#17




Spring tides strike terror;
unguarded shorelines cower.
Wave-mallets sculpt land.

  6. This is an astonishing piece... the picture and poem as a unit. I love the idea of waves as mallets - so original.

  8. Image and poem marry well, both striking and complimenting one another.

  9. I'll just repeat what others have said - "wave-mallets" is such a great image. I like how the first two lines suggest attack with "terror" and "unguarded", but then art in the third with "sculpt". The power and beauty of nature.

  10. What a powerful haiku. Your imagery is stunning.

    Thanks for participating in last week's Limerick-Off. Your entry came in right after I named the winners. :) But I've already posted a new Limerick-Off challenge and hope you'll be a regular participant.

  14. Scary scene. Love "wave mallets", such an apt description of something so powerful it can pulverize.
