Umi and Mori Haikus by Julie Brinson

Umi and Mori Haikus by Julie Brinson
                            Six Umi and one Mori Haiku 
 
following bright sun 
alone, he surfs a strong wave 
with a young dolphin 
 

seen in clear water 
bright life on a coral reef 
illumination                                  
 

a tiny seahorse 
sleeps in tropical sea grass 
and moonlight falls down 
 

drifting on currents 
wishes lost in old bottles 
many horizons 
 

in cold waters deep 
sad songs of the lonely whales 
mourning lost ones loved 
 

sea salted sands 
shift into the greens and blues 
then the yellow sun 
 
 
bright sun warms noon day 
overripe apples hang low 
--sticky, drunken bees
