Poetry Friday: Ocean haiku

(click to enlarge)

I’ve been on a haiku kick lately, probably due to a big project I’ve been working on these past few months…so for those of you who don’t ‘get’ haiku, I promise I’ll have something different next week!

Margaret is hosting Poetry Friday today at Reflections on the Teche, so head on over for the complete roundup! And by the way…this post is my 399th! I cannot believe I’ll be publishing my 400th post next Friday. The years have been flying by – both personally and professionally – since I started this blog in 2012, so thank you so much for joining me on this journey!


Flashlight Night (Boyd’s Mills Press) hits bookshelves Sept. 5, 2017!

Pre-orders are available now through Barnes & Noble and Amazon, or by clicking the image of the cover to the right. Of course, if you prefer, you can always wait til Sept. 5 and purchase it at your favorite local independent bookstore.

And thank you for all your support!

    I wrote haiku for PF, too, Matt. Sometimes it seems fitting, though I always wonder what Issa would say. I love your idea of the picture, “breakers bewitching”. One cannot stop watching when they look like that.


  2. I enjoyed your haiku, Matt, and it paired beautifully with the photo. I was watching the ocean today but it did not look as exquisite as what you showed. Please send me an offering for my spring gallery. I always love having your voice amongst others.


    1. We’ll be heading off to York Beach again soon, as we do each June, so I think the ocean has been calling me of late. As I always tell people, writing haiku is easy – writing GOOD haiku is extremely difficult! So I always hope I fall somewhere in-between. 🙂
