Haiku : Empty Shell

1-ChaNdipur 068

Oh ! retreating waves

lonely beach has lost its soul

empty shells, silent


Carpe Diem’s new feature  ‘Vision Quest’  is on the second day and the inspiration being this one,  a wonderful haiku from Chèvrefeuille

next to my footprint
the empty shell of a hermit crab –
Ah! what a sadness

 (c) Chèvrefeuille (2012)

  1. A state of mind so elusive in words… you have framed that state forever…. Its magically beautiful Mani. And I can not ignore the image… awesome fit for the lines.
    one of those moments when you love you are blogging and got to read/see this🙂

  2. Your writing is special – you need to know that. How much you say in a short simple haiku is a wonder. I never enjoy giving praise ,and think it does not always benefit the search for quality. Here I have to make an exception.
