Haiku – X Marks the Spot

A pirate’s treasure

Coins of silver and bright gold

Hidden and secret

Haiku – 3 Looks at Shell

A white sandy beach

Young child racing through the grains

Spies a tiny shell


Multi-colored shell

Resting in a tidal pool

Waiting to be claimed


Shells upon the beach

One by one they are picked up

Lasting memories

And because I’ve been singing this one all morning.

Thought I would share.

Ocean side

Sitting with my toes

Firmly planted in the sand

Underneath a loud flapping palm tree


That’s my first attempt at Sidlak Poetry. I would love to hear some thoughts on it and I would love to see what you can do. Post your Sidlak poem either in the comments section or your own blog. Swing back over and leave me your link so I can check it out.

Great version of this Buffett classic.
