Summer memoirs

Posted in Haiku, Summer with tags on November 10, 2014 by Mayumi Kawaharada

This summer, just for a few days, I visited the coast at Onomichi (in Hiroshima Pref.). The old city center fronts the Inland Sea.
I also visited some tiny islands nearby.

Island after islandP1000891
In the deep blue ocean —
Ancient sea route

………………………. The evening beach —
………………………. Only birds drop by
………………………. The sand castle

After a heavy storm —
The puddle reflects
A seagull shadow

………………………. Sea fog covers
………………………. An empty beach house —
………………………. The end of summer
