the sun begins to peek out.
So begins a new day.

    Wow Steven!!! You know so many formats, you are a real poetry lover!

    I loved the tranquil mood in which this little poem left me. Such peace can be found in simple scenes like you just painted it.

    Really well done, my friend,

    5/5 Ingrid

    I love this post haiku, the description and the imaginary of starting a new day while the waves touches the rocks is beautiful.
