Magical Moments (Haiku)

A Poem by Allen Smuckler


Magical moments

on soft spun sandy beaches;

alone and in love

Haiku are tercets of 5-7-5- syllables. Like any form, there is a certain amount of room for interpretation and exploration...

& one slowly sinks into that blissful "trance".... so breviloquent & sooo beautiful!

I choose exploration-
a magical moment on a beach my love would simply just be
I would like to look out at the horizon with beautiful images but no deep thoughts
I miss the beach very much-I moved North this year
I would explore all-dig up sand fleas,I might be tempted to feed them to the sea gulls,I would pick up a large rock and catch a hiding crab,I would dance in and out of the reefs trying (as I have for 20 years) to catch a bumble bee fish,I would wait for the sun to slowly sink and then I would swim with the manatee's...I lived by the Indian River with the Atlantic ocean background-Florida
those would be my only loves...just me and them-Holly's magical moment
thank you so fine sir a whoosh of provoking thoughts*)*)
and you have the perfect measurements--- 5-7-5 a perfect figure*)

An interesting comparison, as love, like the beach. rarely fails to leave a stone in my shoe, sand in my skivvies, despite its initial appeal!

"alone and in love" a somewhat puzzling thought

Being alone can be liberating and in a place where you can reflect is even better. I like this image.

Thanks for the review, and this is such a beautiful poem, it might be a senryu though not sure but because of that one human emotion in the word "love" may have tossed it into the other catagory :)
