Meditations on Waves

20120716-195915.jpg
1. Magnificent waves/
Menacing shoreline swimmers/
Cold vaulted peril/
#haiku

2. Temporary vaults/
Suspended over laced floors/
Eternal seconds/
#haiku

3a. White marble of foam/
Temporary parqueting:/
Wave cathedral’s floor/
#haiku

3b. Perfect froth levels/
People’s secular concerns/
To build faith anew/
#haiku

4. Nature’s architect/
Is physics’ gravity &/
Hydro-dynamics/
#haiku

5. Each breaker designed/
Thirteen billion years ago/
For just this moment/
#haiku

6. Each vaulted chamber/
Replaced behind a curtain/
Of gently laced foam/
#haiku

7. Each wave’s filigree/
Is Tons of weightless bubbles/
Polishing sand’s grains/
#haiku

9. Sand we can build with/
But waves we simply observe/
Already perfect/
#haiku

10. Fluid majesty/
Obeys temporarily/
Mortal human claims/
#haiku

11. Understanding of/
Gravity’s architecture/
Can’t change anything/
#haiku

12. Our powerlessness/
Surprises only our wills/
& our proud Egos/
#haiku

13. Bodies understand/
The limitations of life/
While Ego bristles/
#haiku

14. Magic of the waves/
Architect of the perfect/
Erases all doubt/
#haiku

15. Challenge not nature/
Long after you’ve departed/
Waves will keep curling/
#haiku
