565 : The Sand Dragon

Haiku Heights has the prompt 'Sand'.

Fears are built on sand.
Even dragons wash away
With the swelling tide.

  1. Lovely take on the prompt :)

  2. Sand, without tides, would be scary desert-ed places with dragons.

  3. Oh yeah...even a mighty dragon can't face nature's fury. Great take, Cosmo!!

  4. Nice take on sand!! That really is a formidable dragon!! Scary!! Thank goodness for the tide that washes it away!!

    Seriously speaking J Cosmo it must be a laborious task making them and to think that the tide comes in twice a day to wash it all away!!

  5. I really enjoyed the deeper meaning in your words and the hopefulness that many if not all of our fears will wash away with time!

    Beautiful haiku and I agree with WabiSabi

    Very nicely written!

  8. Fears built on sand, yes, lacking foundation. All that is built on sand will either wash away or be tossed aside by the winds. I loved this haiku, and I'm not a big fan of that form. Yours worked in all the best ways, Cos. Peace, Amy

    1. Thanks Amy, I have only recently tried a few Haiku. Haiki? It's an interesting discipline. Can make you pull your hair out at times, tring to get the meaning within the syllable count.

  9. Why don't you stick to something you're good at, like limericks?

  10. Well for sure, J.C, one thinking I wouldn't want to be would be a sand castle. They are sooo fragile, it won't take much of a wave to disfigure them for live. My fears are more substantial I am afraid.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
