporary, enough to wave goodbye to those real life weights on the mind. Fantastic piece. Thanks
a few salty tears too I'm sure
Sigh. I so love this.....especially "seashore sonnets"
On which sideof the windowis reality?
I suppose that'll be just find since you're not really a "seashore sonnets" kind of girl. :)I'm enjoying your haiku but love your typical feisty fare.Shawnarosemarymint.wordpress.com
Feel the sand and smell the sea
The soft 's' is wiped away by the hard 'g'... everything contributes to the mood here, the bitter sweetness of nostalgia.
a holiday over...and all the songs and scents die..sad..great capture mz
You wrap a holiday up well in your words!
The same hand cups this in its hand. Sweet.
Perfect. I was ready for the sandcastles to be gone with a wave from the ocean, and you changed it. Very well done.But I love the first part — seashore sonnets and sandcastles — it makes me homesick for the ocean, but in the nicest possible way.K
Some things end WAY too soon.
Love the alliteration and the double meaning in wave, cleverly penned!
what a beautiful haiku you created from my photograph..you captured what I felt when I left Punta Sur. Although I didn't build a sand castle it was a wave goodbye and the beautiful moment of that visit was gone. I took this from a window at the top of a lighthouse. I climbed every stair and I was so proud. :)
This was my fave of the photos...and you did it much justice. Kiillleeerrrrrr!!!!
You've packed a great deal into these short lines. A beautiful reflection here!!!
