Birds swiftly humming love songs

      For something so short it is immensely powerful...truly tranquility found...

      The photo is so complimentary to this haiku, you can almost feel the 'silent waves' crashing over you.

      Voted up and beautiful!!!!

      This is one of the reasons why I love haiku, short and sweet but with meaning. It's always cool to see how much can be conveyed in so few words. I love the picture you chose to go with it as well, really sets the tone nicely.

      Awesome haiku Josh. I have the U-verse Showcase channel on almost every night. They have beautiful scenes of the ocean, mountains and beautiful images of nature with peaceful music in the background. I read, write and just close my eyes and just let myself experience the tranquility. Voted up!

      I have always loved the beach and the ocean. That said this poem truly is so succinct and describes the ocean just beautifully. Sharing and voting up.

      Good work, Josh...up, useful, beautiful, and interesting...I let my mind wander off, as your summary said we should, and look what message I found in the bottle that floated up on the beach in the Land of Bob:

      Silent waves crashing

      Birds swiftly humming love songs

      Channel changer found

      ...go figger! ;)

      Do I have to cite you as a source since I'm quoting you back to you?!
