Southern California Haikus

ROOTS

Family meeting
generations past, present
glasses raised, toasts made

(and/or)

Family meeting
all generations, present
Toasts, to past, future

NEXT STEPS

Wake up, breathe deep, roll
to shaded spot on the sand
work done for the day

PONDER

Seaside hotel view
lights in the far off distance
the glow of seeing

LA

Order too many
that’s the food truck taco rule
can’t ever go wrong

MOVEMENT

Stones at water’s edge
glistening cool in the sun
rumble as waves break

BREEZE

Mists on the mountains
subtle tilt and whirl of trees
hush of early morn

MIRAGE

Driving the long drive
lands, structures and blur, until
that first peek of sea

SOCAL

Welcoming jetlag
to see the full rise and shine
of the West Coast sun
