Awesome picture accompanied with a nice haiku. Thank you for sharing Karen.
I couldn't help but think of a couple in love walking hand-in-hand along the shores of the beach as I read the last line of your haiku.
The sea is primal. Perhaps the heart was recognizing that.
love the way you add feelings with observations in your haiku..lovely indeed :)
Beautiful composition....So pleasant to read :)
This is really nice!:)
Like you, Karen, I escape to the ocean. Living in the Sonoran Desert, I find a week at the shore rejuvenating.
I couldn't agree more (as you know now) :)
I can fully relate to that. Being by the sea, watching the waves crash against the shore makes my heart pound with delight too :-)
Beautiful...I too love this form of escape!
Love ocean and sea poetry --- I enjoyed this very much.Thank you for visiting my Day 5 ~~ Waves Wash Over Me.
You truly took me to the seashore. Nice imagery. thanks for dropping by my blog.
I could just hear the children squealing in delight behind your words. Lovely.
you sure have a gift! *VBS*
it's intangible and mysterious, but the connection between the heart and the sea has always seemed to me to be unquestioned.
Amazing! Never thought of that before, but it is true, hearts do pound with delight at the sublime surf!
There must be something exciting on the shore for a heart to pound. Exciting haiku!
Having visited the ocean many times, and knowing that I will within the next month made my heart soar when I saw the photo. I read the haiku and the word 'thrilling' came into my head. I went back and read it again and saw that the word 'thrilling' wasn't in the haiku, but that is the word I thought of and how I felt looking at the ocean. It is just thrilling to me. Made my heart start pounding as I remember my visits to the sea. Wonderful post.Peace
Awesome photo with excellent haiku ~ great energy ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^
Your words recall a memory and vividly describe it as well. Great post.P.S. - I love the Roger McGough quote. :D
Your words and the beautiful photo make me homesick for my favorite place in the world-the beach!
A to be by the sea - salt air, waves pounding, plethora of blue
i took an early morning walk by the ocean today. you gave words to my feelings as i heard the waves, saw the sea gulls and smelled sea life.
Beautiful - ripples to crashing to pounding.Richard
My heart would pound seeing waves like that! great pic and haiku.
