Ocean Haiku Waves Poems
Ocean Waves Coming Ashore in Pompano Florida
Haiku about the Ocean
Haiku poetry can be beautiful, thought provoking and a great read. Here I present for your reading pleasure ocean haiku based on a photo I took of the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of Florida at Pompano’s beach.
These haiku of incoming waves along the seaboard celebrate the beauty and awesomeness of nature, and the ethereal life of the crashing waves. The waves form, are pushed toward shore, where they collapse and return to the ocean. Sometimes they leave behind ocean treasures they have picked up and carried along with them. Sometimes only the foam created when air mixes into the water is the only thing left behind.
These waves can be good for the beach, or a natural disaster in the making depending on what is driving them to shore. Gentle winds can help move sand toward the shoreline and build up the beaches where we can enjoy them. Stormy weather however can remove that same sand and push it back out to sea or down the coast.
I hope you enjoy these 5 haiku poems which I have written in the 5-7-5 English style, and please do Vote for your favorite of the 5 in the poll I have provided. Comments are also welcome.

The Ocean Haiku Poems
#1 Waters awaken
Rolling waves catch the dawn’s light
Race the wind ashore
#2 Dawn breaks, lights the sky
Dawn breaks, lights the sky
Waves march ashore dressed in white
Wetness covers sand
#3 White threads in water
White threads in water
Sun lights up Atlantic seas
Waves at journey’s end
#4 Sun peeks out, dawn comes
Sun peeks out, dawn comes
Waves break, white caps rush to shore
Eastern seaboard foams
#5 Rolling waves rumble
Rolling waves rumble
Atlantic water whitecaps
Follow the sun west
