One Deep Breath-The Sea

A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of an absolutely crazy busy week, I flew to Florida for two days. It seemed ridiculous to me at the time~I was exhausted from dealing with work, preparing for the competition I was accompanying, and handling issues with my mother in law. But, Jim was there for the week, and he encouraged me to take the 48 hours I managed to eke out of my schedule and come down for a brief respite.

In that tiny period of time, really just one full day, I managed to do the things I love most about spending time in Florida (aside from being with my family, which is of course, always the best part of being there). Eating at the outdoor cafes, riding our bikes, and of course, walking along the beach.

waves lick my toes
eternal rhythms
echo in my heart
taste of sea salt
lingers on my lips~
ocean’s kiss
sea walk calms my spirit
sends me home
rested and renewed

take a deep breath and plunge into more sea haiku here

  1. Becca- it is beautiful here now, isn’t it? And the water color has been amazing lately… so glad you were able to enjoy your time and be renewed by your visit- it shows in your haikus!

  2. i enjoyed the lovely, calm, rejuvenating sea evoked by your haiku. sounds like a wonderful break!

  3. Ocean Kiss! Ah! Beautiful!This is what I need actually! The water up here in Nor Cal is so cold and I dread going in… But I need to put a wet-suit on and go splash around just to remember how it feels to be kissed!xo

  4. These are perfect! I could really relate. I just love the second one- an ocean’s kiss. I am going to Baja in a few weeks and can’t wait to get that first salty kiss and not only the margarita 😉
