Beach Haiku

I’ve been playing with haiku ( beach haiku)

body surfing the ocean
riding a ribbon of water
the white sash of a wave

+++

waves used to pound me into sand
now content to watch
watered down memories.

+++

Silver waves royaling             (Pun, play on words?)
across moonlit ocean
flowing mantle drapes the sand

+++

Footprint craters pock the beach
wind ripples the sand
erased like we never existed

+++

a living hourglass
sand trickles out the side of my hand
my biggest worry is losing you.
