Blue bay with kelp

At Point Lobos State Reserve, the gorgeous deep blue of the ocean with its beds of kelp. We all went there to write haiku before the Haiku Retreat at Asilomar. Since Point Lobos is nearby, it is an opportunity to go there while we are in the neighborhood. The water in this view lifts and falls, lifts and falls in a great quiet undulating sheet. On a calm day like this, it is very powerful and, at the same time, very quiet. What looks like the curve of the earth is an illusion produced by the fisheye lens.

unjust wars
how they've come and gone
pulse of the autumn tide
