low tide
we leave our footprints
to the wetness

Caribbean Kigo Kukai, June 2013. Kigo: "wetness," with the requirement that the word itself must be used

Love it! (I bet the organizers of this kigo didn't expect the word wetness used in this way ;-))

How wonderful, here you've been all over my favourite blogs and I never visited how uncouth of me...I don't really go by any rules of methods of writing but to me 'we leave our footprints to the wetness' touches me deeply it's wonderful ...

__Low tide... rings another bell, the Nantaskets!

low tide
sea gulls hide from the sun
beach umbrellas

Thank you, polona.

Thanks, Lorraine. And welcome to my blog. Yes, I think we have been to some of the same places.

sea rebuilds its territory
