This is lovely Thompson. I was only saying yesterday how much I long to go to the beach. Your words minded me of standing barefoot in sand, staring out at the horizon with the sea breeze in my face. Thank you for sharing.

I feel the cool wind, taste the salt on my lips, hear the sea, are we really alone? I really enjoyed the calm in this Haiku.

A powerful haiku, Thompson. When a lone person sees others by the seaside (like the people in the distance in the picture), enjoying themselves as a family, or in groups — a solitary person can feel ‘really’ alone. That is surely the time when a writer is in their element. The picture paints this, yet your haiku paints this loneliness and associated emotions, so well.

When a haiku can make you feel the soft texture of the sand and smell the salt of the sea, that’s when you know that it is doing justice to the history of this special art form. An amazingly-done job!

I love it, Thompson. Thank you for taking me to the beach while there is an ongoing travel restriction on our place.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
