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

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

      Your magnetic photo captured my attention and I lingered awhile. I read each haiku and found them to be "a dessert for the mind" and a "quench for the thirst." Beautiful!

      I like all five haikus very much, but my favorite is #5. Actually it was a tie between #1 & #5, and since I could only pick one, I chose #5!

      Well done, Angelo! Thanks for sharing these haikus with us.
