A Poet Like Me

A poet like me
Casting nets to the windy
Waterfalls wonder
If there is a melody
Playing for their rhythmic splash

Nature calls for me
Letting them to other souls
Telling their story
Asking for breaths of honor
And telling of their life songs

At last, they hear verbs
Splashing falling waterfalls
Waters to refresh
Standing underneath the flow
Feeling the wet, mossy stones

Taking leaps for love
Hand in hand forever more
And next, the lovers
Dance upon the sandy shores
Aromatic tides of salt

Shell crumbs under feet
Tides rushing with salt and sand
Like dermabrasion
Scrubbing sludge and adding more
Taking away worried songs

This is in response to the prompt: ______like me. Read more here: Dead Poets Live

Stay Strong

even under stress
sands will hold force together
appearances skewed

Keep Hoping

erosion beckons
foundations shaking hold on
facing certain hope

Awareness Comes

tides will come and go
washing up the new and old
bringing forth new thoughts

Today is really a combination of haiku and senryu, so take your pick.
