Rhythm of the waves
Lured from the ocean today
Gently rock to sleep

  9. Lovely haiku.

    Though shorter, I personally find haiku much more difficult than tanka.

    This was a very successful haiku.

    • Thanks for your kind words. I looked up Tanka, as I’m new to writing poetry, and found it looked like something I might try. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
