Haiku by Changming Yuan

Seascape:  Four Haiku

f2 may 8, 10

a daring spirit
trying to stir the whole sea
with its tiny beak

p16 may 8, 10

in grace and leisure
you dance with a raging storm
to the blue descent

f18 may 2, 10

however winds blow
all waves keep pushing forward
to the shore only

p19 may 2, 10

light rays at sunset
retreat to the ocean's heart
together with gulls
