Haiku – Coastal Stars and Stripes

Old glory flying

Waving in the salty air

High above the shore

+

In case you were wondering, I wrote this Haiku when I was at the beach a few weeks ago. There was a man who lived a couple of houses down from where we were renting. Each day he would put up and take down the flag, which was on a pole at the end of this wooden board walk that led to the beach. I would see that flag as it hung over the sand with the ocean crashing behind it, and it inspired this Haiku.

A Short Story about two boys who discover a hidden beach and the evil secrets that it holds.

In every corner there stood a ghost or goblin, or some fiend ready to snuff out their young life, vague objects picked up by the struggling light.  The coolness of the cave helped to add to this and so did the wind.  Its voice inside the cave (stronger than the last time they were here) was one of a ghost like howl.

Somehow they found the entrance that led to the abandoned beach, found it or were guided to it – something to ponder upon.

“Are you sure about this?” Seth didn’t care if he was called a baby or not.  He was on shaky knees, and he wasn’t afraid to admit it.

Junior surprised him with this answer.  “We can turn back now if you want.”

Seth thought about it for a moment.  “We’ve come this far.  Why turn back now?”

The boys gave one more pause, and then they stepped through the hole and onto the abandoned beach.

Fishing boat

Trawling across the water

Birds in your wake

The day getting hotter

Waves crash and splash

Hauling nets

Catching your daily cash

Hard and calloused hands

Aches and pains for thee

Life on and from the sea

Haiku – I See the Sea and Free EBook Today – Ghostly Visitations and Southern Destinations

Distant ocean breaks

Crashing salty, loud, and white

Feet rushing to it

+

I have my novel “Ghostly Visitations and Southern Destinations” free on Kindle today.  I wanted to let you guys know about it.  I also wanted to try and stay true to this blog by providing a little Haiku to go along with it.  So, you will find the Haiku above, and the free promotion below.  I hope you enjoy both of them.

Parson - EBook

… There comes a moment in all our lives when we sit back and do a mental inventory. We, in essence, see our lives flash before our eyes. Parson Slang was taking that mental inventory as he sat on the edge of the bed, waiting, a box of shells beside him and hands within reach of a shotgun that would end a human life. He hoped it wouldn’t come to that. The deal is done once the body goes cold. There was no turning back …

Parson was, at one point in time, a warehouse worker. A simple day to day guy, and then that Golden Pirate showed up with the map leading to buried treasure. Parson had debated about it for a good long time, but the chance to wind up rich in this world was too much for him to pass up. So he took the next step, and journeyed beyond his front door, into this new life where he found himself sitting on a bed with a shotgun in his hand, waiting for the door to open.

Follow Parson’s journey as he is double-crossed, pushed into endless peril, and asked to do things most people are rarely asked to do.

Does he get his buried treasure? Does he get that easy life so many of us dream about?

The answers lie within the pages.

Poem – Flip Flops

Flip Flops in the rain

Feeling so much pain

The warm sandy beach

So far from their reach

On this long gloomy day

So full of dark and grey
