Beach

burdened with thirst
water, now a luxury
beaches all around

beaches all around
no sea, nor river, oceans weep
acts of foolishness


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights - Beach.

  6. I don't remember the source of the quote: Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink. Maybe Robinson Crusoe? I'm too lazy to google it. Very planet conscious haiku.

  9. A poignant take, Amrit. Water scarcity already affects every continent...!!

  10. And this I could never think of with the theme of Beach. It's a sure thing that you get to read something different when you come to Amrit's blog. :D
