3 – 18

Thanks to Freya Pickard for selecting another of my haiku for Pure Haiku.


below sea surface
subaqueous creatures dance,
glowing unknown lives

  1. I so love this poem! You have crafted such a vision with only three lines!!! πŸ™‚ This is a wonderful little poem to read again and again. It made me think how this vision would look in a children’s book with sea creatures darting about in the depths of the ocean deep. It made me think of fathoms deep and all that is still unexplored in the ocean. All that glowing and dancing…a lesson for us all. πŸ™‚ Thank you for this poem…it is a treasure!
